It may be seven months away, but the journey to Electric Daisy Carnival 2014 starts next Monday. That's the first chance for revelers to buy tickets for the three-day electronic dance music marathon, being held June 20-22 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
On November 25, those who previously have purchased passes through Flavorus online ticketing for any of the three Vegas-based EDCs can take part in the 24-hour Headliner Loyalty Program presale, which allows for one purchase per account holder of up to four passes to next year's festival, starting at noon PST. At noon on Tuesday, that opportunity closes, confirmation e-mails go out, and sales don't open again until Monday, December 2, when the more inclusive—but limited-supply—Early Owl Presale begins. (More details can be found here.)
Pass prices are $249 for regular passes and $499 for VIP (21 and over) during the presale, and will likely increase during the general sale, the dates of which have not been revealed. Last year's general sale began in January, with passes selling out by the end of April, before Insomniac Events even released the talent lineup.
Insomniac also revealed today that EDC Week, which includes ancillary events mostly held on the Strip, will take place June 17-23, and will include an inaugural, previously announced dance music awards show, to be produced by American Music Award and Golden Globes producer Dick Clark Productions.
