EDC Las Vegas Announces Line-Up, Includes Kaskade, DJ Snake and The Chainsmokers
EDC Las Vegas has announced its line-up, which includes Kaskade, DJ Snake and The Chainsmokers.
The festival is additionally celebrating its 20th anniversary and will run June 17-19. Other acts include Alesso, Marshmello, Martin Garrix, Afrojack and Knife Party.
While it wasn’t official, the acts were initially revealed by Pasquale Rotella, the founder of Insomniac, on a Night Owl Radio episode at Sirius XM’s Electric Area this past Friday (May 20).
EDC Las Vegas has an impressive roster this year and will additionally feature Zedd, Above & Beyond, Dada Life, Loco Dice, Datsik, Hannah Wants, Excision, Hardwell, Tyco, What So Not and a few more surprises for the 20th anniversary that have yet to be revealed.
“A milestone anniversary like this deserves a very special line-up, and we’ve got an incredible mix of top talent, on-the-rise names, old-school legends, and artists who have never played the festival before,” Rotella said in a statement released to Billboard. “We’ll also be introducing extended set times that will allow DJs to really take our Headliners on a journey -- and of course some specially curated 20th anniversary surprises that people will remember for years to come.”
While all general admission passes have already sold out, VIP tickets are still available and can be found on the official website.
To reduce the negative press that EDM festivals often receive in the United States, Insomniac hired Beacon Economics back in February to release a new study on the financial impact of EDC Las Vegas. Once the numbers were crunched it was found that the three day festival had grossed $1.3 billion in the past five years from 1.7 million people.
