The Las Vegas Electric Daisy Flower Carnival is set to be the first major US festival to take place since the start of the coronavirus pandemic after organizers confirmed the festival’s return next month.
The EDM Festival will return to Sin City from May 21-23, although it is not yet confirmed whether the event will operate at a reduced capacity.
“We are moving forward as planned and will be working closely with local and state officials to make the show as safe as possible,” said Pasquale Rotella, founder of EDC’s Insomniac Events.
“You can expect the full EDC experience with no details spared, from the festival grounds to the music, stages, art, performers, artists & fireworks!”
Previous editions of Electric Daisy Carnival have drawn more than 120,000 attendees, while the state of Nevada is currently under a statewide mask and a social distancing mandate that is likely to be in effect when the festival takes place next month.
The confirmation of the event came after it was confirmed that Bonnaroo would return this September with a formation led by Foo Fighters, Megan Thee Stallion, Lizzo, Tame Impala, Tyler, The Creator, and Lana Del Rey.
The festival – which will celebrate its 20th anniversary in Manchester, Tennessee – will run from September 2 to 5.
