Insomniac has announced the first phase of artists who will be playing EDC Week 2018 including Above & Beyond, Eric Prydz, Claude VonStroke, and more!


After announcing the return of EDC Week in a new Wednesday to Wednesday format earlier this year, Insomniac Events has finally unveiled who will be taking the stage at clubs across the strip this year! Hosted over May 16 -23 at a variety of dayclubs and nightclubs ranging from Drai’s to Marquee, and of course some shows at Hakkasan and Wet Republic, these parties are definitely some not to miss!

Announced today include shows from notable artists like Kaskade, Lost Frequencies, Eric Prydz, and more who will be serenading crowds throughout the week. Label and brand takeovers are also prevalent this year, with MK’s AREA10 and A-Trak’s Fools Gold leading the charge. Of course, you can’t forget about Insomniac’s own brand takeovers including the return of Factory 93’s DARKwater show with Jamie Jones and The Black Madonna, as well as parties hosted by Dreamstate and Bassrush as well.

Headliners looking to experience the EDC Week activities in their full form should stay tuned here and to EDCWeek.com for the latest news and updates for this year. More artists will be announced as we get closer to the week!
