One Month Left Until EDC Week – Full Electric Daisy Carnival Lineup Out Now
The anticipation of Electric Daisy Carnival 2017 has been quite the fiasco. First, as with many festivals, ticket sales began far before anyone knew who they were paying for. It is a strange strategy, but with the festival so popular it doesn’t really seem to matter. Then, the hype for EDC Week began and it got a lot of people excited. It was safe to say several artists heading to Vegas for the week were also likely to stay for the festival itself. Yet, while the EDC Week lineup kept building, nothing prepared fans for the lineup announcement. Finally, the lineup dropped via DJ mix and left everyone to guess until the official poster came out.
Specially made for fans of electronic music, this year’s lineup announcement was the most unique we’ve seen thus far. The whole thing went down on Sirius XM’s Electric Area on Night Owl Radio as well as on Facebook live. Fans heard a series of rapid-fire mixes dedicated to the artists playing at each stage of the festival. The 2 to 3-minute mixes had around 23 to 26 artists, leaving even the biggest EDM fans with the tip-of-the-tongue phenomenon as they had to guess which artists were in the lineup. It wasn’t until the next day that the official lineup poster came out. So, for an entire evening, the buzz of EDC filled social media with everyone guessing who they might see at this year’s event. The unique nature of the announcement brought a ton of buzz to Facebook and Night Owl Radio, nearly 6,000 people watched the live stream. These people got the inside scoop (as long as they could guess correctly). Electric Daisy Carnival is held June 16-19th at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
