They say you oughtta stick to the buddy system at Electric Daisy Carnival. The same goes for the peripheral parties leading up to and following the three-day festival. So slap on your kandi beads and grab our palm, friend. We’re gonna get through this together: Paradise Beach hosts the classic Bassrush Pool Party with head-to-head sets from Brosafari vs. Loudpvck, Crizzly vs. Protohype and more. (At Hard Rock Hotel, 12 p.m., HardRockHotel.com.) Now, put some clothes on! You’re bouncing to Bassrush Massive at Brooklyn Bowl, where Flosstradamus, Big Gigantic and others will shake the walls. (At the Linq, 9 p.m., Vegas.BrooklynBowl.com.) All ages are welcome at Boulevard Pool as Dash Berlin works the decks with up-and-comer Kygo. (At the Cosmopolitan, 8 p.m., MarqueeLasVegas.com.) Then, it’s a barely-there affair at M Resort’s Daydream Pool Club for Neon Night Swim. Wear your best and brightest suits and enjoy the open bar from 8-10 p.m. (12300 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 8 p.m., DayDreamLV.com.) Finally, catch Carl Cox at his first non-after-hours set at Light.

Bust out your squirt guns and bring ’em to Beauty Bar for the Great American Gabberfest, boasting two stages of music “too extreme for the mainstream.” We’re looking at you, fans of terrorcore and hardstyle.
