Gather around gays... it's time to rave!


One of the most inclusive parties in the world is back!

The Electric Daisy Carnival is considered the largest electronic dance music festival in North America and the LGBTQ+ community shines bright every single year.

EDC is famously known for being so accepting of people from all walks of life thanks to the classic rave motto PLUR, which stands for Peace, Love, Unity, and Respect. Plus, many gays love to party... so EDC is like heaven for many in the LGBTQ+ community.

There's even a rainbow road, which is considered the main pathway through EDC. The colors of the road represent the diversity amongst the fans and people that can be seen throughout the festival. Colorful flags, lights and art guide you along your way.

Here's a quick guide to live your ultimate gay fantasy at EDC.

With a roster that includes local Las Vegas talent and stars from RuPaul's Drag Race, Queen Bar is the best place to hang with LGBTQ+ family and allies while watching your favorite queens lip sync, death drop, and tongue pop.

Plus, a slew of sexy go-go dancers dance throughout the room, so your eyes will be blessed as you enjoy the girly pop music that our community loves to hear.

Headliner Coco Montrese gave PRIDE an exclusive quote for this year's festival.

"I'm super excited to be performing at EDC in Downtown EDC at Queen Bar for the fourth year in a row! It's a place where festival goers can stop in. Enjoy your drink and an amazing drag show that runs all festival long. EDC is all about unifying through music and the LGBTQ+ culture is a part of most of the music we celebrate in some way, shape or form. Visibility and acceptance of all is why our presence at EDC is important," Montrese says.

You can easily find a new best friend while checking out this popular destination. Queen Bar is in the heart of Downtown EDC, so it's just one of the many places to check out while hanging out with your fellow rave baes. Other fun spots include a Tokyo karaoke bar and a disco bar.

Talk about an iconic wedding... you can say "I do" at EDC!

Same sex marriage is celebrated every year at the huge festival, which is certainly a sight to see. There's nothing quite like a beautiful couple in our community tying the knot under the electric sky.

I always get a little emotional seeing same sex couples holding hands around the festival grounds and the best part is nobody looks twice. It is truly a safe space for everyone.

I was a little overwhelmed during my first EDC with just how inclusive the culture is. Here's why.

Everybody wears truly whatever they want. You'll see people from all backgrounds dancing to their favorite DJ's at multiple stages. There's staff everywhere that will happily assist you if you're feeling down, lost, or just need some time to relax.

The lineup this year includes David Guetta, Zedd, Galantis, Armin van Buuren, Martin Garrix, Alison Wonderland, just to name a few. It's safe to say there's plenty of opportunities for EDM fans to see their favorite DJ's perform an iconic set or two.

As always, make sure you party safe. Spread love. Have the best weekend of your life!
