EDC Las Vegas 2019 Theme Revealed: Kinetic Energy
The festival partnered with a very famous scientist for the announcement

Insomniac Events flagship festival, Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, is set to take place in two months at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and as we inch closer to the date, more and more information is being revealed about this year’s event.

Over the years, North America’s largest electronic dance festival has converted its mainstage (KineticFIELD) and used it as a manifestation for the theme of the event. Last year’s theme was centered around love (KineticLOVE), mother earth (KineticGAIA) took over the year before that and this year, attendees will literally partake in the theme centered around energy.

KineticENERGY will be an electrifying experience that will unite more than 400,000 guests through the vibration of movement and energy all three days.

The announcement was made by Insomniac CEO and Founder, Pasquale Rotella, as well as one of the most beloved scientists, pop culture icon Bill Nye The Science Guy.

In addition to his appearance in the video, Bill Nye will officially kick off the 2019 edition of EDC Las Vegas as host of the Opening Ceremony on Friday, May 17, amplifying his message of kinetic energy and positive vibes to thousands of Headliners at the cosmicMEADOW stage.

The 23rd edition of Electric Daisy Carnival takes place May 17, 18, and 19 from dusk till dawn at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Tickets and camping packages are available HERE.

The track, which premiered last weekend at A State of Trance 900 in The Netherlands, is years in the making. In a press release, Above & Beyond stated that the track came together organically, saying “…Having shared many stages with Armin, it was great to finally get in a studio together to swap ideas…”
