Electric Daisy Carnival 2014
by Philip Sherburne | May 28, 2014
Insomniac has yet to announce the lineup for Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, the EDM behemoth's flagship event. But last week's EDC New York offers some clues as to some of the faces attendees (or "headliners," in the parlance of Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella) are likely to see on stage: heavy-hitting jocks like Hardwell, Tiësto and Martin Garrix; dance-pop crossover types like Krewella, Cash Cash and Calvin Harris; trance mainstays like Markus Schulz and Ferry Corsten (in this case, in their New World Punx guise); and trap newcomers like France's DJ Snake. At EDC New York, one detail in particular stood out: the high concentration of house and techno DJs of a nominally "underground" stripe, including names like Art Department, Loco Dice, Tale of Us and Claude VonStroke. Will EDC Las Vegas follow suit? We've put together a playlist highlighting EDC New York's biggest names; look out for a good number of them in the desert June 20 through 22, when the festival comes to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
