EDC reports no deaths and mostly minor medical calls
The final stats for Electric Daisy Carnival’s 20th anniversary have arrived. All in all, the 3-day festival saw an average of 133,000 people at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway each day, making for a grand attendance total of around 400,000 across the weekend.
Las Vegas Metro Police reported 101 felony arrests — up from the 76 last year. 617 total medical calls were made — down significantly from the 1,426 calls last year. Most noteworthy of all, no one died this year, making it the first time the festival has reported no fatalities since 2013.
It’s reassuring news, especially given the scorching heat across all three days, and a reminder that raving can in fact be done responsibly. Ultimately, it’s an important benchmark for the festival itself, helping to ensure EDC’s longevity moving forward.
