Electric Daisy Carnival - Orlando Is Coming!
EDC came to town on Memorial Day weekend in 2011. After nearly a month-long period of no rain in Orlando, there was rain that first night of the two-night event. Lots of it. With lots of lightning and thunder too! And organizers and the City of Orlando were ill-prepared for it. There was a no-return policy for anyone that left Tinker Field yet there was next to nowhere to flee to. The neighboring Citrus Bowl Stadium, which could have accommodated everyone under its bleachers, was not made available to anyone. The hour-long deluge fortunately subsided but one bolt in the wrong place would have resulted in tragedy. This time organizers have pushed the event to "Fall, 2012" to avoid our summer afternoon thunderstorms.
Last night, HTG Events, a local company that books DJ events into Orlando, held an informational meeting at The Abbey for anyone interested in volunteering to promote the 2012 edition of Electric Daisy Carnival - Orlando. If you're interested you should submit this form. The exact dates have not been announced but we're still hearing the November 9-11 weekend. You might set that weekend aside just in case this is accurate because you don't want to miss it. Last year more than 100 international DJ's came to Orlando at one time including Tiësto, Paul van Dyk, Benny Benassi, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, Icey, Calvin Harris, Afrojack, Gabriel & Dresden, Chris Lake, Skrillex, Baby Anne, Heavygrinder, Datsik and on and on!!
