i guess because they had private lanes for shuttles more people opted for that instead of driving? when i went in 2012 it was a gong show for everything. just stupid shuttle or not.

The drive back on the last day was insane after Dash's set, even with that said I'd still prefer driving over taking shuttle. Driving there wasn't bad either 30-40mins.

Stayed at Vdara last year in one of the panoramic suites, pretty good pricing for like 4 days.

What kinda deals can be had for 7 ppl?

One option is to cram in a room with 2 beds since the majority of time we will be at edc..but I wouldn't mind spending bit more for 2 rooms or even a larger suite.

What have u guys booked so far and $$$?

You might want to look at The Venetian bella suites, 2 queen beds + L shaped sofa couch.

Book a hotel with two people only. Don't tell them how many you will be in there, the extra charges per person are insane. You're technically not going to be sleeping there at night anyways so it's kind of not cheating.

We are tentatively booked with the following:

June 19-24
Flight from YVR = $363 per person
Hotel - Stratosphere Signature room = ($389 + $15 daily resort fee)/4 people per room = ~$100 each

Total flight and hotel = ~$500 CAD
Probably as budget as you can get.

We booked the Stratosphere (expedia.ca) the day after we got our pre-sale tickets because it was a decent hotel with a super cheap sale going on, and they had free cancellation. We ideally wanted to get a house, but I think the hotel price is too cheap to pass up on. We've all done EDC, Vegas, and the pool parties before so we just want to experience all that is EDC, which is perfect since Stratosphere is North of the strip.

We stayed at Vdara in 2012 and the place was unreal! One of the nicest hotels ever; the rooms were a great size with a huge bathroom. The stratosphere is just a dinky room with two queen beds in it. But, you get what you pay for.

Oh, and the best part of the stratosphere is probably the McDonalds in the lobby, haha.

We are leaning towards manadalay bay as well.

For those that have been..are the first 2 nights of edc the best? If we only wanted to go 2 of 3 nights, would it be advisable to skip the Sunday?

Also, buddy has 2 extra tickets that people backed out on. He might let them go for a bit cheaper since tickets aren't sold out. Pm me for contact info

^really tough to say. you would have to see the line up and pick who you want to see. I didnt notice any change in the atmosphere from Fri to Sunday. Saturday will for sure be the bigger day tho.

Yes they do!

If you're taking the shuttle home, I recommend not staying til the VERY VERY end of each night, the line ups get longer and longer the later you go. (Which sucks, cause some of the later shows are really really good!! So you pick what's worth it to you). And make sure you find a shuttle that's has a stop at or CLOSEST to your hotel that you're staying at : )

i don't recommend the shuttle.

we paid a taxi driver $80 each way to take us there and wait for us to take us back. ended costing $80*2*3 = $480 for the 4 of us. that's $120 each compared to the $90 for shuttle passes.

it only took us approximately 30 minutes to get there and back each trip. our friends had to wait an hour to get on the shuttle and another hour or so on the bus each trip.

when they pick you up from the speedway, make sure they dont go into the cab line. tell him to wait 50 meters away and you just sneak right by the line. also make sure you plan ahead, eg. "meet us outside the cab line, near the toilets at 6:10am. I'm wearing a white tank and blue shorts"
