Introducing the theme for 2020’s EDC… ✨kineticZEN? In our hyperconnected world, it’s easy to get distracted from making time to care for our minds, our bodies, and things that feed the soul. In 2019, we harnessed the collective intensity of our culture at the kineticFIELD when we debuted kineticENERGY. This year, we celebrate mindfulness with kineticZEN. Anything that fuels our focus and helps us achieve balance is our zen. For some people, that could be dancing, working out, going for a bike ride or a long drive, or just chilling on the beach and taking in a beautiful sunset. I’ve always tried to encourage Headliners to live in the moment and be present. I need reminders myself each day. Life is full of opportunities for reflection, and in those moments we can visualize the world we want to create for ourselves and for each other. I’m grateful and excited to celebrate this next journey with you all. See you soon! ⚡️?❤️ @edc_lasvegas

The 2020 event will feature several EDC veterans including: Alesso, Alison Wonderland, David Guetta, DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, The Chainsmokers and Tiësto.
The new artists joining the EDC fam in 2020 are definitely a reason to go in themselves: 2 = 1 (Dutch duo W&W and Australian DJ-producer-trumpeter Timmy Trumpet) making their U.S. festival debut, SayMyName and 12th Planet taking the stage together for the first time, and Australian drum and bass band Pendulum reunites three members for the North American performance of their new show, labeled “Trinity.”
Not surprisingly, EDC will also feature a number of big-name collabs, including Slander b2b Said The Sky, Afrojack b2b R3HAB, Diplo b2b MK, Dubfire b3b Nicole Moudaber b3b Paco Osuna, Caspa b2b Peekaboo and Rob GEE x Sid of Slipknot.
