While Electric Daisy Carnival honcho Pasquale Rotella likes to refer to the hundreds of thousands of EDM fans who descend on Las Vegas for Electric Daisy Carnival as the fest’s headliners, the long and agonizing wait to learn who’ll be performing this year is finally over.

Electric Daisy Carnival 2014 is set to rock the Las Vegas Motor Speedway over the weekend of June 20-22.
Rotella had fans glued to their computers all day after revealing earlier in the month that the lineup was due to arrive on May 27 in an open letter. The anticipation was too much for some to bear, with many begging the EDC CEO to drop the artists scheduled for this year’s event, and even crafting some truly humorous memes in the interim. The lineup was eventually released via a rapid-fire Instagram video. Nightly breakdown via EDM Sauce.
