Electric-Daisy-Carnival-Sexy-Dancers

Here at Big Shot we were bombarded this by summer festivals announcing their lineups. Some bills looked good, some were very good. But by all accounts festival season is looking good this year. It’s only fitting that at the end of the week Insomniac, the promoters behind Electric Daisy Carnival, dropped the lineup for their 21st edition.

Taking place at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on June 16-18, 2017, EDC’s bill features over 230 artists. This year’s dusk till dawn shindig will include eight immersive stages and a parade of roaming art cars spread throughout Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Continue Reading

Helicopter to Electric Daisy Carnival With Your Friends For $5,000

The worst part of attending any music festival is driving there and back. You’ve got to coordinate your arrival and departure with your friends, navigate your way through traffic and figure out parking. Yuck! The stress from traveling typically taints the experience of seeing your favorite DJs and live acts. But there is another pricy alternative. For those attending Electric Daisy Carnival on June 16-18, 2017 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Maverick Helicopters is offering its services to alleviate you of these burdens. They’ll transport you and your friends to EDC in carefree style aboard one of its EC130/H130 ECO-star aircrafts, featuring voice-activated headsets to talk to the pilots and listen to electronic dance music.

Once aboard you can sit back and relax in the cushy leather seats and enjoy the breathtaking view as you rub elbows with EDC DJs and celebrity types.

While the 15-minute will allow you to arrive stress-free and ready to party, it ain’t cheap. Private charter prices start at $3,000 for up to seven people for a one-way flight or $5,000 for up to seven people for a roundtrip flight. Individual seat rates start at $550 per person for a one-way flight or $850 per person for a roundtrip flight. Prices are based off of per day rates.

According to Bryan Kroten, vice president of marketing at Maverick Helicopters, business is booming. “Since partnering with EDC nearly seven years ago, helicopter demand to the festival has grown significantly,” he says. “We have gone from using two aircraft the first year to a fleet of more than 22 helicopters each night.”

Hey, you only live once, right?

Electric Daisy Carnival, Las Vegas 2015 (Finally!) Goes Beyond EDM

Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas Day fireworks

Yep, it’s that time of the year again. Insomniac, the producers of Electric Daisy Carnival, Las Vegas, has confirmed its next edition will take place in Sin City at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on June 19–21, 2015. Over 200 DJs are slated to perform on eight stages over three nights. Most notable to this year’s roster is the inclusion of non-EDM jocks (hallelujah!) such as Chris Liebing, Dimitri From Paris, Diesleboy, Moby, Tokimonsta and Pan-Pot.

In addition to DJ sets and fireworks, fans can bid on “newly released artist experiences through the very first EDC Week Charity Auction,” including taking a selfie with Hardwell on stage at EDC, sitting in the DJ booth with Martin Garrix, making sushi at Nobu with Krewella, and more.

Obligatory press release gush from Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac: “EDC has grown so much since its move to Las Vegas five years ago. Each year, we push ourselves to give Headliners a variety of music genres and an experience that goes beyond their expectations. Now that the lineup has been released, I’m excited to announce the EDC Week Charity Auction, which offers unique experiences incorporating EDC artists. These new offerings allow the artists and fans to share unforgettable adventures, while also giving back to the Las Vegas community.”
