EDC Las Vegas producer Insomniac Events founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella wrote via social media, “The team and I took every single factor into consideration: weather, hotel rates, talent availability, coordination with the Speedway and local officials, and most importantly, a date that would give us enough time for things to get back to normal so we can all come back stronger than ever.”

Las Vegas New Construction + Upcoming Grand Openings

Lined with some of the most upscale and luxurious hotels and casinos in the world, the Las Vegas Strip is the ideal picturesque image of the sin city that we all envision in our minds. Within its scenic concentration of resort and casino real estate also lie world-class residential high-rise buildings, restaurants, unique entertainment complexes, a skyline that is to die for, and the most highly-rated live music performance venues and nightclubs that exist. Nevada is also home to some of the world’s biggest music festivals, including Insomniac Events’ EDC Las Vegas (Electric Daisy Carnival), Life Is Beautiful, and Burning Man, not to mention The Killers live from the front of Caesars Palace in the center of The Strip as part of a Jimmy Kimmel Live concert series, earlier this year.

Things are only getting better from here for the famous scenic strip. Over the past couple of years, the Las Vegas Strip has gained the most traveler attention to its date, and is now one of the most iconic tourist destinations in the nation. With an increase in tourism comes the need to supply the strip with more of these modern and upscale hotels, resorts, and casinos, so that visitors can embark on the once-in-a-lifetime experience only the city of Las Vegas can provide for them.

Luckily, brand new deluxe hotel, resort, and casino openings have been announced, as well as both completed and ongoing renovation plans for a few existing properties as well. The strategic business and architectural planning that is put into the building and reconstructing these extravagant buildings requires an exquisite amount of time (and billions of dollars), but we hope to witness all these new upcoming changes by the year 2020. From here on forward, visiting and residing at the Las Vegas strip will be more preeminent than ever before.

In fact, some of the most recognized properties have already revitalized under months of reconstruction. The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino revamped its Casino Tower’s 575 guest rooms this past year. The company wanted to accentuate guest rooms with a design that would incorporate the true atmosphere of the casino and high-roller lifestyle, which is the property’s main attraction. All with views of the sparkling Las Vegas skyline, the new suites now demonstrate walls full of light gray, white, and plum tones and a contemporary design style. These renovations have attracted some of the hottest live music performers to the property, with several surprise acts to be announced in the near future.

Planet Hollywood also recently completed its renovation project this past summer during the month of June. All 2,496 rooms were redesigned to represent the successes of Caesars Entertainment Corp and its existing luxury properties. The newly designed rooms consist of brighter and more vibrant interiors full of color and mosaic portraits along their walls, as well as a true to life photograph of the night-time city skyline to bring about the vibrancy of Las Vegas nightlife within all guest rooms. Exceeding $100 million dollars, these Planet Hollywood renovations are the first of Caesars’ Las Vegas properties to officially be completed.

Another prominent Caesar property, The Flamingo, is currently undergoing renovations as well. The Flamingo’s 1,270 new rooms will speak for the hotel’s name themselves, featuring flamingo pink colors, gold accents, and contemporary-retro designs all throughout. Being that the property just celebrated its 70th anniversary last year, the company decided that it was time to spice things up and enliven the property without straying away from incorporating its history into its new design structure. Official renovation completion is in 2018, but luckily construction is going quickly and smoothly, meaning guests might even be able to experience the dashingly restored Flamingo property by the end of this year.

The acclaimed MGM Grand, one of the largest hotels in the world, is currently undergoing a $130 million dollar renovation on the strip in order to exceed competing properties in available overall space and guest capacity. The ongoing renovations will expand its already grand conference room and meeting space, introduce a new courtyard for private events, and spawn eleven breakout rooms. All of these alterations will supplement the property’s existing Marquee Ballroom and Grand Garden Arena, and will guarantee an increase in event related business demands for the company.

By the end of 2018 after undergoing a two-year, $450 million makeover, the noted Monte Carlo Hotel will transform into the new Park MGM, which will be MGM Resorts International’s newest luxury brand. In an interview, MGM’s CEO Jim Murren expressed his interest in the investing and remodeling of the Monte Carlo, as it has been actively operating since 1996. According to him, the hotel will remain open during reconstruction as the Monte Carlo until further notice. Murren is thrilled to reinvent the property’s original concept entirely to bring more life to the Vegas scene, and stated that “this a top-to-bottom, stem-to-stern type of re imagining with incredible talent that is not here, and that’s really why Las Vegas is doing so well because people continue to search for these one-of-a-kind moments and what they’ve never seen before.” The new Park MGM is about to present a new wave of coexisting lavish hotel brands to the strip, as it is teaming up with the NoMad hotel brand and its also luxurious style such as those of its properties in New York City and Los Angeles.

Wynn Resort and Casino is also revamping and will bring about a notion that the strip has never seen before. The property will be featuring its new Paradise Park concept, consisting of a 20-acre lagoon, a white sand waterfront and boardwalk, additional convention space, a new tower for about 1,000 new rooms, and fresh entertainment attractions. These striking add-on features will all reside alongside the resort on a 130-acre golf course owned by the company. It will be the first aquatic themed resort within the Las Vegas Strip borough. CEO Steve Wynn stated the importance of bringing about new concepts to his pre-existing operations, as he quotes, “If you’re not growing, you’re going backwards.” Construction for their new project is set to launch early this December and property owners expect the finishing touches to be completed by 2019.

Predominantly all prominent Las Vegas hotel properties such as the ones mentioned above are all clustered in the strip’s most popular southern segment. To create a new wave of real estate property trends, a few relatively new and currently in-the-works properties are opening up in the northern part of the strip, which will heat up a neoteric area away from its original hot spot.

What was supposed to be the luxurious SLS Las Vegas hotel, a leading brand also existent in South Beach and LA, unfortunately did not gain as much popularity on this segment of the strip as investors had hoped for. Fortunately, W Hotels (now under the Marriott International umbrella) took on a decision to expose the W Hotel brand to the sin city as an expansion of the existing SLS Las Vegas, which opened up earlier this year. The concept of this new refined W property is that of “a hotel within a hotel”, with opulent aspects of the SLS still in tact (dining and nightlife included) mixed with those of W Hotels, all creating a spectacular revamped property for high-class guests.

With W Hotels being a highly-recognized signature brand worldwide, the brand’s complementary hotel amenities exist at this new Las Vegas property as well. The hotel’s new service components include upscale social and nightlife venues such as the WET rooftop pool and The Living Room Lounge, the largest meeting space any other W hotel property holds, a 24 hour FIT gym, and its pampering Away spa. W Hotels couldn’t have made a better decision than with W Hotel Las Vegas, as this is the type of pretentious hotel brand the city was missing.

Shortly after the grand opening of the W Hotel, the opening of Las Vegas’s newest and most original property to date followed. The Lucky Dragon Hotel and Casino, an independently owned boutique property with 203 rooms, debuted its brand new and unique property concept in the northern cluster of the strip. The hotel was built to reflect authentic and traditional Asian culture and its prominent relationship with gaming, a huge aspect of what Las Vegas is all about. Property owners discussed that although the hotel’s main target market includes gaming fanatics such as Asian Americans and wealthy travelers from overseas, all are welcome to dwell into everything The Lucky Dragon has to offer. Its owners decided to make all aspects of the property as authentic as possible, from its ethnic dining options down to the language hotel employees use to greet and communicate with guests.

Throughout the hotel, guests will find common Asian table games such as Pai Gow poker, Baccarat, traditional slots, and a high-roller VIP gaming luxury area. Not to mention an indoor-outdoor Tea Garden “Cha Garden” featuring an exquisite tea sommelier, and a spa which promotes traditional Asian regional treatments such as acupuncture and reflexology among many others. The success of the hotel’s dining and entertainment venues have been so immense that the property disclosed its “Jazz Saturday” events at Cha Garden with happy-hour priced food and beverage options and live music, as well as its “Hot Manila Nights” which will take place every Friday at Dragon’s Alley, a venue placed strategically next to the main casino floor.

The Lucky Dragon features a lodging and entertainment image that Vegas has never witnessed since its upbringing, and a larger competing property nearby has fabricated a similar concept, except it is not set to open until 2020. Resort World, a $7 billion project owned by Genting Group (a powerful Malaysian based company) is under way to become Las Vegas’s newest grand property, with 3,500 rooms on an 86-acre lot. Similar to the Lucky Dragon, Resorts World’s main thematic attraction reflects Asian cultures and lifestyles but in a larger and brighter light. Originally, property owners hoped to incorporate old Chinese architecture and design concepts throughout the resort, but in the end decided to shift towards design elements that would attract millennials and represent a more modern Asian culture, such as the types you would find in Shanghai, China.

The resort’s amenities are rumored to be “the future” of hotels, resort, and casino properties and what better city to debut futuristic and celestial lodging features than Vegas? As of now, final specifics regarding these hotel amenities have not been released, but there has been talk about the property’s main areas featuring live panda bears, an enlarged 56 story high traditional Chinese lantern , an old-style Chinese garden view from certain guest rooms, artificial outdoor water landmarks, a 150,00 square foot casino, and even an astral sphere that will take selfies of guests once they are checked into the property. This coexisting mix of traditional and innovative Chinese-Asian flare designs will bring a new light to what Vegas resorts and casinos are all about, and will change the Vegas hotel operations game in the near future once the property hosts its grand opening in 2020.

Vegas will always be Vegas, but with all these ongoing development reconstructions and upbringings, who knows if the typical lodging scene in the sin city will change once and for all. For many, anytime Las Vegas is mentioned, hotels and resorts such a the Bellagio, Caesars Palace, and the Venetian are the first few that naturally come to mind. However, these state-of-the-art properties such as the ones described above are possibly a catalyst to property trends and design modules that the city is to demand highly down the line. Las Vegas already attracts a certain crowd, a crowd that loves to party, gamble, indulge in prestigious lodging and dining, explore exclusive entertainment venues and events, and witness the unimaginable. What’s to come for the Las Vegas Strip in the next couple of years will be revolutionary for the sin city in terms of lodging and entertainment, and will offset a new wave of modernized destination trends never seen before.

Your VIP Guide to EDC Las Vegas 2018

The Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) energizes the Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend with a grand explosion of thumping beats, glowing colors, good vibes and eclectic fashion choices.

In an effort to avoid the extreme summer heat of Vegas, this year’s festival is a few weeks earlier than in the past. That doesn’t mean there won’t still be plenty of heat in nightclubs all over the city and on the festival grounds May 18-20. There will also be crowds (lots of them) and traffic (lots of it).

If you love electronic music, but dread the idea of getting to EDC, gathering in congested groups or going into porta potties, there are some ways to turn your EDC experience from hot and sticky to haute and swanky.

Flying cars and personal jetpacks have yet to hit the Vegas transportation market, but you can still arrive at EDC via the Las Vegas sky.

Your 15-minute luxury helicopter ride takes off from Maverick Helicopters‘ runway on the Las Vegas Strip and whisks you to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in style, offering breathtaking views of the city from start to finish. Be sure to wave at all the drivers headed to EDC in the traffic on the freeways below. Maybe you can save them a spot near the stage for Afrojack.

Round-trip rides for groups of up to seven people cost $5,500 (plus fees and taxes). Single seats for round-trip passage are $850 (plus fees and taxes).

VIP tickets to EDC are $699 for three days, but it’s an investment with many payoffs, including: raised viewing decks; Dedicated dance areas; lounge space with dance space, food, games, and more; an EDC VIP info booth; VIP Ferris wheel and dedicated VIP fast-pass lanes for various carnival rides located in the general admission area.

VIP festivalgoers also enjoy a body paint and beauty bar, oxygen bar, Kandi bracelet making station, VIP ball pit, cell phone charging stations, dedicated gourmet food trucks, a complimentary breakfast and air-conditioned bathrooms.

For those who long to be treated like a king or queen among mere festivalgoers and VIPs, we suggest booking a table at the Marquee SkyDeck. Expanded this year to nearly double its size, it boasts amazing views of the kineticFIELD, sparkly bottle service presentations, and access to every VIP area in the festival.

Sponsored by TAO Group, your SkyDeck experience begins upon your arrival at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway with a dedicated check-in tent for quick entry to the festival. You’ll then be transported to your SkyDeck table via a private golf cart, where you’ll indulge in top-of-the-line champagne, tequila and vodka brands as well as electrifying bottle presentations with sparklers.

Oh, and have we mentioned the private air-conditioned restrooms?

Additional bottle service packages with easy check-in, access to VIP areas and private restrooms are also available on premier viewing decks at neonGARDEN, circuitGROUNDS and quantumVALLEY.

Book table service at EDC or other clubs in Las Vegas on the Discotech App. You can also sup for free guestlists during EDC week and buy tickets!

EDC 2017 Tips and Tricks

Looking to have a fantastic weekend under the electric sky at EDC Las Vegas? Follow these tips from a veteran headliner!

Whether you’re attending EDC Las Vegas for the first time or returning to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to dance all night once again, we know that you’ll want to optimize your experience. Over the years many of the die-hard headliners who have been in attendance have given their best EDC Las Vegas Tips to members of their rave families and others in the community, to provide the best weekend of their life.

As active contributors to the r/ElectricDaisyCarnival Subreddit and Facebook Group, we have seen our fair share of what works and what doesn’t. Simple things like essential items to bring, or what to do in Las Vegas or on the festival grounds have been refined as new ideas and experiences come to life. The EDC Las Vegas Tips & Tricks below come from years of experience attending the event and hopefully will help you have an awesome experience too.

EDC Las Vegas Tips & Tricks

Call your bank/credit card companies before you leave and hit the bank or ATM before you leave home.

Let them know you will be traveling to Vegas to avoid holds on your account. Cash is also king for tips on the strip or if you plan on gambling, and the ATM fees are generally very high both inside the festival and on the strip itself.

Credit and debit cards could also possibly be hit or miss if the speedway’s internet network isn’t too reliable. Don’t be stuck without a way to pay for something you need!

Be vigilant on the Strip.

Everyone is trying to hustle, be wary of offers that are too good to be true. Watch out for promoters on the street who are just trying to fill their quota and aren’t actually giving you free access to nightclubs. Street performers will expect tips if you take pictures!

Hit up a Vegas buffet at least one day.

There are plenty of amazing buffets around the strip and many of them are worth their price of admission. Make sure to check Yelp! for reviews, and there are even discounts available if you play MyVegas or are a member of the casino’s club.

Stay comfortable throughout the weekend.

Stretch in your hotel room before leaving for the festival each day. Your muscles will thank you in the morning and you won’t cramp up as easy in the heat!

Wear comfy shoes or get insoles to replace the “stock” insoles that come with your shoes. Also, consider investing in a pack of moleskin if your feet are prone to blisters from rubbing against your socks. Your feet will thank you!

Get to the festival early each day.

Stop by the merchandise tent first thing because items sell out fast. If you want to ride the rides, get there early or risk missing sets while standing in line! Some rides you will be waiting for an hour or more at peak times, so choose the ones you want to ride the most quickly!

Consider a mobile charging locker to store your merchandise and other items in!

If you bring all of your sealed items in on the first day (wipes, chapstick, cigarettes, gum, tampons, etc), you can keep them all in your locker overnight and not have to worry about getting three of each sealed item to bring in every single day.

Remember to hide your lock from people who may peer over your shoulder or look at your combination wristband and try to get into your locker. Remain vigilant inside the festival!

Time-stamp your texts! If you have a large crew and need to split up to see different sets, plan a meeting spot!

There will be cell service congestion. Stamping your texts will help your friends know whenever you truly sent a message!

When planning a meeting spot, make sure to pick a location that is stationary like the locker area, the cooling area, or one of the buildings in EDC Town. Don’t be one of those people who tried to meet “under the daisy” that ended up getting moved a few years back.

Bring an external battery pack!

If you are someone who likes to take a lot of photo and video you’ll need the extra juice. These will definitely make sure that you can get ahold of your friends and take some epic shots.

Don’t forget to hydrate!

After you get your merchandise and put it in your locker, your next stop should be one of the four free water stands to fill up your hydration pack or water bottle. It’s very important to remain hydrated, especially while the sun is still out and bearing down on you! If you tip some of the vendors, they will give you ice if the warm water turns you off.

Tired of water? Buy a smoothie or a lemonade. They are a nice change of pace from warm hydrant water. The fresh fruit smoothies are absolutely delicious too!

If you need to eat something, consider the food trucks instead of the concession stands.

The food trucks have their company name out there and on the line when compared to the generic concession stand items, the quality of the food is unparalleled. Don’t make the same mistake as I did last year and get a raw onion sandwich masked as a “cheese steak”.

Bring earplugs! Tinnitus sucks!

This goes without saying, but get more information on great options for ear protection here. Seriously, protect your damn eardrums okay?

Wear sunscreen!

Remember, if you are staying up all night the sun is up at 5AM and starts beaming down on you almost immediately. If you’re attending a pool party, you should be applying sunscreen before heading out each day too.

EDC is a marathon, not a sprint.

If you are going to drink alcohol, do so in moderation and stay hydrated! For every alcoholic drink you have, you should drink 8-16oz of water next to keep your body functioning well.

Emergen-C packets are a lifesaver. Take one before the festival every night in order to help you recover from the night before and prepare for the festival ahead.

Don’t forget to take some time to take it all in.

Look up and enjoy the fireworks! Head to the top of the stairs to get that insane view of the entire speedway. Send a postcard to your house from the EDC Town Post Office too.

Don’t forget about the EDC Parade down Rainbow Road every night. You should at least try to check it out one time out of the three nights you are there!

Follow your favorite artists on social media.

You’ll be the first to know if they may show up unannounced (pls Kaskade), or if they are doing any surprise sets on one of the art cars or somewhere hidden.

If you are feeling at all dehydrated or anything else medical related, visit one of the medical tents.

The medical staff is super friendly and you WILL NOT get in trouble for seeking medical treatment, no matter your condition. If you can’t make it to the medical tent, look for a Ground Control staff member to assist you or any of your friends! Look out for your fellow ravers. If you see something, say something! This will keep everyone safe and having a good time.

If you are going to do drugs, and especially MDMA, test it before you take it, please.

Do not buy drugs at the festival. Seriously, just don’t do it. Not only do you risk getting bunk goods, but undercover cops are all over too. If you plan on partaking in festivities, please be safe. Test everything you plan on taking because the cost of a test kit is far less than a trip to the hospital. You can even use an Amazon Locker to get your kits sent to Las Vegas safely!

Bring baby wipes with you.

As it is common with all festivals the porta-potties will run out of toilet paper. It’s just a fact of the festival scene and many times they don’t get resupplied either. You will thank me if you get caught in this situation.

Hand fans can keep you seriously cool!

Crowds inside the festival can get pretty hot and people will love you. These are inexpensive and a great way to make new friends.

Wear a bandana inside the festival.

Tie it around your neck for each night you are out there. Put it over your mouth and nose when the dust gets to be too much. Your lungs will thank you, plus you get to look like a bandit. It’s a win-win situation.

Trains of people are going to happen, so use them to your advantage.

Become the caboose to go into or out of the crowds and use your manners! Excuse me and thank you go a long way when navigating the crowd!

Bring good vibes, leave the judgment at the gates, and most of all, enjoy yourself and smile!

EDC Las Vegas is a glorious wonderland of fun. Bring the good vibes with you, and you’ll get them in return. If you follow these tips you will have a great time, I promise!

Oh, and don’t forget to call your Dad on Father’s Day before you head out for night 3!
