Producers of Electric Daisy Carnival Contribute to Local Charities

The group behind the Electric Daisy Carnival gave thousands of dollars to local charities in southern Nevada. The donations were handed out at an event Monday.

Insomniac produces the three-day music festival at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The group donates $1 per ticket transaction and $10 per guest list attendee to charitable organizations.

The group donated $25,000 to Injured Police Officers Fund – Las Vegas, $25,000 to Clark County School-Community Partnership Program, $25,000 Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund through the University of Nevada Reno Foundation, $10,000 to Speedway Children’s Charity – Las Vegas Chapter and $30,000 to the national Rock the Vote initiative.

Dr. Dale Carrison is the chairman of emergency medicine at the University of Nevada, School of Medicine. He is also the medical director for the Electric Daisy Carnival, spending the festival in a motor home loaded with medical equipment. Carrison accepted the check for the emergency medicine residency from Insomniac at Monday’s presentation.

“They are not here to get a hit, get the bucks and go home. They are new to our community. They participate in our community, and I think this is an example of what they have done for our community. They are partnering and providing resources to charities within our community. It is only going to make our community better," Dr. Carrison said.

An estimated 320,000 people attended the festival this past year. Planning is already under way for next year’s EDC.
