For the first time, Electric Daisy Carnival will feature a campsite

If camp was your favorite part of summer as a kid, sorry to disappoint you. Camp EDC will be nothing like that.

EDC 2018

For the first time ever, the 22nd-annual Electric Daisy Carnival will offer on-site camping, and it won’t be your average sleep-in-your-store-bought-tent and go-days-without-showering outdoor experience, like the one I had roughing it at Coachella a decade ago. EDC campers will have access to air-conditioned ShiftPod tents (and an RV option), along with a camp center called the Mesa that will feature activities like daytime pool parties, yoga and exercise classes, a speaker series, go-kart racing, sound healing, hula-hoop classes, rave aerobics, a barber shop, food trucks, charging stations and more. And of course, the Thursday-night kickoff party will also feature special DJ guest sets, because EDC, duh.

If you scored Camp EDC tickets before they sold out on May 2, make sure to carry your ID on you at all times, as law enforcement might randomly card campers seen drinking alcohol—and keep in mind that hard liquor, drugs, glass bottles and LED gloves are prohibited.
