Staying on-site for EDC Las Vegas at Camp EDC this year? Get all the essential info including what to bring, the pool party set times, and more!

One of the best experiences that EDC Las Vegas has offered for headliners over the past few editions is the ability to stay on-site at Camp EDC. Each year, Insomniac brings plenty of artificial turf, shade structures, pools, and plenty more to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway as they transform the asphalt parking lots into a slice of paradise for ravers who are bringing RVs or staying in the Moon Glow or Desert Rose Tents.

Of course, a place to sleep isn’t the only thing that Insomniac brings to Camp EDC each year as there is plenty to do during the day as well at The Mesa. This includes everything from vendors selling food and merch to a Ferris Wheel and splash ride, along with other activities like roller disco, arts and crafts, yoga, and more. Additionally, Camp EDC hosts a Thursday Night Kick-Off Party to get everyone in a groove, while also hosting pool parties each day to keep the party rolling along while you splash away with your friends under the sun.
