watch out, Electric Daisy Carnival is coming to NYC

Electric Daisy Carnival

The Electric Daisy Carnival, the dance music festival which drew over 250,000 attendees to its three-day Las Vegas event last year, will hit New York on May 19-20, 2012, at a soon-to-be-announced location….

“I’m really excited to be working with Pacha to bring our touring experience of Electric Daisy Carnival to New York,” Pasquale Rotella, founder and CEO of Insomniac Events, told Billboard exclusively. “The entire Insomniac staff is looking forward to this upcoming EDC weekend on the East Coast.” -[Billboard]

Uh oh. Electric Daisy Carnival is coming to NYC. No word on the lineup yet for NYC, or for their flagship event in Las Vegas on June 8th – 10th, or for the third third festival they’re doing this year in Puerto Rico. 2011’s events featured appearances from The Crystal Method, Skream, Rusko, Diplo, Skrillex, Bloody Beetroots, MSTRKRFT and many, many others (you get the idea).

As you might know, much like the similarly themed HARD, EDC started in California (in 1997), but moved to Vegas last year. This NYC outing is their first venture to the East Coast.

With the announcement of EDC, NYC suddenly has a growing number festivals on our hands, many of which are electro-heavy, such as the similar Electric Zoo which happens on Randall’s Island over Labor Day Weekend (pics from 2011), and the slightly more mixed Governors Ball which is now on Radall’s Island too, and which is the same weekend as Orion in Atlantic City. Last summer also introduced Escape 2 NY to the Hamptons (which is planning to return). Hopefully these new fests fare better than 2011 Hamptons non-fest Music To Know.
