What to Bring!


When going to the Electric Daisy Carnival you should consider packing light. The tricky part at Electric Daisy Carnival is this party is almost 12 hours long and there is no re-entry at the Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas. You need to pack light and dress for the event.

We keep getting asked, “What can I bring to the Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, and what will be confiscated?”

This list is official as of last year. Comment and let us know how it makes you feel…
