Your quarantine is about to get a lot more hype, because a virtual rave like no other is coming to your screens this weekend. If you’ve been sitting bored in the house and looking for an excuse to party, this is it.
Since the tenth edition of the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas has been postponed to October 2-4, the quarantine version will be bringing today’s sickest artists and beats to the virtual sky. This is just one of the can’t-miss events that are being featured in the Launchtrip+ virtual calendar.
The EDC Las Vegas Virtual Rave-A-Thon will take place kicked off on Friday and takes place all weekend until May 17 from 5 PM to 2 AM daily. Hosted by Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella, the event will feature live and original sets across multiple stages broadcast on Insomniac TV.
The livestream features many of the same performers that were scheduled to be at the original event, including resident Las Vegas DJs David Guetta, Kaskade, Duke Dumont, Afrojack, Flosstradamus, and Oliver Heldens, as well as artists that are new to the virtual rave scene such as Seven Lions, Vini Vinci, and a special set by NGHTMRE b2b Ghastly.
The festival will mark the launch of Rave Recovery, a relief fund for dance music fans that have been impacted by COVID-19. A partnership between Insomniac and In Place of War, Rave Recovery aims to connect and support EDM enthusiasts and give back to the community during this time when it’s not yet possible to reunite on the dance floor. Donations can be made here.
So turn up the volume, turn your living room, your bed room or maybe even your kitchen into a dance floor, and get ready to get lost in the music. The full EDC Las Vegas Virtual Rave-A-Thon line-up is below:
