Las Vegas’ first Electric Daisy Carnival is set to run dusk till dawn later this month, so perhaps it’s fitting promoter Insomniac Events announced the lineup for the three-day dance festival at 11:29 Friday night.
Some 125 acts were revealed, along with set times for five of the six stages planned for the June 24-26 event scheduled for Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The schedule for The Dome was unavailable, and three slots for Saturday’s main stage were listed as TBA.
Among the biggest names on the bill: Tiësto, Paul Oakenfold, David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia, Plastikman, Empire of the Sun, Boys Noize, Infected Mushroom, Röyksopp, Afrojack, Calvin Harris, Roger Sanchez, ATB, Ferry Corsten, Steve Aoki, Wolfgang Gartner, Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77, Skrillex, MSTRKRFT, Major Lazer, Roni Size and the Las Vegas-bred Crystal Method.
One surprise: the absence of Benny Benassi, who had been confirmed by his publicist. Less surprising: the absence of Daft Punk, despite intense hopefulness on the part of EDC ticket holders.
