Electric Daisy Carnival has come a long way from its modest birth in Southern California. From one scene in 1997 to eight scenes scattered throughout the speedway, the road to more than twenty years of EDC history has been filled with many ups and downs.
What attracts Carnival Electric Daisy
Creating an atmosphere of complete immersion has always been one of the top priorities for the organizers. Even the very first festival was distinguished by a rich decor with sophisticated lighting and a dance floor for 6000 visitors. Now the festival has not only expanded to eight scenes, each of which has a unique design, but also is completely transformed into a bright world of neon and flashing lights. For eight years, the EDC has been held in Las Vegas, and the cost of producing the festival is growing more and more.
EDC attracts enough people to fill a major city. Over 134,000 people go through the gates of the festival every night. This is more than 400,000 people in three days. How big is he? More than the population of Cleveland, which is nearby. Yes, and people here have more fun than in Cleveland.
Art installations throughout the Carnival Electric Daisy have become another attractive element. From fire-breathing snakes and towering gardens to graffiti and winding wooden structures - the level of art at the festival is unparalleled.
One of the new carnival features has been the post office, which has been offering fans custom postcards with EDC photographs over the years. Other novelties include a saloon with a bar, as well as a theater for demonstrating magical performances and a puppet show.
Electric Daisy Carnival was originally nothing more than a party in stock. The only way to find out when and where the raves will take place depended on handouts.
Arriving too early led some people to ask whether they came there. On the other hand, being late was not such a bad idea, given the frequency of dispersal of unauthorized raves.
DJ Steve "Kool-Aid" ran an underground advertising company that specialized in organizing these legendary parties.
In 1997, Insomniac co-founder Pasquale Rotella decided to reach a wider audience. Under Rotella's leadership, the EDC has evolved from a poorly equipped rave to a hefty festival.
EDC in its current form was first held at the Shrine Hall Expo in Los Angeles, where more than 5,000 ravers danced all night long. The festival changed venues over the next few years before returning to the City of Angels.
Previously, the event was held only one day, but soon increased to three. After moving to Sin City, the festival expanded and was also held in New York, Chicago, Puerto Rico, Brazil, the UK and Japan.
Participants are encouraged to be themselves and wear what makes them happy. Colorful wigs, animal costumes, extravagant shoes - anything. But large chains, jewelry with spikes, gloves with LED lights and gas masks are prohibited. Do not ask why.
There is a chapel on the festival site, but you may not suspect how many people use it. Since moving to Vegas, the festival has hosted more than 300 weddings. Weddings have become so popular that recently even a second chapel had to be built.
If you arm yourself with a calculator, you’ll understand that about five full minutes of fireworks are typed per night. You will see them at different times, but EDC must follow strict rules: fireworks can only be launched in certain places and by prior agreement.
The festival requires 100 loaders, 70 lifts, 133 lighting towers, 305 golf carts, as well as more than 500 buses and a staff of 5,000 people. All this is required for the construction of 8 scenes, 18 attractions and four Ferris wheels. If you count the parking lot, then the entire territory of the festival occupies 910 acres.
