EDC: NY Returns to New York City and Citi Field in 2016
Electric Daisy Carnival: New York will officially be returning to the Big Apple in 2016 on May 14th and 15th. The past two years, Insomniac Events’ East Coast massive has been across the state border in New Jersey at MetLife Stadium; however, in 2016, the festival will be heading back to its home inside the city limits at Citi Field in Queens. Insomniac Events head Pasquale Rotella seems very excited about being back in New York City, stating:
“I’m happy to announce EDCNY’s return to Citi Field and back to NYC proper! We have handled all the issues with layout and sound that didn’t work at this venue in 2013. We’ve got a new festival footprint that will leave more room for the stages, carnival rides, roaming performers, and interactive art installations. It’s going to be bigger and better than before.”
To pair with the date and location announcement, Insomniac also released a preview of how the festival grounds will be laid out. New York’s installment will feature four of EDC’s iconic stages: Kinetic Field, Circuit Grounds, Cosmic Meadow, and Neon Garden. I know we are very excited to see what sort of stage design they bring to the May festival.
Tickets will go on sale Monday, November 30th at 12pm EST at NewYork.ElectricDaisyCarnival.com. General Admission tickets will start at $199 plus fees and VIP packages will start at $459 plus fees.
We are incredibly excited about this announcement and we hope to be seeing you there next year!
