Where to Stay for EDC

Where you stay for EDC Vegas 2020 is entirely up to you and your comfort level!

While some opt to camp for the authentic experience, others prefer to stay in hotels or Airbnbs nearby.

All are great options – just make sure you book early.

Here are the featured hotels that Insomniac has currently teamed up with for the event (and they plan to add more soon!).

When you come for EDC, you’ll enjoy free parking, exclusive headliner-pricing, and discounted resort fees.

If you’re looking to stay in an Airbnb, you’ll want to optimize its location to the venue: Las Vegas Motor Speedway, 7000 N. Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89115.

EDC is offering free shuttles, which offers you direct access to the festival gates and aims to reduce the number of cars on the road.

The location and routes of both their premier and standard shuttles are expected to be released soon.

You can also drive and park yourself. However, if you choose to do this, please make a conscious choice and carpool with friends to the event.

Follow all directions provided by EDC to ensure smooth arrivals and departures.

Finally, there is also the option to purchase a camping pass. You can either book camping accommodations directly with EDC in a “shiftpod” or bring your own set up with an RV.

Campers get access to a bustling hub of entertainment, activities, and amenities that make this authentic accommodation all the more fun.

Getting to EDC from the Strip

If you need some tips to planning a Vegas trip, we’ve got you covered! Once you arrive in Vegas, you’ll need to know how to get there from the Strip, the central most part of Sin City.

EDC works hard to ensure that you don’t get lost. While it might be your instinct to just plug the address into Google Maps, that’s not the best way to get there.

You’ll want to follow the specific directions that the site provides from wherever you are originally.

You can drive yourself if that’s most comfortable but consider the shuttle option that will help minimize travel and confusion.
