The first night of EDC Las Vegas 2019 was filled with some monumental sets, epic moments, and plenty of exploring!


Over the past week, Headliners from all over the world descended upon the city of Las Vegas for one of the biggest parties on the planet: Electric Daisy Carnival. Last night was the culmination of months of preparation and you could truly feel the (kinetic) energy in the air as EDC Las Vegas got underway.

Attendees who were staying at Camp EDC were lucky as those who were driving or shuttling did experience some delays in getting to the venue. We started our EDC Las Vegas experience off with Bill Nye the Science Guy who took some time to teach everyone at the Opening Ceremony about climate change, space and also reminded us that we are one race of humans who all share this planet.

From there, we were off to the races and headed over to the circuitGROUNDS to catch i_o open the festival with some epic originals and remixes. House and techno dominated our schedule for Friday as we also caught performances by ZHU as Blacklizt, Eric Prydz, deadmau5, and a solid b2b between Mason Maynard and Eli Brown among plenty others. Of course, we couldn’t pass up a once-in-a-lifetime b2b featuring dubstep legends Skream and Rusko.

Other highlights included exploring Downtown EDC which was full of hidden surprises, checking out the new art installations that have been added this year, and dancing to some art car sets. Oh, and that first-night fireworks display was also absolutely stunning so we hope you caught it!

There is plenty more in store to explore over the next two days, so stay tuned for the latest updates on all things EDCLV!
