SUNNYVALE, Calif.--()--Insomniac and Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) announced that this year’s eagerly awaited Electric Daisy Carnival, Las Vegas will live stream exclusively on Yahoo, June 19-21, 2015. The stream, presented by 7UP, will air the 19th annual event live from 8:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. PT each night, and will rebroadcast immediately following, bringing a taste of North America’s largest single weekend music festival into the homes of millions.

The EDC Las Vegas Live Stream on Yahoo will allow fans to experience the excitement of the festival as it spans over 200 acres of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, featuring eight new stages, dozens of art installations and carnival rides, 500 theatrical performers, as well as special moments at the EDC Wedding Chapel and behind-the-scenes golf cart confessionals with the world’s favorite DJs. Fans who tune-in early will be the first to hear exciting announcements on the EDC Las Vegas Live Stream on Yahoo.

“As we bring one-of-a-kind live music experiences to fans on Yahoo, 7UP’s focus on dance music made them the perfect partner and presenting sponsor for our first live stream of EDC Las Vegas,” said Lisa Utzschneider, SVP, Sales, Americas at Yahoo. “This music festival has a very passionate fan base, and we’re working with 7UP to connect them with their customers around this truly unique music experience on Yahoo.”

Yahoo will connect 7UP with music fans around the live stream of EDC Las Vegas on Yahoo.com/EDC, the Yahoo Screen App on iOS and Android, and connected devices including Apple TV, Roku and Xbox. For the first time, fans will also be able to create personalized schedules with their favorite artists and receive real time notifications when their favorite DJs take the stage through a new experience from Yahoo and 7UP on Tumblr, the EDC Dream Stream. Additionally, 7UP will once again host their own stage at EDC Las Vegas, Stage 7. The fan-favorite area will return for three more days of amazing music and atmosphere this weekend.

“As Insomniac continues to evolve and grow experiences tied to EDC Las Vegas, we are thrilled to be presenting this year’s live stream for the second straight year,” said Eric Blackwood, Director of Marketing, 7UP. “Tapping into the array of properties that Yahoo has and leveraging their massive reach, we couldn’t have asked for a better way to invite fans who can’t attend to take part in the excitement that is EDC Las Vegas.”
