LAS VEGAS (AP) - Up to 115,000 ravers are expected each night this weekend for a dusk-to-dawn sensory overload of electronic dance music, partying and mingling at a sprawling racing complex outside Las Vegas.
Electric Daisy Carnival organizers said Wednesday that all 345,000 available tickets have been sold for the event being held Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Founder and chief executive Pasquale Rotella likes to call festival fans the headline attraction at the nocturnal outdoor events.
The festival moved from Los Angeles after the 2010 death of a 15-year-old girl and the arrest of 114 people on misconduct, drug and other charges.
This year's lineup includes more than 200 top deejays pumping out music from seven stages - plus musical acts, artists, fireworks and a big Ferris wheel.
