In 2013 Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman dubbed an entire week leading up to and following Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas as “EDC Week”. The goal was to bring seven days of curated entertainment and special events for fans of EDM that come from all points of the world to experience EDC Las Vegas.
This year, the festivities begin Wednesday, May 16th and last until Wednesday, May 23rd. Throughout the week, guests will be able to enjoy world-class DJs in some of the best nightclubs and venues Sin City has to offer. Some of these venues include Hakkassan Las Vegas, Intrigue Nightclub, Drai's, Daylight, Encore Beach Club, Omnia, XS, Marquee and Wet Republic among others.
The venues will be home to some of Insomniac's branded genres including Dreamstate, Bassrush, Insomniac Records, Space Yacht and more.
The lineup was just expanded this week and includes major artists from all genres of EDM. Some of which include Above & Beyond, Afrojack, Alesso, Andrew Rayel, The Chainsmokers, Borgore, Camelphat, Dillon Francis, Diplo, Duke Dumont, Eric Prydz, Excision, Ferry Corsten, Gorgon City, Green Velvet, Hardwell, Illenium, Jamie Jones, Kaskade, Kygo, Markus Schulz, Marshmello, Martin Garrix, Olliver Heldens, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Porter Robinson, Snails, Tiesto, Yellow Claw and Zedd among many many others.
Insomniac has also launched the EDC Week Charity Auction, presented in partnership with eBay for Charity. In 2017, fans from around the world bid on more than 50 once-in-a-lifetime opportunities with EDC artists. The auction raised over $162,000 for Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada.
