The largest U.S. electronic dance music festival will be even bigger in its first Vegas incarnation. Electric Daisy Carnival, which drew more than 160,000 attendees over two days in LA last year, will expand to three days, June 24-26, promoter Insomniac Events has announced.

The venue for the event has also been confirmed: the 140,000-plus capacity Las Vegas Motor Speedway, located some 15 miles north of town.

We also now have a ticket on-sale date - Saturday, April 23, at noon. Prices have not be revealed. According to Insomniac's website, "tickets will start out at your best value and increase as ticket allotments run out."
