|Las Vegas Motor Speedway|
What does this mean for us?
It means that what seemed like a dismal end of an era for EDC in LA has only spawned the beginning of something that has the possibility of being far greater than its previous predecessors ever could be. The extensive capacity, the Las Vegas 24 hour party schedule (that is actually legal), and Insomniac's aggressive tactics to book top notch DJ's for the new EDC (I'm readily assuming), we have the recipe for a weekend we will never forget.
However, this also means transportation complicates things a bit. Sam Boyd Stadium of UNLV was only 9 miles away from the strip. The motor speedway is now roughly 17 miles away from the strip (where I'm assuming a big chunk of the visiting population will stay). This makes for a pricey cab ride, a pricey limo ride, or a risky inebriated drive at the end of the night (be sure to have a DD!). I can only hope that shuttles are arranged from landmark areas around the city of Las Vegas. Insomniac still has quite a bit of work today.
In short, I can tell this EDC will be one for the books. And if done right, has the potential to be the greatest electronic music event this side of the world. Viva Las Vegas!
