Friday-Saturday, Nov. 9-10 – Electric Daisy Carnival
with Armin van Buuren, Afrojack, Tiësto, Richie Hawtin, Bassnectar, Victor Calderone, DJ Icey and dozens more
287 S. Tampa Ave.
Sometimes Orlando hosts successful music festivals that actually live up to the hype and leave people satisfied. For a beat-heavier taste of what Orlando Calling could have been, head to Insomniac Events’ Electric Daisy Carnival this weekend. Armin van Buuren, the newly crowned five-time world’s No. 1 DJ, according to DJ Mag readers, descends on Tinker Field with an all-star lineup of talent, not to mention art displays, carnival rides, lasers and the “YOU,” the most important headliner of all. EDC is well-known for its intense atmosphere – many attendees arrive in costume and often become part of the show. If you’ve never been to EDC and wonder what the fuss is about, get your feet wet and experience the spectacle. – Ed Chapkowski
