Rumors about EDC Las Vegas 2018 have been floating around but one thing for sure is that changes are really being considered. Pasquale Rotella recently revealed to the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he was considering moving the dates of the festival. Previously held during father’s day weekend, the change might mean more family time for headliners and more tolerable weather conditions.
Just barely a month since headliners left the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Monday morning, speculations have been made about changes to one of the most anticipated electronic music events. Word was going around that there would be two weekends of EDC Las Vegas but Pasquale’s Twitter response stopped those rumors. Most recently, there was talk that Insomniac would move the festival to the new Raiders’ stadium.
Although a new date has yet to be chosen, the possibility of a new date is not just another unsubstantiated rumor.
“I’ve explored lots of date options, but no decision has been made,” Rotella said. “We could end up on the same date in June, but we’re exploring the possibility of moving.”
Considering the weather and racing events hosted at the Speedway, there is a narrow window for potential EDC dates. Memorial Day weekend has been brought up as a possibility but decisions have yet to be made. With all the rumors going around, there is finally some clarity from Pasquale about what direction the changes are going in.
