    Electric Daisy Carnival to Rock NYC Region Over Memorial Day Weekend - We have details

    It's never too early to start planning for the kick off of summer aka Memorial Day, especially when it's as awesome of a fest as the Electric Daisy Carnival.

    Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), New York will return to the Tri-State area for two days during Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 24 and Sunday, May 25, 2014. This is the festival's third year in the New York area, and the second time that the event will be held at MetLife Stadium – home to two New York NFL teams. That'd be the Jets and the (New York Football) Giants.

    The weekend festival will be a transformative celebration of music and art, featuring multiple stages, full-scale carnival rides and attractions, dozens of roaming theatrical performers, and a pyrotechnic display rivaling the 4th of July. As always, Insomniac will seek to raise the bar for large-scale live events, revealing production elements and large-scale installation artwork specifically tailored for the New York edition of the world's largest touring dance music cultural event: EDC.

    So it'll be like Fourth of July on Memorial Day! Wowza!

    "MetLife Stadium and the surrounding grounds offer a massive blank canvas that allows us to take our production to an entirely new level in New York," said Insomniac Founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella, one of the event's producers. "Our goal is to create something that's more than just a music festival – we want to transform MetLife Stadium into a piece of living art. As part of that effort, our giant, 40-foot-tall animatronic Owl, which debuted during EDC Las Vegas 2013, will make its first ever appearance on the East Coast. Over the coming months there will be even more surprises to share."

    The festival's close proximity to ample, reliable transportation, along with a wide array of hotel accommodations, allows fans easy and comfortable access to and from the show. EDC New York also gives fans the opportunity to travel to a part of the country that includes some of the most popular and historic destinations in the world, including the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty.

    Good times ahead with EDC. Keep your eyes trained on EDC's NYC page
