At noon today Pasquela Rotella of Insomniac Events followed through with his promise of providing the much anticipated info about EDC Chicago details. Releasing the official dates and tweeting and instagram photo of what looks like the Chicago Speedway in Joliet. EDC Chicago will be hosted from Friday May 24 to Sunday May 26th. Tickets will go on sale at noon central time on Wednesday January 23.
People will complain that its not directly in Chicago but in my opinion no other available venue in Chicago was large enough to host the massive production that is EDC. Grant Park hosts Lollapalooza, Union Park North Coast Music Festival, Soldier Field has Spring Awakening Music Festival. This was the most logical of location though its a bit of a drive from the city.
To get tickets on January 23rd follow this link to the EDC Chicago Website. A 3 day pass will be ONLY $175 while VIP’s who have to be 21+ can enjoy the 3 day event for $299. Chicago will be the first time EDC party goers can also choose to camp at the event. Like other music festivals that showcase the camping option all campers will be allowed to walk back n forth between eh festival grounds and their campsites throughout the 3 days. If you choose to camp you must buy a camp permit which brings the general admission price to $295 and VIP to $419
Don’t be shy Chicago!! well see you in Joliet on memorial day weekend!! #JustStayChi
