Presented by Insomniac and Cream, the world-famous dance music festival will return to the UK for an epic two-day party on Saturday, July 12 and Sunday, July 13.

Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) UK promises to be bolder and more spectacular than 2013’s sold-out inaugural event in London.

Organisers will transform iconic outdoor entertainment venue Milton Keynes Bowl into a brand new world.

The festival will feature its signature creative elements including state-of-the-art production and special effects, roaming costumed performers and interactive art installations.

Expect an unrivalled visual experience, as Electric Daisy Carnival UK presents the biggest LED show, never seen before in the UK for one weekend only, and takes pyrotechnics to a whole new level.

The line-up is as impressive as ever, reading like a who’s who of electronic music.

On Saturday, July 12, arguably the biggest and most successful global star of 2013, Avicii, will take over the decks of the Kinetic Field, while house music hero and one of the most prominent acts in the history of electronic music, Steve Angello, will also play.

The bill will also include US electro house star Steve Aoki, plus Nicky Romero, chart-storming Martin Garrix and bombastic brothers Showtek.

Circuit Grounds presents a list of heavyweights on July 12 who epitomise the trance genre.

Undisputed trance master Paul van Dyk travels to Milton Keynes Bowl, alongside the unique Ferry Corsten, progressive head Ørjan Nilsen, captivating Brit Simon Patterson, the multi-talented Ben Gold, and a very special guest appearance from the daddy himself, Paul Oakenfold.

On July 12, Cosmic Meadow represents techno’s leading artists.

Italian techno ambassador and Music On man Marco Carola heads a line-up that includes electronic pioneer Dubfire, house hot property Hot Since 82, figurehead and innovator Davide Squillace and the always-electric Timo Maas.

The UK’s very own Calvin Harris takes to the Kinetic Field stage on Sunday, July 13, along with legend Fatboy Slim.

The unstoppable Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, dancefloor-destroying duo NERVO, Dutch DJ of the moment R3hab and Carnage will also appear.

The focal point of the festival, the Kinetic Field stage will be bigger than ever, with all the out-of-this-world production that can be expected from an EDC event.

The Circuit Grounds stage will be transformed on July 13, hosting some of the leaders and up-and-comers in dance music.

Electro hotheads Blasterjaxx join new-gen DJ Dannic, and chart-topper DVBBS. Dyro brings his breakthrough sounds, wunderkind DJ and producer Julian Jordan appears, Laidback Luke provides unparalleled mayhem, Rebecca & Fiona supply high energy revelry, and Sander van Doorn raises hands.

And on July 13, the Cosmic Meadow stage takes things harder and heavier, with genre-bending turntablist A Trak, BBC Radio 1 bass connoisseur B.Traits with MC Juma, HARD Events head honcho Destructo, moombahton pioneer Dillon Francis, Gorgon City, dynamic electronic mixing duo Jack Beats, moody house outfit My Nu Leng and Shift K3Y drops garage-infused beats.

Expect fireworks, foods from around the world, dancers, performance artists, costumes, sound, light and creative energy.

There will be carnival rides and dramatic décor and fans are encouraged to dress up and make this their most special day.
