Electric Daisy Carnival is more than just a music festival, it is celebration of all things beautiful and the contribution of technology to the natural world. We invite you all to wander the festival grounds and stumble upon our plethora of alluring art installations that have come from all over the nation for you to experience. Come play with our interactive pieces and be amazed by the result of human creativity come to life. This year in Vegas, we will have more art installations than ever before.

BrollyFrock by the Flux Foundation

BrollyFrock is a beautiful installation being built just for Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas. The concept behind the piece is to bring people together in a place of playful shelter. Although umbrellas are a representation of shelter, shade, and protection for humans,  they are often quite isolating. BrollyFrock transcends this isolation and brings umbrellas together, thus bringing people together in a communal experience. It is a completely interactive art installation that reacts to the environment by producing light, shade, mist, and fire. The sculpture consists of over 60 umbrellas and is made entirely of steel. Come experience this beautiful, playful structure and come together as a community through the creativity of the Flux Foundation.
