New York’s Electric Daisy Carnival recently announced the full lineup for their Memorial Day Weekend fest at MetLife Stadium. The lineup includes the best DJs both seasoned and new to the scene, domestic and international. EDM veterans like Afrojack, Calvin Harris, and Steve Angello will be on the 1s and 2s along with newcomers like Martin Garrix, 3Lau and Andrew Rayel, and dozens of DJs set to get crowds pumped this May.
This year EDC wants ravers to know that “You are the headliner,” encouraging body paint, wild costumes, kandi bracelets, and the like. Another new detail this year to take note of is the festival’s “zero-tolerance” drug policy which is said to include “TSA style pat-downs” at entry gates. This is likely a response to the two deaths and 31 arrests at Randall Island’s Electric Zoo last year, along with reports nationwide and beyond of drug abuse at EDM festivals. The Electric Daisy Carnival will also feature numerous interactive environments throughout the space, as well as theatrical productions, bars, free water stations, ATMs, and 5 stages during the two-day super party.
The event is likely to be a sultry sweatfest for the ages, filled to the brim with ravers from all over the tri-state area and beyond. After a long, snowy winter, ravers are anxious to get back outdoors and see the electric daisies in full bloom. Here’s EDC New York’s lineup, a star-studded roster for the kandi-coated and the scantily clad:
