With two months to go until dance music fest Electric Daisy Carnival returns to Las Vegas, we got a hint at the lineup today. MTV.com reported several DJs and electronic dance music artists that will take the festival stages this June—many of whom are Vegas residents and regulars—including Above & Beyond, Afrojack, Steve Angello, Avicii, Bassnectar, Kaskade, Tiesto and Porter Robinson. MTV.com also reported that Benny Benassi, Carl Cox, Chase & Status, Flux Pavilion, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Richie Hawtin (with no mention of if he’ll be playing a set under his Plastikman alias), Sebastian Ingrosso, Knife Party, Erick Morillo and Armin van Buuren will play the Insomniac Events fest.

The event returns to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway June 8-10, with sets running each night from dusk till dawn. And with a three-day bill to fill, many acts have yet to be named. Be sure to keep checking back for all your EDC updates.
