EDC Chicago Tickets and Camping
You are officially up in the mix of all things Electric Daisy Carnival
EDC Chicago tickets are now on sale as of 1/23/2013. Unlike EDC Las Vegas, where tickets were slowly dripped out in stages, you can purchase 3-day GA tickets, VIP, and packages on layaway at this very moment.
According to Insomniac founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella, the midwest has been begging for EDM love. They’ve been clamoring for an event the scale and scope of Electric Daisy Carnival. In his own words,
“As Insomniac continues to grow, our first priority is listening to our fans and they’ve made us feel confident that EDC has a home in Chicago.”
So Chicago, you asked, so you shall receive. The event is scheduled to go down May 24th through May 26th. However, special guests will be able to pre-party a night earlier. More on that below.
Festival Ticket Pricing
3-Day General Admission tickets start at $175.
VIP tickets (21+ Older) start at $299.
Here’s the best part about the pricing, you can get them on layaway. Generally speaking, you would usually pay more for an event, item, or service if you pay on layaway. But this is not the case with these tickets. As we stand today, there is no difference in price should you choose either way of paying.
You can purchase tickets HERE.
Camping at EDC Chicago
That’s right Chicago will have a special camping area allocated for Camping Passholders ONLY. Here are the prices:
- 3-Day General Admission Camping / Festival package starts at $295
- 3-Day VIP Camping / Festival package starts at $419
As a camping passholder, you can move freely between EDC and the campgrounds throughout the weekend. There will be portable water, toilets, showers and vendors available on site.
EDC Chicago Camping Special Bonus
Campers can pre-party on Thursday, May 23rd for early tent pitching on site. Insomniac is known for under promising and over delivering, so they might have something special in store for those that take advantage of the camping package.
Reasons Why You Should Camp at EDC Chicago
Parking and Traffic. It’s a 3 Day event and there will likely be thousands of people there. If there’s one take away from every city in every city is this:
- Parking is expensive
- Traffic is horrendous
So if you want to dance the night away alongside the stars twinkling above, your best bet is to stay on site the entire 3 days.
For those who prefer a less rustic festival experience, travel packages and hotel deals will be available at www.electricdaisycarnival.com shortly. We will likely have something up and running here at www.howtoedc.com as well.
