Over the last two weeks Insomniac has worked around the clock transforming the Las Vegas Motor Speedway into a 360-degree audiovisual carnival experience for the 16th Annual Electric Daisy Carnival. For the debut evening, more than 70 DJs played across seven stages from dusk until dawn, including Kaskade, Sebastian Ingrosso, Benny Benassi, Afrojack, Above & Beyond and Knife Party, surrounded by more than 500 theatrical performers, fire twirlers, aerialists, dancers and stilt walkers, amid a landscape dotted with full sized carnival rides and large-scale interactive art.

The 1,000-acre complex will remain a fully immersive audiovisual adventure for the next two nights with dynamic art, special effects and décor creating interactive environments along with state-of-the-art lighting and sound production and a 15-minute pyrotechnics display. Based on ticket sales, Insomniac estimated that approximately 115,000 attendees experienced the first of EDC’s three nights.

The festival returns tonight with doors opening at 7 p.m. This evening will again be highlighted with special moments including Red Bull skydivers and an exclusive collaboration between Steve Aoki and Blue Man Group.
