Get ready, Orlando, because one of the hottest EDM festivals in the nation will once again make a stop in Central Florida this November.
The Electric Daisy Festival is the product of Insomniac, the company behind some of North America’s biggest EDM gatherings. Their flagship Carnival, EDC Las Vegas, has long been a scene that is both wonderfully surreal and full of thumping flavor, and that has been successfully replicated at EDC Orlando.
The 2017 edition of EDC Orlando was a record-breaking success. The event, headlined by such heavyweights as Diplo, Alan Walker and Dirty Audio, attracted 80,000 fans to Tinker Field for two-days of beats and non-stop partying. For those who have never attended an EDC event, it’s one that will simply blow minds.
At its heart, it’s an event that showcases the best-of-the-best in EDM, but EDC Orlando is more than that. It is, in every sense of the word, a carnival, with the Tinker FIeld campus lit in brilliant neon-colors that brings the historic former minor league baseball field to life. To take a break from the music, one can ride the full-sized carnival rides and soak in some of the unique art installations one will experience in their lifetimes.
EDC Orlando has become one of the most sought-after tickets in the EDM world and has also risen to become one of the premier events of its kind in Florida, a state that is known as an electro-music breeding ground. The dates for this year’s delirious festivities have changed, to Nov. 9 and 10, but other than that, it’s still the same festival, albeit with different artists.
So, for those unable to make it to Coachella, EDC Orlando will be a great second choice. The lineup is great and the atmosphere is fun. Plus, it’s in Orlando, the entertainment capital of the South, with numerous things to see and do outside of the festival.
Tickets will go on sale on April 18, and thanks to the popularity of the event, those tickets will go fast. This article will be updated with the full lineup when it's released, but until that day happens. Start planning on what to wear and who the squad will be because EDC Orlando will be an experience that many will never forget.
