What a Week to be in Vegas!!! Your guide to EDC Vegas
If you don’t already know, it’s still not too late to make it to Las Vegas for Insomniac’s flagship Electric Daisy Carnival. Since 2011, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway has been hosting the largest electronic dance music festival in North America, and 2022 will be no different.
The main festival will take place over 3 days from Friday, May 20th – to Sunday, May 22nd but, things start to get interesting in Vegas (when are things not interesting in Vegas!!?) from Wednesday, May 18th, and the parties continue through Tuesday, May 24th, so What a Week to be in Vegas!!!
Wednesday, May 18th
Kicking off at 11 am, Dom Dolla goes back-to-back with a man tearing up the scene right now, John Summit. You can find these 2 at Marquee Dayclub from 11 am. Yes, that’s right, 11 am! Remember, it’s Vegas, and it’s EDC week. Later that night, catch Lowkey, Cloonee & guests at Marquee Nightclub, as well as Partiboi69 playing Discopussy.

Friday, May 20th – Day 1
Grounds open at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway fully at 7pm but, the opening ceremony kicks off at 5pm.

If this isn’t enough for you, the parties start on the strip again from the early AM with the likes of Kaskade, Deadmau5, and Martin Garrix headlining.
