Are you excited? We're so excited. We are ready to freak the funk out at EDC Las Vegas. And we hope our editors note that we said fuNk. We’re trying to be good so they don’t take away our EDC tickets. As long as we’re clutching them tighter than the outfit we’re wearing to the show – it’s gonna be sick yo – we’ll hook you up with some advanced info just to get your juices flowing. It’s a tease only, for now. But keep an owl’s eye out for more excitement as we get closer to EDC Las Vegas 2016.
Can you hear it? That beat in the air? They’re here! Tickets for EDC Las Vegas 2016 are now available directly from Insomniac. Get them quick. You never want to be that person who has to beg for a spare ticket because you waited too long. And you never want to have that moment when you collapse on to the ground in a state of disbelief because tickets sold out while you were nine hours deep into a trance binge. So buy your tickets soon. Then worry about which shoes give you the best dance to impressiveness ratio.
First off, pace yourself. There’s a lot to do and plenty of time to do it. You’ve also got plenty of time to prep. Try some smaller parties first. Build up to EDC. Go find a small robot octopus that shoots little balls of fire and dance around that for a half hour. It’s all about leveling.
The one other thing we want to tell you right away, other than stay hydrated, is stay energized. Energy drinks do not count. You’ll be walking, dancing, maybe even hanging off somebody while they try to remember how their life ever felt complete before they had you in their arms. You need calories to burn. Ideally, of course, you just shouldn’t take drugs. But we’re not naïve. Be safe and know your body’s requirements and limits.
You’re going to need a place to stay. We know that partying nonstop for three days sounds good in a Tumblr rant. But you’re not actually going to do it. And deep down you know that. Hell, we’re party goddesses and we only went non-stop for 52 hours at EDC 2015. Don’t compare yourself to us. If you’re looking for something right near the speedway then you’ve still got some time. Hurry and book a room today. Otherwise we know a guy who’s renting his tree fort on Airbnb.
Your best options are always on the Las Vegas Strip. Those silly people who aren’t into blaring EDM and rainbow miniskirts probably won’t be trying to book for that weekend, so you’ve got free reign for now. We can’t make assumptions about shuttle services just yet, but as long as you stay at a Strip or downtown property you’ll be sure to find transportation out to the festival grounds. Speaking of…
You can rent cars in advance. You could also just go out and buy a car and keep it in your garage until EDC. If you’re going to do that, could you buy us one too? We’ll be your BFFFEs. We’ve seen people trying to ride bicycles out to the fest. We don’t recommend that. But honestly, you’ve got some time to figure that out. What really important is getting to Vegas.
Airlines have some good deals when you book early. We have good deals all the time and you should totally just book a package with us. Not to self-promote, even though this is our website, you can book a package now and get a refund later if the price drops. It’s pretty great. Whatever you do, don’t wait too long to book your flight. Most people do it second after buying tickets. Be one of the smart ones who gets it all done early.
