Electric Daisy Carnival

We're not sure if Insomniac planned for the Southern California institution known as the Electric Daisy Carnival to grow into the worldwide behemoth that it's become, but their inventiveness and desire to push EDM past the limit has paid off well. Due to issues in California, Las Vegas is now the premier city of the Electric Daisy Carnival, with over 300,000 people turning up for the 2012 edition, but if you factor in the EDCs that took place in London, Chicago, New York, and Texas in 2013, their expansion is only going to continue in the near future. When you factor in the alliance that Insomniac has forged with Live Nation, there's no telling what the future of the EDC will look like.

    Unlike most people I’ve been to 4, 3 and 2.
    Sonar is completely different to a 3 day fesitval so can’t really compare.
    When it comes to Tomorrowland vs Ultra there really is no contest, Tomorrowland is by far and away the best 3 days dance festival in the world.

    Can you tell us what elements you chose about each festival that determine the word “Best??” Location? Price? Acts? Theme? Popularity? Why are THESE the best? Writing 101: Make your point and prove it.
