The Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) is already gearing up for its next season. The popular music festival has confirmed that it will return to the Las Vegas Music Speedway on June 8 – 10. Last year discounted early bird tickets sold out almost as soon as they were released, so be ready to logon to their website when tickets for the festival go on sale at 2 PM Central Standard Time on Tuesday, November 1, 2011. Three-day General Admission tickets will start at $215, three-day VIP tickets are to start at $500 each and will most likely go up. We also hear that there will be a limited quantity of single-day tickets available at a later date.   For tickets and more information click here.  No word yet on if the event will be making a return to Dallas as well. –David Morris
