Eat. Sleep. EDC. Repeat

As festival season comes to a close, one of its most well-known stops is not far from home with EDC Orlando, which just announced its Nov. 6 and 7 lineup — featuring big name EDM artist Bassnectar, Calvin Harris, Tiësto, DJ Snake and more.

EDC, or Electric Daisy Carnival, is a neon, musical escape where your wildest dreams come to life. The carnival is set up in a way that showcases the coexisting relationships between nature and technology, from beautiful gardens to bright, techno beats.

Wander through the three main stages — kineticFIELD, circuitGROUNDS and neonGARDEN — and ride the iconic EDC Ferris wheel, among other classic carnival favorites, to your hearts content.

Artist DJ Snake has become regular news in the EDM world, recently announcing his debut as a headliner for Ultra Chile 2015, alongside Axwell & Ingrosso and Knife Party. Fellow DJ Calvin Harris is currently promoting the recent release of his Deep House single, “How Deep Is Your Love,” featuring Disciples. He also performed in Glasgow before more than 35,000 fans in late August, alongside Ellie Goulding, John Newman and others.
