Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) Mexico took place this past weekend and expanded to a three-day event for the very first time. That meant more big name DJs than ever before for EDC’s seventh edition in Mexico City.
The lineup was stacked with artists across all genres including Carl Cox, David Guetta, Deorro, Diplo, Don Diablo, Tiësto, Madeon (live set), and Headhunterz B2B Yellow Claw. On top of that, it had some notable artists that are not playing the marquee EDC Las Vegas—Armin van Buuren, Deorro and Mariana BO.
EDC Mexico had nine stages, just one short of what is planned for EDC Las Vegas. Mexico got kineticFIELD, circuitGROUNDS, neonGARDEN, wasteLAND and stereoBLOOM, just like Vegas. However, the stages were smaller in scale, particularly kineticFIELD. Mexico had not one, but two art car stages: boomboxARTCAR and wideawakeARTCAR. Also, unlike Las Vegas, Mexico had bionicJUNGLE and dos EQUIS STAGE with local talent.
After day two, Insomniac founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella wrote on social media “GRACIAS” for the “insane energy.”
Over the past year, Insomniac has amplified EDC not only in Vegas but elsewhere. Last November, EDC Orlando grew from two to three days for the first time ever.
For anyone who missed EDC Mexico or wants to relive it, some of the biggest acts are already online.
