An umbrella catches the shadow of a performer. This weekend's Electric Daisy Carnival in Vegas is a massive undertaking: a rave as county fair, with rides, a funhouse, fireworks, alcohol and multiple stages for music.

Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas

The Electric Daisy Carnival, a three-day rave in Las Vegas this weekend,  was expected to draw more than 70,000 people each night. The annual music festival previously took place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, where last summer a 15-year-old girl attending the festival died, spurring scrutiny of the event. The company that produces the festival, Insomniac Productions, subsequently moved the event to Las Vegas. The Electric Daisy Carnival, spread across five stages at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, features electronic dance music and  performance artists.

Reviews and more from the Los Angeles Times on the Electric Daisy Carnival.
