Electric Daisy Carnival Update
Orlando ain't ever seen anything like this! Electric Daisy Carnival is coming to town on the Friday afternoon/night and Saturday afternoon/night of Memorial Day weekend. The DJ names have not officially been released however the promoter's Facebook site did release some names and our roving reporter Thommy has shared them with us: Tiësto, Ferry Corsten, Paul van Dyk, Afrojack, Benny Benassi, Gabriel & Dresden. Electrohouse/Dubstep fans will recognize Datsik, Diplo, Feed Me & Skrillex. Here is what we know and have rumors on:
1) Event is at Tinker Field adjacent the Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium.
2) We've heard there will be 5 different stages.....and carnival rides!
3) Tickets right now are $99 + fees at Ticketmaster that includes both days!
4) Supposedly 1-day tickets will go on sale this Friday however there will be a price increase too.
5) I'm speculating that Tiësto is Friday night because his website has him in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
6) Much of the rest of the lineup is supposed to be released this Friday too.
7) An earlier rumor has Armin van Buuren, the #1 DJ in the world, coming. Unconfirmed.
8) Earlier rumors have David Guetta and Will.I.Am coming. Unconfirmed.
The video above is EDC's 2010 trailer which is superior to the 2011 trailer. Enjoy!
