After a relatively peaceful event despite fears of much larger problems, the Electric Daisy Carnival returns to Las Vegas next year.

The music and art festival held at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) will take place June 8-10.

“When Insomniac decided to produce EDC in Las Vegas last June, we knew we were working with the ideal venue but we weren’t sure how our fans would react,” said Insomniac President and CEO Pasquale Rotella. “But after seeing more than 230,000 people show up to enjoy our show we knew we picked a city and venue that serves as the perfect home for the largest electronic music festival in North America.”

"The promoter of EDC, Insomniac, demonstrated that it operates a well-organized, safe and secure event. The people at Insomniac are proven professionals,” said Chris Powell, president of LVMS.

Las Vegas Events will be involved in the production of the 2012 event

The money will go to Clark County School Community Partnership Program which connects businesses to schools to enrich education.

Money raised will also go to the Smith Center for the Performing Arts.The center is currently under construction downtown but when finished it will be a state-of-the art home to performances big and small. It will also be a place for arts education in the valley.
