Electric Daisy Carnival Orlando is one of the two massive EDC fests held in the states — this one’s in Florida, the other in Vegas. It’s basically an oversized EDM playground for the young at heart who like to get a little crazy. This music festival is known for unabashedly in-your-face electronic music, sweaty dance floors and party drugs. While it’s a super well-known and popular EDM event that emphasizes love and positivity in its marketing, we wouldn’t say it’s for the faint of heart.
At Electric Daisy Carnival Orlando, otherwise known as EDC Orlando, the psychedelia of nature unites with a technological trip. Giant sculptures of owls and a woman who looks like she sprouted from a meadow of wildflowers is juxtaposed against backdrops of high-tech visual art and laser-filled skies.
This year’s lineup includes Alison Wonderland, Kaskade, Paul Van Dyk, Deadmau5 (sunset set), Alesso (sunset set), Riot Ten, Sara Benyo, Afrojack, Armin Van Buuren, Azzecca, Carola, Dillon Francis B2B Valentino Khan and many more. (Full lineup below.)
One of the things that makes Electric Daisy Carnival Orlando special: the stages are over-the-top epic. The main stage, called KineticFIELD, is a giant wooden structure of an owl that looks like it’s summoning you into another realm and you’re a little nervous about it but you also can’t resist. The NeonGARDEN is a giant indoor dome-like structure that projects hazy red and purple lighting. And the steampunk-inspired Wide Awake Art Car is equipped with a Function One sound system, a mechanical owl, and multiple fire cannons.
