Five Ways EDC Mexico Differs From Its Las Vegas Cousin

After making its first foray off American soil in London last July, Electric Daisy Carnival continued its international expansion March 15 and 16 with the inaugural EDC Mexico. The south-of-the-border version of the massively-popular, EDM-fueled carnival took place over two days at a Mexico City speedway called the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez. Read More



Paris Checks in at EDC

Another year and, if you couldn’t tell by the discarded beads from broken kandi clackity-clacking down Interstate 15, another Electric Daisy Carnival is in the books. This year’s event didn’t suffer from the sudden windstorm that put a damper on last year’s second night, which means unfortunately it did suffer from the full complement of Paris Hilton. Hilton was relatively subdued for the weekend, taking just enough time to Instagram her stupid, stupid outfits before boarding the chopper and rolling up on the Las Vegas Motor Read More

Nicky Romero Talks Figurehead DJs, Hype

You just got off stage at Electric Daisy Carnival. How was it? It was really, really insane to be up there and see all those people. I couldn’t expect anything better. The visuals were amazing and I think it was the best EDC show I’ve done so far. You’ve revealed something that bothers you in the industry: producers who pay to get their names on tracks without actually helping with the creative process. If you could magically make the industry perfect, what else would you Read More


On the Ground at EDC

Friday, 9:12 p.m. I hear an EDC first timer ask how tight security will be. “Think they’ll search my shoes?” he wonders aloud. A friend dressed as a sexy ballerina tells me she hasn’t been to a rave in 10 years. I like how EDC attracts curious newbies, loyal veterans and OG ravers who have been off the circuit for a Read More
