After windy weather spoiled the second night of the Electric Daisy Carnival, the festival’s producer has offered a compromise to disappointed partygoers.

Insomniac Events announced Sunday that anyone with a Saturday single-day ticket to EDC is “welcome to come back tonight (Sunday) and continue the party with us,” according to a post on EDC’s Facebook page.

Partygoers should bring their Saturday tickets to any entrance, organizers said. Those who no longer have their Saturday tickets should visit the Flavorus will-call tent with their credit cards and valid identifications.

Consultations with public-safety officials led Insomniac Events to order partygoers away from stage areas shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday because of winds that reached 30 mph. Fans were allowed to stay in the infield grass and listen to music from temporary sound systems, but officials closed the gates to new arrivals. As a result, the second night’s attendance maxed out at about 90,000.

The organizers concluded the Facebook announcement by hinting that they still have tricks up their sleeve for the three-day festival.

“We are spending every moment right now creating as many special surprises for you at the festival tonight as we can,” according to the post.

One group, gLAdiator, whose performance was canceled by the weather, has been added to Sunday night's itinerary.

If meteorologists at the National Weather Service are correct, the forecast looks like it will cooperate.

Today’s high temperature was expected to top out at 90 degrees under sunny skies, forecasters said. The low will dip to 65 degrees overnight with winds around 6 mph becoming calm.

EDC wraps up Monday morning — just in time for temperatures to begin an upward climb. Forecasters expect Monday’s high temperature to reach 97 degrees.

  1. When I tried to share this story, the headline on the share said Saturday ticket-holders would get refunds. So, which is it?

  2. The Electric Daisy Carnival revelers who came for Sunday's evening gathering weren't disappointed IF they stayed to watch the awesome and spectacular fireworks display around 2 a.m. Monday morning!!!!

    They were GLORIOUS! The colors of hundreds of fireworks lighting the night skies were totally intense, there were even blue stars outlining the sky! It was a marvelous garden of colors, passionately rocketed into the Earth's atmosphere.

    Glad to be awakened by the thundering sounds to discover such a fantastic early morning delight!

    Blessings and Peace,
