Insomniac Events held the 19th annual Electric Daisy Carnival back in June. The three day festival in Las Vegas is the biggest music festival in North America. A portion of ticket sales benefit charities in Las Vegas. Insomniac raised $105,000 which will benefit the Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund, Injured Police Officers Fund and HELP of Southern Nevada’s Shannon West Homeless Youth Center. Each charity will receive $35,000.
This year, Insomniac also held the first ever “EDC Charity Week Auction” which also raised funds for Culture Shock Las Vegas. This nonprofit helps keep youth away from substance abuse, violence and hatred through performance art and dance. Culture Shock Las Vegas will get $70,000 which was raised from the auction.
Since EDC moved to Las Vegas back in 2011, Insomniac has donated over $380,000 to Las Vegas area charities. The 20th annual Electric Daisy Carnival will be held June 17,18,19 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This will be the biggest and best EDC to date!
