Five Las Vegas Music Festivals Scheduled for 2021

Several big-name Las Vegas music festivals are looking to make a comeback this year after being forced to skip 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Among some of the festivals scheduled to return this year include Sin City staples Electric Daisy Carnival and Life is Beautiful, and will take into account safety and social distance guidelines from local authorities with their events this year. 

Insomniac founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella recently wrote on Instagram post of his that EDC — which brings in close to 130,000 per day — is still set for its Vegas dates this May while they continue to work with local officials regarding COVID precautions.

“I know a lot of you are looking for an EDCLV update, so yes, we’re continuing to plan EDC Las Vegas & Beyond Wonderland for their scheduled dates,” Rotella wrote Sunday in a comment on his own Instagram post about the Florida music festival Abduction 2021. “There continues to be new developments & we’re in constant communication with local officials. If things change, however, we have backup dates in place & I’ll let you know soon.”
