As we anxiously await our return to our rightful home at EDC Las Vegas this June, we’ve just unveiled this hysterical clip to celebrate our much-anticipated Halfway to EDC, which takes place this month ahead of our 21st anniversary of EDC, the largest dance music festival in North America.
In the video, Nigel Ficke—performer, pasty enthusiast, and all-around goofball—returns in all his gloriousness as he skydives straight into the heart of Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the host venue of EDC Las Vegas, only to discover it’s a party of one. Expecting the stunning stages, fire-breathing art cars, exhilarating carnival rides, and over 400,000 high-energy Headliners for which EDC Las Vegas is known, Nigel instead drops in on annoyed NASCAR drivers and empty bleachers. Watch the hilarity ensue in the full clip above.
But as Nigel so gleefully says, “It’s never too early to party!”
These words come to life at Halfway to EDC, which takes over Sin City Presidents’ Day weekend—Saturday, February 18, and Sunday, February 19—at the Marquee Dayclub Dome at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. This year, we’ve got a stacked lineup for the two-day winter pool party, with two nighttime shows and Dayclub events featuring Andrew Rayel, Ghastly, W&W, Gareth Emery, Sander van Doorn, Carnage and CID.
Join Nigel in his quest to start festival season early at the fifth annual Halfway to EDC, and join thousands of your fellow Headliners at EDC Las Vegas later this summer.
