The Artists of Electric Daisy Carnival
The largest EDM festival in North American history is fast approaching, with hundreds of thousands of ravers about to descend on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The artists are already gearing up for this landmark event, and ten of them shared with us why they are excited for the show to begin. Read on and join in the anticipation.
#10
Datsik
Bare & Datsik - King Kong (Original Mix) [Subhuman]
I’m excited for EDC Vegas because the production value and the amount of money that goes into the spectacles and the fireworks are out of control. Nearly ever single artist you’d ever want to see in EDM is on the bill. I’m really stoked to hang out with my bass music friends too–they’re all gonna be there!
#9
W&W
W&W - Beta (Alpha Mix) [Captivating Sounds]
We’re excited about EDC because if the stories are true about the Vegas crowd, it’s going to be one of the best gigs we’ve done so far!
#8
Thomas Gold
David Tort & Norman Doray - Chase The Sun (Thomas Gold Remix) [Caballero]
I’m excited about EDC Vegas because it’s one of the most impressive festivals in the world, and because it’s a unique experience that I get to be part of all over again!
#7
Borgore
Borgore feat Dev - Kiss My Lips (Original Mix) [Buygore]
I’m excited for EDC Week because I’m playing three times and I’m launching my new "Full Flex" show, with an ice cream truck the size of a bus, pole dancers, and six confetti cannons. Bring umbrellas, too, because I’m going to cover you with shaving cream.
#6
Gabriel & Dresden
Gabriel & Dresden vs Secret Panda Society - No Reservations (Kevin Focus Reserved Remix) [Armada]
We’re excited about EDC because we have a bunch of new songs to test out!
#5
Steve Aoki
Steve Aoki & Travis Barker feat Kid Cudi - Cudi The Kid (Original Mix) [Ultra]
There’s so much to be excited about at EDC every year, but this year I’m really looking forward to seeing all of the amazing acts on the Dim Mak stage. Also I’ll be performing with the legendary Blue Man Group for the first time ever on the mainstage Saturday. It’s going to be epic!
#4
Markus Schulz
Omnia & IRA - The Fusion (Markus Schulz Los Angeles '12 Reconstruction) [Armada]
I’m excited about EDC because to me, the 2011 events gave EDM in the US its very own Woodstock. It was the flash of realization when you knew beyond all doubt that dance music had finally took hold in the States. To come back and revisit that is going to be phenomenal. See you in Las Vegas, people!
#3
Flux Pavilion
Nero - Must Be The Feeling (Flux Pavilion & Nero Remix) [MTA]
Firstly I’ve never been to Vegas, but this festival is one that everyone all over the world has told me about, so I’m excited to see what all the hype is about!
#2
Above & Beyond
Above & Beyond feat Zoe Johnston - Alchemy (Album Version) [Anjunabeats]
We’re excited about EDC because we are hosting a Group Therapy Stage at one of the biggest parties we perform at in the world, so we know the vibe and crowd are going to be incredible.
#1
Fedde le Grand
David Guetta feat Ludacris feat Taio Cruz - Little Bad Girl (Fedde le Grand Remix) [EMI France]
I’m really looking forward to playing at the Vegas leg of EDC. New York was off the hook so if that’s anything to go off of, then Vegas should be something really spectacular for everyone that turns up.
