Are you ready to experience all that Camp EDC has to offer this year during EDC Las Vegas? Stay in the know with all the essential info!


After the debut of Camp EDC that made us feel even more at home at EDC Las Vegas last year, the excitement for the upcoming edition has reached an all-time high as we count down the days for our return trip. This year, some changes to the layout have been announced along with some new experiences we can’t wait to check out on The Mesa.

Adding to the fun will be some special sets that only campers can catch this year. These include the Thursday night Kick-Off Party that will bring FISHER and friends to the stage, along with takeovers by Insomniac Records, HARD Recs, and Bassrush each day for some pool action. The party doesn’t stop when EDCLV ends either, as there will be some sweet after parties to keep you dancing until your feet fall off.

To help get you prepped ahead of your trip, we’ve compiled all the information that you’ll need to know before making the trek to Camp EDC. Make sure to save those maps and set times and don’t forget to bring your flip flops and a towel!

Don’t forget that if you’ll be utilizing a power option with RV Camping you WILL need a 50′ extension cable. Grab yours on Amazon and take a look at our other Camping Essentials!
