EDC Chicago 2013 Preview

24 May 2013 - - - The DJ List


Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for in the Midwest! EDC Chicago, the first Insomniac festival to finally make it to the Windy City, is here and the second stop on “The Road to Vegas” is going to be unlike anything we’ve seen before. Located about an hour outside of the city in Joliet, IL at the Chicagoland Speedway, the newest EDC will feature hundreds of the world’s best DJ’s including Above & Beyond, Armin Van Buuren, Avicii, Danny Avila, Eric Prydz, Fedde Le Grand, Gareth Emery, Hardwell, Headhunterz, Kaskade, Sander Van Doorn, Sebastian Ingrosso, and last, but definitely not least, Tiesto. Not only is this one of the best line-ups I’ve seen at a festival all year, but the festival will span from 5 PM – 4 AM each night creating that signature EDC all night party which we have become so accustomed to experiencing. Also, for the first time ever at an EDC festival there will be overnight camping available directly adjacent to the Chicagoland Speedway to provide a great way to meet new friends and get the full festival experience. If you’re not lucky enough to enjoy the overnight camping at the festival and you don’t want to make the commute to and from the city yourself, don’t worry! Insomniac has your back with shuttles running to and from the event from a few of Chi-Town’s premiere colleges. Not much is known as to what the layout of the festival will be like or what kind of production they’ll have since this is the first year, but we can only imagine that it’s going to knock everybody’s socks off just as every Insomniac festival always does. The weekend is certainly destined to be one for the books and, from my experience in this city, the overall atmosphere and crowd attending will be amazing. Tickets are still available for purchase so if you’re feeling spontaneous this Memorial Day Weekend, now would be the time to grab some tickets, get all of your best friends together, and head down towards the Chicagoland Speedway for the wildest weekend in the Chicagoland area! You won’t regret it. We’ll see you there!
