Electric Daisy Carnival

When: June 17th-19th

Where: Las Vegas, Nevada

Why Go: Every region of the country now has an EDM festival or two, but EDC is still the granddaddy – the Tiësto in a sea of Datsiks and Yellow Claws. And if you're interested in raving to Tiësto, Datsik or Yellow Claw, this is likely the place. The lineup hasn't been announced yet, but usually it's easier to tally the DJs who aren't playing than the ones who are. Alternatively, go because you were one the few people who saw We Are Your Friends in theaters, and you've since been dying to recreate the scene where Zac Efron and Emily Ratajkowski run through EDC's swirling Lite-Brite of rides, music and people.

Must-See Acts: TBA
