Electric Daisy Carnival, better known as EDC, is music festival that is held in different locations around the world throughout the year. The annual June concert has been held in Las Vegas for the past 2 years, and will continue that as the 2013 EDC kicks of tonight in Las Vegas at the Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and goes from Friday until Sunday. Last year the Las Vegas EDC event attracted 300,000 people, making it the largest North American electronic music festival and dance music event. Wind and weather conditions forced the show to shut down early one of the nights during last years Las Vegas event. Hopefully weather will be much better this year and allow the show to run as scheduled all 3 days. Right now the it is actually very nice outside, so it looks pretty likely that the weather will cooperate this year. The first EDC was held in 1997 by Insomniac Events, and has blossomed into many different events held throughout the world throughout the year. Tickets are sold out, but they cost over $200 for all three days. VIP packages run as much as $20,000 for 20 people. Many people travel in groups from around the country to come to EDC events, and the Las Vegas one is one of the most popular. This year's Las Vegas EDC event will feature six full stages of music, many different carnival rides, an area for merchandise and other vendors, interactive art installations and much more. Literally hundreds of performers are scheduled to appear at the 2013 Las Vegas EDC. Some of the great spectacles that made an appearance at last year's EDC Las Vegas included huge fireworks shows, skydivers who were lit up as they were falling from the sky, as well as vintage military plane flyover. Party goers must be 18 or over for general admission, and 21 or over for VIP sections and bar areas. Last year's EDC even in Las Vegas brought over $200 million to the local economy according to Insomniac.
