This year marks the 20th anniversary of Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival, and some familiar faces will be returning to the main stages in Las Vegas on June 17-19.

Kaskade, Hardwell, Tiesto and Zedd are among the EDM heavyweights who are topping the bill this year at America’s largest multi-day music festival. Other top-tier acts include Swedish House Mafia alums Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Martin Garrix, Eric Prydz and DJ Snake.

Also notable for L.A. fans: Pop crossovers the Chainsmokers will play fresh off their gig with Ariana Grande and Zayn at Wango Tango; trance act Above & Beyond will follow up their Hollywood Bowl acoustic show with a gig as well. EDC will also be introducing some significantly longer set times for the 20th anniversary occasion.

For fans of vintage techno and more underground sounds, Juan Atkins, Nicole Moudaber, Derrick May, Richie Hawtin and Maya Jane Coles will add some rougher edges; vibier acts like Tycho, Duke Dumont, Lane 8 and SNBRN will add some more wistful elements.

The lineup announcement comes at a transitional time for Insomniac -- San Bernardino is considering banning raves at the San Manuel Amphitheatre, which would complicate their annual Nocturnal Wonderland and Beyond Wonderland events. But Insomniac also debuted a new downtown L.A. warehouse series, Factory 93, to big crowds over the weekend.

General admission tickets are already sold out, but some VIP passes and packages are still available.
