Official Dates for Electric Daisy Carnival & 5 Acts We Want There!
Electric Daisy Carnival approaches! Now even though this is the "San Francisco Tremor"...we show love to our brothers in the south side of the west coast. There are a few key events that warrant the journey down to SoCal to Los Angeles, and the mecca of them all is Electric Daisy Carnival. It is a sort of pilgrimage if you will for all electronic music lovers & enthusiasts of the west side of the United States. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if some Midwest or east coast people made the journey. While there are other dates in Dallas and Puerto Rico this year (one short of last year which also included Denver), the magnum opus is always the LA show that carries for 2 days. Last year it was H-U-G-E! Hell, even Armin van Buuren said it was his favorite event of the year in his DJMag #1 interview. Coverage by MTV, appearances by Lil Jon, Rivers Cuomo, and the Black Eyed Peas, and 2 days of nonstop music from premiere DJ's from all over the world. It doesn't get much better than that people. And while the line-up still has not been announced for the dates, we do know a couple of things:
1. After a whole bunch of legal battling back and forth, it will once again take place at the LA Memorial Coliseum
2. The official dates that it will take place this year are June 24th and 25th (Friday & Saturday)
What great acts can we expect? What unexpected surprises and appearances will we see this year? Only time will tell... but for now, we have a wish list of people we would like to see show up:
5 acts we would like to see at this year's EDC:
And that's it! What do you guys think? Are there any others you would like to see? Post in the comments below. Let's get ready for EDC!!
