What to make of the fact that the website for the Electric Daisy Carnival lists music separately from entertainment? Only one way to find out: Hop aboard the 7 train to Citi Field and see for yourself. In its 16th year, EDC brings the biggest artists (and most decadent fans) of dance music to the tri-state area for the second time since the festival’s recent expansion. This year, they’re bringing Dutch house DJs Afrojack and Chuckie, ex-Swedish House Mafioso Steve Angello, “I’m Not Your Toy” singer La Roux, moombahton originators Nadastrom, and many more. Prepare for soaring synths and bass that rattles all the way to Jackson Heights.
