Are you looking to do EDC Las Vegas VIP style?  There are some new VIP options as well as offerings brought back from last year that will be available at EDC Las Vegas 2014.

VIP Parking

If you and your group decided to skip buying an EDC shuttle pass and are planning to drive to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for all three nights of the festival, then you might want to consider buying a VIP parking pass. You can get a three-day pass for $120 plus an $11.60 service fee and $5.50 for shipping. If there’s 4 people riding in your car that’s slightly less than $35 per person. The VIP parking pass allows one vehicle access to a special VIP lot at the Speedway, saving you time parking and getting into the festival and out of the parking lot when you’re ready to head back to your hotel to catch some sleep. It doesn’t matter whether you and your friends bought GA or VIP tickets because this designated parking will have entrance and exit lanes for both ticket holders.

VIP parking includes:

– Special VIP parking lot for easy access in and out
– Close proximity to festival entrance
– Entrance has lanes for both GA & VIP ticket holders
– Pass is valid all 3 nights of EDC Las Vegas
– Price: $120 + $11.60 service fees + $5.50 shipping

If you are not planning to drive and park at the speedway, then likely you’ll need an EDC shuttle pass.  About half the shuttle stops are no longer available, so before passes are completely sold out buy your EDC LV Shuttle Pass now.

Exclusive VIP Table Experience

With EDC tickets selling out on March 7th, the only way to still buy tickets without going through a third-party reseller is by booking a VIP table experience package from Insomniac and Marquee Nightclub. Not only will buying a table get your group into EDC but you’ll be traveling through the festival grounds VIP style, just like the DJs. You’ll be whisked from the front gate in a golf cart to the your private cabana at Marquee VIP stage area. Once you arrive at your private table you’ll be greeted with swag bags of EDC gear. Wait staff from Marquee Nightclub will be tending to all of your drinking and food needs throughout the night all while you’re enjoying an impressive view of the Kinetic Field main stages. A full bottle service menu will be available.

VIP table experience includes:

– Private cabana featuring a one of a kind, exclusive Kinetic Field view
– Golf cart transportation from the entrance to your VIP table stage
– The table is yours for the entire night
– Full bottle service menu and a diverse menu of food options delivered right to your table
– All juice and soda mixers included
– Dedicated VIP entrance
– Air-conditioned VIP restrooms
– Gift bags full of EDC swag
– Dedicated and attentive wait staff on-hand from the Marquee Nightclub venue

Helicopter Transfers to EDC

Insomniac will be collaborating again this year with Maverick Helicopters who will once again be offering one of the most extravagant EDC Las Vegas VIP experiences, traveling to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway via helicopter! After departing from the Las Vegas strip, you’ll enjoy sweeping views of Las Vegas before experiencing a rare birds-eye view of the colorful EDC festival lights and the crowds below. Get a group of friends together and reserve a private charter helicopter for up to 7 passengers or book individual seats. Private charter helicopters cost $3,000 one-way or $5,000 round-trip, and individual seats cost $500 one-way or $800 round-trip.
