EDC tease stirring fan frenzy online

To paraphrase Imminent Ned: Brace yourselves—the raver riot is coming.

Insomniac Events head honcho Pasquale Rotella announced today via Facebook that he’ll announce the dates and ticket onsale information for the 2014 edition of Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas this month.

Given the fervor that the platformed EDC news usually inspires—tickets for the June 2013 fest went on sale in January, sold out by the end of April, with the talent lineup shared three days later—it’s no surprise Rotella’s tease is already provoking a candy-kid cavalcade toward the post’s comments section.

One prospective partier said she isn’t waiting for the date confirmation to lock down weekend lodging (cue knife-sharpening from hotel room rate adjusters). Another used the opportunity to plead for a non-summer EDC, which makes us wonder if she's merely confusing Molly fevers for hot desert air.

But the majority of the discussion centered around the reminder (first revealed back in July) that the first batch of tickets will be only available to those who bought them for 2013. Which has every Krewella fan who couldn’t afford or missed last summer’s beats-and-bass orgy—or had their ex-boyfriend buy their pass—singing the not-fair! chorus.

Fret not, revelers—today is not the Terrible Tuesday you’re making it out to be. It took EDC almost four months to sell out this year, unlike, say, Coachella, which sells out in less than four hours. To put it another way: If you can find a way to sneak your open cigarette pack into that bedazzled g-string at the festival, you can strategize an effective plan for its general onsale.
