Pasquale has teased and teased the big announcement… well here it is:
Here’s the big news! After a lot of energy, passion and hard work, I want to personally present to you EDC Las Vegas 2018. New hours, new stages, and new dates (May 18–20) with better weather and camping! That’s right—campsites, RVs, sound camps, and more—for the first time ever at EDC Las Vegas. Wake up and walk in.
Over the past 10 years, average high temps on this weekend in May have been 90, and the lows have been 64. This means we can extend our hours and create an opening ceremony on the cosmicMEADOW lawn, featuring extended sets from different artists each day. One stage, one vibe—all before the rest of the experience turns on. Not only will it give people a chance to vibe out before sunset, but the early arrivals will help the flow in and out of the Speedway.
Shuttle operations will be handed over to an independent company that specializes in the largest music and sporting events in the country. This is what they do, and they do it better than anyone else, year over year. Also new for 2018, construction in the immediate area of the Speedway will finally be complete. In 2017, we had just two lanes. EDC Las Vegas 2018 will have three lanes plus pull-offs. There will be traffic in and out of the festival, but if you want a one-and-done journey to the Speedway, just camp out.
We’ll be rolling out more details in the coming weeks, and I’ll be personally answering your questions live on my Instagram. Tickets and camping passes go on sale at the end of September, but hotels are available now on our website with no markup.
EDC Las Vegas 2018 is going to be an amazing new adventure, and I can’t wait to see you there!

For the first time in history, the 2018 installment of the festival will offer a fully immersive camping program conveniently situated right next to the Speedway where the following options and amenities are available:

- Rent an air-conditioned Premier tent complete with dust-control canvas walls, comfortable artificial grass, twin or queen-sized beds, linens, pillows, towels, tables, chairs, and lights for up to two or four attendees, max.
- Bring your own RV and hook it up to the pre-arranged power on-site.

The new camping areas will eliminate vehicle traffic for campers, offering an easy commute and convenient ins and outs of the festival each day. At the center of the campgrounds, fans can enjoy plenty of shade, seating, water, food and beverage vendors, a general store, activities and more. A neighboring area will allow for the creation of Sound Camps where Headliners can build out their own themed environments.
EDC Las Vegas 2018 will return to Las Vegas Motor Speedway with unparalleled access to the festival grounds for attendees who arrive at the venue early. The iconic cosmicMEADOW lawn will host opening ceremonies before the gates officially open each day; giving fans a chance to catch extended sets and cool down before the festivities begin. Early Owl three-day general admission passes start at $325 while VIP three-day passes start at $699, both before taxes and fees. Fans who miss out on Early Owl pricing will have the opportunity to purchase the newly added Wise Owl tier, priced at $340 plus taxes and fees for three-day general admission passes. For those that wait to purchase their EDC Las Vegas 2018 tickets, a Later Owl tier will be available for $355 plus taxes and fees. Headliners will have affordable layaway options for all ticket types, with additional details coming soon.
