EDC Vegas VIP Versus General Admission

Tickets for Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas will be going on sale soon and you’ll have the option of buying general admission ticket or a VIP ticket. Is VIP worth the money? Is there one that’s better than the other? What are your friends buying? Every year there are people that only buy VIP and then there are others who have purchased VIP and decided it was a waste of money. Decide for yourself which option is the right one.

The benefits may change but based on the last two years of EDC in Las Vegas the VIP benefits have included:

• A separate VIP entrance to the festival for rapid entry
• Viewing decks overlooking stages. Only the main stage at the far end and on the side of the Circuit Grounds stage. In 2013 the VIP deck often reached capacity and there was a long line of people waiting to get up there.
• Full cash bars located on the VIP decks and VIP lounge areas
• Separate restroom facilities located behind the main stage
• Ticket granting entry into the Electric Daisy Carnival
• Insomniac VIP lanyard & badge
• VIP Ferris Wheel

Those things may be worth the extra money for some but for others not at all. The VIP lines to get into the festival are definitely a lot faster, especially if you arrive later into the evening when lines are at their longest. The ferris wheel is a great benefit as you rise up above the crowd at the back of the main stage giving you a view that no one else will have.

Ask your friends what they’re buying, if everyone else is buying general admission you’ll want to stick with general admission as well. As you’re hanging out with your friends you’ll quickly realize the VIP pass was not worth the extra money when no one else can join you.

Don’t expect to encounter any celebrities or DJs if that’s what you’re after. You may luck out but anyone wanting to be famous is likely spending the thousands of dollars at one of the Marquee bottle service areas which is separate from VIP.

In 2012 you were able to upgrade to VIP for just one night but in 2013 it was completely sold out.
