Haute Event: Electric Daisy Carnival Ends on a High Note

The final night of the 16th Annual Electric Daisy Carnival came to a close with 115,000 fans dancing beneath the desert sky at the fully transformed Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Truly a 360-degree carnival experience, the evening featured extended pyrotechnics displays on each stage, an additional fireworks show, impromptu theatrical performances throughout the crowd and a full evening of world-class music.

Insomniac concluded their first ever “You Are the Headliner” costume contest, which treated winners from each evening to all-star VIP treatment, including helicopter transfers on Maverick Helicopters and artist-style hospitality. Fans also became the feature of the festival on the debut “Discovery Stage” where aspiring DJ/Producer contest winners performed in front of a dancing crowd of their own peers.

EDC also played the setting to another new beginning tonight, as character Nigel Ficke wed a young couple as the night’s fireworks display erupted in the distance.

The third and final evening of Electric Daisy Carnival enjoyed cooperative weather, running smoothly from 7 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. Full-sized carnival rides gave fans a whirl all night and large-scale interactive art installations including Flaming Lotus Girls’ “Serpent Mother” were able to feature their full flame.
