The Electric Daisy Carnival, an annual electronic music dance festival which brings over 150,000 attendees, recently began its summer tour in late May. The carnival first hit Orlando, Florida and continues its tour across country with stops in Denver, Colorado; Dallas, Texas; Las Vegas, Nevada; and finally Puerto Rico. The festival itself began in 1997 at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles. Over the years, the Carnival grew from its original 30,000 attendees to over 180,000 in 2010. This made it the largest electronic dance festival outside of Europe.

The 2011 Electric Daisy Carnival is bigger than ever, with each event housing five separate stages and lasting from 4PM to sunrise. This year’s lineup has also expanded to feature the biggest names in electronic dance music. Tiesto, Afrojack, Benny Benassi, Calvin Harris, Paul Van Dyk, and Funkagenda are just a few of the over 50 acts that will be performing. The Las Vegas leg of the tour has even extended the carnival to three days in June. The carnival has grown to be one of the most popular events for anyone who is anyone in the electronic music scene. Its increasing popularity has even sparked other festivals to try and move into the market. The first annual Identity Festival is following in The Electric Daisy’s footsteps and starting off with a bang. It will be the first ever electronic only music festival andwill make stops in over 20 cities across the U.S.

Even with the added competition, The Electric Daisy Carnival continues to blow up. Tickets for the event, which is rain or shine, start at $60 for one day and stretch to $200 for a three day pass. The age limit for the festival is 18+ and security is strict, so leave plenty of time to get through.

For those attending The Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, the fun doesn't have to stop at the door. EDC Rides is offering shuttles to and from the Electric Daisy Carnival all night. The party continues on each party bus with video mixes by EDC featured artists. EDC Rides is giving the designated driver a break and running these shuttles to some of the most popular resorts in Las Vegas. Whether your going for one day, or all three, EDC Rides has a package for you.

The Carnival’s first stop in Orlando, Florida proved to be a huge success despite the weather. People stuck it out through lightening and rain in order to party with over 100,000 electronic Music fans. If that is any indication for the rest of the summer, then The Electronic Music Carnival is not something you’re going to want to miss.
