Electric Daisy coming to Speedway

Electric Daisy Carnival has made it official — it will be running as a
three-day festival June 24 to 26 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. So,
congratulations to the Speedway for booking the event that is the polar
opposite of everything the Speedway was built to host.

“We’re excited to be working with Insomniac to stage the Electric
Daisy Carnival,” Speedway President Chris Powell said in a statement.
“Today’s announcement is great news for the Las Vegas community, as EDC
will create a significant boost to our local economy.

“We at the speedway specialize in promoting and staging mega-events,
and EDC certainly qualifies as a mega-event. Also, we’re quite happy
with the relationship we’ve forged with our friends at Insomniac, who’ve
displayed years of experience and unparalleled creativity. I know
they’re the proper partners to help create an event that is
entertaining, safe and successful.”

And also, one that will enrage your average NASCAR fan. Well done all around, kids.
