Electric Daisy Carnival is for more than the crowd who will be at Las Vegas Motor Speedway from June 21-23. Once again, festival producers Insomniac are bringing EDC Week to Las Vegas, a string of festival-related shows and events throughout town from June 18-25.

The slate of daytime and nighttime events includes sets from EDC artists at Strip nightclubs and dayclubs all week long, as well as the multimedia Bassrush Massive show at The Orleans Arena and the EDMbiz Conference at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

“We have collaborated with the best operators in Las Vegas to create an incredible, nonstop schedule surrounding Electric Daisy Carnival,” Insomniac CEO and founder Pasquale Rotella said in a statement. “We have fans traveling from all 50 states and 46 countries this year to attend EDC, and we’re thrilled to amplify the festival spirit with an exciting seven days of entertainment throughout EDC Week in Las Vegas.

“For those who were unable to purchase a ticket to the festival, I hope you will still join us to be a part of the overall experience and energy in Las Vegas. Worldwide, there is truly nothing like EDC Week, and Las Vegas is a city that was built to make these amazing events become a reality.”
