With 2020's edition of EDC in Las Vegas last month selling out in a record time of just two days, organisers have now launched a waiting list to allow those who missed out a chance to get their hands on a ticket for next year's event.
One reason for EDC 2020 selling out so quickly was the introduction of the lawaway scheme which allowed hopeful attendees to get their hands on a ticket via a deposit scheme. It's expected that some of those that staked a claim on a ticket for next year's festival will not finish paying off their ticket, and these tickets will ultimately be cancelled and made available again to those registered on the waiting list.
"The waitlist is here to let us know you are interested in attending an event after the tickets have sold out," a post by EDC announcing the launch of the waiting list said. "In the event tickets become available, they will be issued to people on the waitlist on a first come first served basis."
The post clarifies that tickets will be made available if a ticket holder does not make their payments on time or they simply decide they can no longer attend.

EDC Las Vegas tents were recently sent to the Bahamas to help shelter storm victims while the festival's organiser, Insomniac, also set up a donation programme to help benefit victims of the storm.
