Now in its third year, Insomniac is bringing Electric Daisy Carnival back to New York City's MetLife Stadium this Memorial Day Weekend, May 24-25.
Headliners Bassnectar and Calvin Harris will be joined by Martin Garrix, Borgore, Boys Noize, Yellow Claw, Tiesto, Tommy Trash, Afrojack, Adventure Club, and DJ Snake, among others. Pasquale Rotella and his festival organizers have spread the love around equally between trap, trance, electro, house, and dubstep. It's great to see oddball acts like street bass empresario Starkey on the lineup, as well.
The announcement of this lineup comes hours after competing festival Mysteryland USA dropped its lineup for the very same weekend, but in upstate New York--Bethel to be exact--the site of the original Woodstock festival. With such an important weekend up for grabs, and EDC Chicago not taking place this year, it seems as though Live Nation and Insomniac are taking a direct attack approach. That being said, there are plenty of EDM fans to go around, and we're assured both events will be well attended.
