Electric Daisy Carnival Review - Day 3

Las Vegas Motor Speedway, 10/06/12

Whereas Saturday’s weather-induced shut-down could have had a negative effect on the atmosphere of the festival, it instead seem to install an even greater sense of fun-seeking from Sunday’s crowd, eager to get as much out of the EDC’s final evening as they could.


The organisers also rose to the challenge, with even more fireworks and a rejigged line-up going some way to make up for the loss of Saturday’s final hours.

Diplo’s Major Lazer played a great jump-up set at the neonGARDEN, while over on the main stage David Guetta, easily the planet’s biggest commercial DJ at present, confirmed his status as with a back-to-back set of pop and electro bangers that was unashamedly fun.

The rescheduled AVICII and Armin van Buuren kept up the stadium dance hugeness, as Insomniac unleashed yet more fireworks and breath-taking pyrotechnics, while in the cosmicMEADOW Carl Cox brought his hard tech set to a suitably theatrical finish with a deluge of confetti.

Weather aside, quite how Insomniac will be able to top this year’s EDC waits to be seen, but we can’t wait for next summer to see what they come up with.
