The lineup for this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Vegas is here — well, almost all of it. MTV reports that the first (pretty stacked) batch of performers will include Avicii, Afrojack, Tiësto, Benny Benassi, Knife Party, and everyone’s favorite mandroid David Guetta. And that’s just the first announcement.
The festival will take place June 8-10 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and festival organizers expect about 300,000 people will attend, with a potential additional 30,000 if the fire department caves on its capacity restrictions. If the guy announcing the lineup in the video below seems like he’s got a lot on his mind, it’s because he does, but apparently a laundry list of corruption charges isn’t enough to keep the EDC train from rolling on (sorry, bad Madonna joke!). The announced artists are listed below. Maybe the New York crowd will be as lucky? Tickets are still available.
EDC 2012 Lineup (So Far):
