Get a head start on the fun and neon lights: The LINQ offers a convenient EDC shuttle stop, complete with live DJ spun music, in its parking lot behind the High Roller. Show your EDC stub and get $10 off your ride (and a free drink)! Photo by Denise Truscello.

Calling all Electric Daisy Carnival peeps: The LINQ is Caesars Entertainment’s official shuttle pick-up location for this year’s Las Vegas EDC festival, June 20-22. If you choose The LINQ as your prime pick-up spot, you’ve made a fine choice. Besides having marvelous views of the 550-foot-tall High Roller, this is the prime spot to pre-celebrate your EDC experience.

This year’s line-up is going to be bananas. Not only will EDC host Las Vegas nightlife favorites like Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki and Alesso, you’ll also catch other hot artists like Chromeo, Diplo,  Gareth Emery, Two Fresh and The Glitch Mob.

Here’s a rundown of what to expect:

  • Catch a sunset ride on The High Roller and admire the breathtaking, glittering lights of the Las Vegas Strip. Through Monday, get $10 off  and a free drink by presenting your EDC ticket stub. Show your stub and get your High Roller tickets at any Caesars Entertainment property’s resort box office (except Caesars Palace), the High Roller guest services window or from one of the roaming High Roller ticket vendors.
  • Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas kicks off EDC weekend Thursday, June 19 with Bassrush Massive, consisting of Flosstradamus, Big Gigantic, Bro Safari, Dirtyphonics, Ed Rush & Optical and Fury + MC Dino. Show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets range from $22-44.
  •  Listen to live DJ music from two different booths: One in front by TAG (an innovative bar and lounge) and Squeeze (a juice bar); the other in back parking lot by shuttle stop. DJs will spin 6 p.m. – midnight, June 20-22.
  •  Presented by Insomniac, EDC will have an official merch table in the parking lot. Buy everything from festival T-shirts to canteen-style bottles. (Note: There will be complimentary water stations throughout the festival to fill your container.)
  •  There will also be hawkers selling festival-related gear along with Sky Shop, the High Roller’s gift store.
  • On Friday, June 20, 12AM RUN will have an in-store appearance by Steve Aoki before his set at EDC.  Come early: 150 limited edition 12AM Run x Steve Aoki EDC tanks will be sold. Follow @12amrun for more information.
  • Through Monday, May 23, show off your EDC costumed and drink a free shot at Purple Zebra. Additionally, all candy will be 20 perecent off.

Starting at 5 p.m., there will be shuttles throughout the night (up until the last concert). Shuttles heading back from the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to The LINQ will run all night. But don’t wait too long: You wouldn’t want to be stranded! Arrive at The LINQ early and enjoy all the activities.

About The Author

I live for a crazy Vegas adventure, but not in ways you may think. Sure, our nightlife scene is all fun and dandy, but I love discovering all of the city's vegan options, relaxing in hotel rooms and seeing the best concerts - no matter how big or small the crowd may be. Since I've ditched the rain in Seattle two decades ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas entertainment articles for Vegas.com, the LA Times and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I'm not writing, you'll find me spending time with my husband, toddler and two pets.
