The Five MOST Important things about EDC NYC

Chances are if you’re reading this you’re extremely excited for Electric Daisy Carnival this weekend. You should be!

This weekend is jammed packed with artists performing a wide arrange of sets across 4 stages at Meadowlands arena. But you’re already well informed of that and have already compiled a list of who you’re going to see. So without further adieu I present,

The Five MOST Important things to know before attending EDC NYC:

1. Stay Hydrated!
And I don’t mean at the festival, stay hydrated now! Drink a good amount of water a day to keep your body hydrated without necessarily having to drink like a camel at EDC.

Besides we all know you’ll be avoiding losing your spot for a quick drink.

2. Travel Light

Leave your camelback at home, don’t carry a huge wallet and make sure there’s key under the mat. You won’t need any of these things at EDC. This year security has been beefed up to avoid any tragedies and chances are they won’t let you enter with a camelback – don’t risk it. Don’t bring a huge wallet, you don’t need receipts from duane reade at EDC. Bring a state issued id or passport and cash because they’ll be little to no ATMs – Cash is your best friend!

3. Buddy System

We’ve all heard this before and we all ignore it. You don’t have to stick with a buddy but make sure to stick to your group! There will be no cell service at EDC because – well who knows but it always happens at every festival. Don’t get lost or you’ll never see your friends again! – Someone suggested walkie talkies.

4. Know Your Limits

We’re not your parents and neither is the person standing next to you. Know yourself and your limits, this is not the place to first try molly – you don’t want to end up on abc news. Security will know you’re gone and will pull you from the crowd and to an ambulance or worse, THE COPS! Get drunk, do whatever you have to just do it intelligently.

5. Enjoy Yourself

Remember you paid 200+ for these tickets, enjoy the festival! Lines for the rides get super long so if you want to get on one do it in the morning. I would suggest not recording anything because it takes up space on your phone and you never really seem to do anything with those videos. 15 second videos are cool just don’t watch the festival through your phone. Take pictures though! And take lots, of everything your outfits, your crew and tag us #EOEDCNY we want to know our followers and you might win a prize!


Lastly for those who aren’t attending:

Don’t fret you can still catch all the fun through Sirius XM. They’ll be broadcasting EDC NYC live!
