2014 Lineup

2014 EDC New York Lineup

2013 Lineup

Electric Daisy Carnival Lineup 2013

EDC Information:

  • EDC NYC 2013 (its got a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?) is taking place on Friday May 17th and Saturday May 18th
  • Last year, initially only two days were announced, but they quickly added a third. So keep sunday May 19th open!
  • The location has changed. Last year took place at the Meadowlands, in New Jersey. This year’s EDC will take place at Citi Field in Flushing, Queens in New York City.
  • The concert runs from approximately 4pm to 2am so be ready to stay out all night.
  • The age limit for EDC NYC is 18 years or older.


Some of the headliners included Armin VanBuren, Avicii, AfroJack, BassNectar, Dirty South, Alesso, Chuckie, and Thomas Gold last year. The Line up was announced on April 20th in 2012, which is relatively late for a concert in May, so you can probably bet that the 2013 New York EDC Lineup will probably be announc

ed around the same time. In the mean time, here are some thing to think about to ease the anxiety you have over this year’s EDC line up:

  • If you bought tickets, but are worried the line-up for 2013’s EDC won’t be so great, don’t be. You made the right decision.
  • Tickets have already jumped from $159 to well over $250 in some places. The lineup is guaranteed to be great, so get to buying those EDC New York City tickets as soon as possible if you haven’t already.
  • They’ve done this before. EDC is one of the oldest electric dance music festivals around, and has a great reputation for bringing in the best acts in the industry
  • Last year’s line-up was ridiculous. Headliner after headliner rocked Metlife stadium. Expect the 2013 EDC lineup to be just as insane.
