There are still plenty of festivals left for music fans, with Electronic Music Festival in Detroit and Electric Forest in Rothbury, Mich. Of course who could forget the Electric Daisy Carnival, one of the largest electronic dance music festivals in the world.
It has recently been announced that Swedish House Mafia will be headlining the event this year. The trio leaked the news through a video that they posted on YouTube that when decoded read "SHM (… / …. / –) EDC(. / -.. /
The flagship event is moving this year from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. A tragic incident occured at the 2010 festival and caused the event to move outside of L.A.'s city limits and into the desert. There will also be new restrictions put in place to ensure that there is a not a repeat of last year's events. A 16-year-old girl died as a result of ecstacy use and there were a number of hospitalizations from a crowd stampede.
Electric Daisy is all set to take place on the weekend of June 24-26, debuting a new three-day format. For more information about the festival, check out the Insomniac website.
