Lace up these dance shoes: Electric Daisy Carnival is officially on as planned.
One of the first major music festivals to take place since the coronavirus outbreak, the three-day electronic dance marathon takes place as scheduled on 21-23. May at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after previously being exposed twice last year.
“We are moving forward as planned and will work closely with local and government officials to make the show as safe as possible,” EDC founder Pasquale Rotella wrote in an Instagram post with news. “You can expect the full EDC experience with no details spared.”
There will be a number of new security measures to combat any COVID-19 concerns.
In a 37-page proposal submitted to the Nevada Department of Business and Industry, Rotella outlined a series of measures aimed at keeping coronavirus at bay.
Each participant and employee will need to download a mobile app before entering, which allows the user to link either their vaccination journal or laboratory test results to demonstrate that they have been vaccinated or tested negative for COVID-1
Masks will be applied and the use of COVID-19 fragrance detection dogs will be considered, among other things, for safety regulations.
The lineup will be announced soon, and anyone with tickets who can’t attend can transfer their passports to next year’s festival.
Organizer organizers expect 180,000 participants per night, representing 90 percent of their approved capacity of 200,000 per day.
“We are ready to spread the wings and embrace our community, which we miss so much,” Rotella wrote. “We know there may be challenges ahead of us that we accept and do our best to overcome.”
