Insomniac returned to the Big Apple this weekend for the 2nd annual Electric Daisy Carnival in New York. Held at Citi Field for the first time, approximately 90,000 fans gathered on Friday and Saturday, to enjoy DJ performances, theatrical acts, art installations, carnival rides, and firework displays. With five stages and state-of-the-art sound and lighting production, DJs including Calvin Harris, Afrojack, Porter Robinson, Eric Prydz, La Roux, and ATB took over the Citi Field parking lot.

We've sorted through thousands of photos to give you a chance to live, or re-live, the madness. More»
If you have tickets for Electric Daisy Carnival this weekend, you're probably already set. Your bags are packed. You've studied the set schedule.

So who's going to Las Vegas this weekend to get down to some electronic dance music?

And when we say "everyone," that's really not much of an exaggeration. Check out the just-released full set schedule and start your stage-hopping plans now! More»

It's not that we have a general distaste for the entire genre, we just feel that as with pretty much everything else in life, there is a time and a place for dubstep and it sure as hell is not in a Britney Spears song. But a pre- Electric Daisy Carnival show put on by Insomniac and headlined by dub pioneer Rusko at the Hollywood Palladium? That's precisely a dubstep-appropriate scenario we are down for along with the thousands of filthy beat-loving kids at Friday night's show. More»
