EDC Las Vegas 2013 Festival Guidelines of Allowed and Prohibited Items

The Electric Daisy Carnival web site has been updated with the 2013 guidelines and as you read the list you’ll probably wonder if anything is allowed. The list is a long list of NO and a handful of YES items. The list is standard for just about any large festival or even big concert. People will get things in that are listed as NO and other people will get the same things taken away.

LED gloves and LED microlights are two items prohibited at Insomniac events that people still seem to get the most upset about. Does it make sense? Not really but there’s no need in going into detail. It’s a rule at their events, just accept it and move on. It’s not the end of the world.

Here’s the list and feel free to leave a comment if there’s any questions!
