From its humble origins in a Los Angeles theater to its current reign as the world's largest electronic music festival, Electric Daisy Carnival has been virtually synonymous with the rise of EDM. Now producing multi-day summer festivals around the world, EDC's ever-growing popularity charges ahead unabated, with recent additions in Las Vegas, London, and Mexico City. Featuring pristine festival grounds, state-of-the-art audiovisuals, and the biggest names in electronic dance music (Tiesto, David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, to name a few), EDC never fails to leave its all-night revelers in euphoric bliss.
Electronic Daisy Carnival had its inaugural festival at LA's Shrine Expo Hall in 1997. Its popularity grew throughout the '00s as it expanded to additional cities, quickly becoming the biggest electronic music festival in the country and earning the nickname the "American Ibiza." Over the years, EDC has hosted a veritable who's who of internationally renowned DJs, including Paul van Dyk, Armand Van Helden, and Paul Oakenfold, and it continues to draw top talent as it expands into Europe and Latin America. In 2013, EDC's Las Vegas weekend drew more than 320,000 people, setting a record as the largest electronic music festival in the world.
