EDC Campers Face Difficulties Including Long Lines, Closed Porta-Potties and Fire Hazards

EDC Las Vegas has been one of the most anticipated events of the year. This year’s event is having its very first inaugural camping edition which has really amped up the excitement to another level. If you have camped at any other of Insomniac‘s festivals you know that they can deliver, however recent reports of campers arriving at Camp EDC show otherwise.

The most common issue seen is reports of excruciatingly painful long lines to get into the camp site. Today tweets have described wait times of up to 8 hours,Β with yesterday’s average wait time to get in being around 4-6 hours.

What adds more difficulty to the situation is that yesterday a shooter was reported in Las Vegas and this incident led to the box office at the World Market Center to close early. While this was a smart move for safety reasons, several campers were unable to pick up their camping passes and no notice was given.

Additionally, several other problems have been developing with people tweeting that porta-potties have been overflowing, the festival being understaffed, and limited shower stations. These issues come as a surprise to such a large scale festival as EDC Las Vegas, and no comment has been issued from EDC about the difficulties. A simple advisory to “expect delays” and “arrive with a full tank of gas” was given.

As campers arrive for the jam packed event, we’ll see what else unfolds for Camp EDC. Most recently, there have been a few reports of hazardous lighting in the air conditioned Shiftpods, and although quickly dealt with, this has shown a lack of attention to detail.
