From the long-standing scene overseas to the rich underground culture in places such as Detroit, techno has called several different places home. For the first time in musical history, though, it’s finding an unlikely host in glitzy, glittering Las Vegas. Surprisingly enough, event teams are beginning to find that Vegas loves techno. This year’s Electric Daisy Carnival week in Vegas will feature a lineup of some of techno and house’s leading names, including John Digweed, Sasha, Carl Cox, Claude Von Stroke, Dubfire, UMEK, and Mark Knight. Beginning Thursday June 20, the aptly titled ‘Las Vegas Loves Techno’ is set to take place in super-clubs Lavo and Marquee. “We feel like the fan base here in Vegas is really maturing and becoming open to a more diverse brand of dance music. We’re excited to be presenting a lineup of true legends in the genre that pushes the envelope in Las Vegas,” says Morgan Deane, director of marketing for Marquee Nightclub and Dayclub. It’s a trend we’ve been seeing throughout the states in nightlife capitals such as Miami and Los Angeles. While this is the first time something of this scope has been attempted in Vegas’ market, we applaud the effort and enthusiasm in bringing something different to the table. Check out the amazing lineup above, and check out the official websites of Lavo, Marquee, and Electric Daisy Carnival for details!
