For the first time in 2012, EDC expanded to New York. The two-day festival was held during Memorial Day Weekend, and people from the Northeast flocked for EDC that was filled with hard style, bass, house, and techno, and the exclusive Dreamstate for trance. However, unfortunate news has been announced by Pasquale Rotella via Facebook. EDC New York will NOT be returning in 2017.
“Although EDC New York 2016 was one of my favorites hosted in the Big Apple, we’ve decided to take a break in 2017. We hope many of you East Coast Headliners will join us in Vegas. We’ll have an Art Car sound system paying homage to New York DJs past and present. As I write this, I’ve gotta mention all the hard work and creativity that is going into the completely reimagined kineticFIELD, as well as an entirely new ADDITIONAL stage. The team and I are energized about an epic EDC Las Vegas 2017!”
This will be the first time in five years that New Yorkers will not be experiencing EDC in their city. It's a shame about the sad and unfortunately bad News but there is always EDC Las Vegas , Middlelands in Texas, and Electric Forest for a two-weekend event all in 2017. Do not fear, Pasquale has big plans for the future of Electric Daisy Carnival. Hopefully, we will see soon for what's in store.
