The Los Angeles based Electric Daisy Carnival is an annual wet dream for fans of electronica and house. Each year, hundreds of thousands take over Exposition Park and the L.A. Coliseum for a weekend featuring the genres’ biggest artists. In 2009, for example, some 140,000 — that’s a record by the way — conjugated to witness the likes of Groove Armada, Thievery Corporation, ATB, and Paul Oakenfold among others.
For 2010, organizers have once again round together quite the overwhelming bill. Deadmau5, Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Swedish House Mafia, and Benny Benassi top the festivities, while noteworthy acts like Moby (DJ Set), Kaskade, Basement Jaxx (DJ Set), Infected Mushroom, Groove Armada (DJ Set), Sasha, DJ Z-Trip, Boys Noize, and the Black Eyed Peas’ Will.i.am are also set to perform.
Other scheduled acts include MSTRKRFT, Travis Barker & A-Trak, Steve Aoki, Spank Rock, Felix Cartal, Wolfgang Gartner, Duck Sauce, Armand van Helden, Dada Life, Christopher Lawrence, Claude von Stroke, Dieselboy, Evol Intent, Xample, and Andy C. A full list of confirmed acts can be found here; day-by-day schedule here.
Electric Daisy Carnival 2010 takes place from June 25-26. General admission tickets for Friday and Saturday (priced at $65 and $75 respectively), two-day passes ($129), and VIP packages are now available.
