Lace up those dancing shoes – the Electric Daisy Carnival officially kicks off as scheduled.
One of the first major music festivals to take place since the coronavirus outbreak, the three-day electronic dance music marathon will take place as planned May 21-23 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after having been postponed twice last year.
“We are moving forward as planned and will work closely with state and local officials to make the program as safe as possible,” EDC founder Pasquale Rotella wrote in an Instagram post breaking the news. “You can look forward to the complete EDC experience without skimping on the details.”
However, there will be a number of new security measures to combat any potential COVID-19 problems.
In a 37-page proposal submitted to the Nevada Department of Business and Industry, Rotella outlined a series of measures aimed at keeping the coronavirus at bay.
All attendees and staff members will need to download a health pass mobile app before entering, which will allow the user to link their vaccination record or lab test results to prove they have been vaccinated or tested negative. COVID-19 test.
Masks will be mandatory and the use of COVID-19 odor detection dogs, among other safety provisions, is being considered.
The lineup will be announced soon, and anyone with tickets who cannot attend can transfer their passes to next year’s festival.
Organizers of the event expect 180,000 attendees each night, representing 90 percent of its approved capacity of 200,000 per day.
“We are ready to spread our wings and embrace our community that we miss so much,” wrote Rotella. “We know there may be challenges in front of us, which we accept and do what we can to overcome.”
