Comfort and relaxation aren’t usually the first things that come to mind with you think of multi-day music festivals, but these events have more to offer than you would imagine. If you’d rather bask in the lap of luxury than rough it in the woods, or even the desert, then check out what these festivals have in store for you!
Las Vegas is truly the city of extravagance and EDC takes it to the limits. These electric amenities will indulge all of your senses in Sin City.
Hosted by The Cosmopolitan’s own Marquee Nightclub, festival VIP’s can enjoy a night of luxury in true Vegas fashion. Guests will be immersed in an overload of electric decor at their VIP Cabana or Table where a dedicated waitstaff will cater to their every need as they enjoy one-of-a-kind views of the mainstage. With their own VIP entrance, air-conditioned bathrooms, and no shortage of celebrity sitings, there’s no doubt this is the way to do EDC Vegas in style.
VIP Dining Deck
EDC may be a carnival, but this isn’t your average carnival food. VIP guests can enjoy seated dinners at their own private table with amazing views of the Kinetic Field main stage. An executive chef from a world class Vegas restaurant will cook up an exclusive three-course meal that includes an electric fruit bowl, graffiti tacos, kobe meatballs, ahi tuna, and various vegan options.
Even traveling to the venue can be luxurious. EDC offers helicopter transportation to the Speedway. Grab a group of your friends for a private charter for up to 7 passengers to catch dazzling views of Sin City and EDC’s signature electric sky.
