Organizers: Electric Daisy Rave Gave $207M Boost

 

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Organizers of the Electric Daisy Carnival rave say the event has pumped $207 million into the southern Nevada economy.

A report released this week and commissioned by production company Insomniac says 90 percent of attendees at this June's three-day party came from outside the Las Vegas area.

The festival brought $103 million in spending, including more than $29 million in accommodations, almost $20 million in transportation and nearly $20 million in dining. The event also brought extra income for workers in the Las Vegas area and additional tax revenue.

Organizers counted more than 320,000 fans when all three days' attendance was added up. That's a big jump over the 230,000 fans who came to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway the year earlier.
