Construction on I-15 has caused severe delays in traffic at this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. Couple that with all you raging party people, and you’re going to have quite the rude awakening when entering and departing from the Las Vegas Speedway. Local news channels have reported that the average wait time to actually commute to the festival grounds clock in at around 90 minutes, more or less, but we’re guessing more. We highly encourage you to carpool and take advantage of the free rides and paid shuttle services provided by Insomniac Events.
If the first two days were bad, don’t expect the last day to get any better, in fact. expect it to be the worst. Since the festival actually ends early Monday morning, you should expect more drivers on the road that do not include the people exiting the festival, but the locals heading to work Monday morning.
Be safe and do not drive while intoxicated.
CEO and founder of Insomniac Events has issued his own official statement regarding the traffic delays, which have affected the overall EDC experience:
“EDC Headliners, we hear you loud and clear on all issues related to traffic, shuttles, and Premiere Parking. This is not the level of experience you deserve, and we are working to fix these problems. Keep the lines of communication open. If you have an issue or question, please let us know via social media. We also encourage you to ride share whenever possible, or take advantage of our new, free Park & Ride option, located at 628 West Craig Road. Park & Ride is first come, first served. The fewer vehicles on the road the better. Please remember to come hydrated—and stay hydrated. Let’s have an amazing night two!”
