EDC Las Vegas and EDC Week 2013 Announced!

Posted: November 1st, 2012 2:28PM

EDC returns to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for its 17th annual celebration on June 21, 22 and 23, 2013. EDC Week also returns to Las Vegas for an entire week of nightclub and dayclub events, a music conference, and other special surprises spanning the week from June 18 – June 25, 2013.

With more than 320,000 fans gathering under the desert sky this past summer, EDC claimed the title of North America’s largest music festival of any genre. EDC sold out weeks in advance of the 16th annual event, with attendance reaching 115,000 fans in a single night.  

“This summer’s EDC was Insomniac’s largest attended festival to date, creating a unique atmosphere to inspire and entertain the fans,” said Pasquale Rotella, founder and CEO of Insomniac.  “As always, we have listened to our fans and taken in their feedback to enhance the EDC experience in 2013.”

Insomniac transformed the 1,000-acre complex into a fully immersive audiovisual adventure with more than 150 musical acts, 500 theatrical performers and 12 large-scale interactive and flame-wielding art installations, along with state-of-the-art lighting and sound production and nightly pyrotechnics displays. This was its first year as a Signature Las Vegas Event. 

“Our fans’ safety and overall experience is most important to me,” said Rotella. “We are working diligently with the city, the Speedway and our internal team to improve traffic and other concerns in order to make next year’s festival the best in Insomniac history.”

Fan and artist shuttles as well as taxis to and from the Las Vegas Motor Speedway will have a newly dedicated route in 2013 to minimize the impact on individual traffic. The parking staff has been increased in order to move and park cars more quickly in and out of the lots, and there will be additional lanes in and out of the event. Additional adjustments to enhance the guest experience and relieve transportation congestion outside of the event are already being planned and tested for implementation during the 2013 festival.

Insomniac will hold a special limited pre-sale on November 7 at 12 p.m. Pacific Time, with three-day General Admission tickets available at $199, then $259, and three-day VIP tickets available at $450, until allotments run out. Tickets for EDC Vegas 2013 officially go on sale on January 9, 2013 at 12 p.m. Pacific Time, with pricing to be announced in the coming weeks. A layaway pricing option will again be available during both on-sales, except at the lowest priced ticket tier. Single day tickets will not be available for this three-day experience.

Exclusive hotel deals are available now and travel packages will be available once tickets go on sale at and Hotel deals and shuttle passes will continue to be available after the early bird tickets sell out. Travel packages are only available while tickets are on sale and include hotel, three day shuttle pass and a ticket to EDC.

Details regarding the full EDC Week schedule of events, as well as the return of the highly acclaimed EDMbiz Conference, will be announced in the upcoming months.
