Electric Daisy Carnival takes place this weekend, at Downtown LA's Memorial Coliseum & Exposition Park, Friday June 26th 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. and Saturday June 27th 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. This is an all ages event.

Insomniac's events have made people dance through their bedtimes since 1993. Never have they made insomniacs out of 100,000. That’s the goal for this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival, their largest annual event. Seas of people will dance away their economic woes in what should be the largest electronic dance music festival this city has ever seen.

Dance music has traditionally found itself split into two camps: nightclubs and raves. Each having a different set of rules to accompany a different set of music. EDC unites both groups of nocturnal revelers (the difference: tight clothes vs. baggy clothes) at one of the city’s most historic venues: The Coliseum.

Mash-up-loving rock kids have spent the past few years dancing their assess off. At EDC there’ll be enough music to go around, and for the first time in the event’s history, it’ll take two days.
