Electric Daisy Carnival, North America’s largest dance music festival, is approaching very soon. The electronic music extravangaza, better known by its initials “EDC”, is going to celebrate its 10 years in Las Vegas. For many Electric Daisy Carnival attendees in the past, especially when the festival was located in Los Angeles, the main reason for attending the festival is to witness their favorite DJs produce sets “under the Electric Sky”. To emphasize, millions of EDM fans on Thursday, Feb. 20, 2020 were excited as that date is when they get to find out which artist will perform at the festival. At 6 pm EST on Feb. 20, Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella announced the lineup of artists for Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas 2020 on his Night Owl Radio podcast.
On the podcast, he discussed the nine stages that will be present at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the annual location of EDC Vegas 2020. Each stage had a mix that contained tracks of DJs confirmed to perform at those stages. Here is the lineup of artists for each stage at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas 2020. It should note that the lineup may not be 100% correct. This lineup does not contain all of the artist names, especially since the full lineup will be revealed by Insomniac later today at 2 pm EST. Here are some of the artists who will perform at each stage of Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas 2020. Another thing to hope for is that the winds in Las Vegas during EDC Weekend this year won’t be too strong like last year.
