 EDC 2013 CHICAGO:

Insomniac is gearing up for a massive nationwide Road to Vegas festival experience. This year, EDC will make its first ever stop in the Midwest to bring our world class, fully immersive audiovisual experience to thousands of headliners in Chicago.

Chicagoland Speedway is a beautiful and expansive venue, providing the perfect environment for EDC’s five stages of music, large-scale art installations, carnival rides, and more. We can’t wait to explore the grounds with all of you! Additionally, EDC Chicago will be the first and only EDC festival providing a limited number of fans with the opportunity to enjoy over-night camping directly adjacent to the festival grounds. Visit the site for more info on camping!
 

- 3 DAYS 
- HUNDREDS OF WORLD CLASS DJS, ARTISTS AND PERFORMERS 
- THOUSANDS OF BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE
- 5 MASSIVE STAGES 
- THE TOTAL INSOMNIAC EXPERIENCE 


Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella hinted early on that the property size and capacity levels of the Chicago event would be similar to that of EDC Las Vegas so it’s fitting the Chicagoland Speedway was chosen as the venue with a capacity of over 75,000. Even more space and capacity is available with the addition of adjoining properties.

The Speedway is located near Joliet, Ill., more than 45 miles outside Chicago’s downtown. This location allows EDC to extend its end time to 2 a.m., well past any other festival in the Chicago area due to noise curfews in the city limits. A number of shuttle options will likely be available from the city, in addition to on-site camping.

Insomniac has also announced EDC stops in New York, Puerto Rico, and Orlando in 2013, with the hint that one additional city will be added. Denver and Dallas have hosted the festival in the past but it’s not likely the event will return to either of those cities.
