First Responders: Hydration Essential At EDC Despite Lower Temperatures

Paramedics are readying for Electric Daisy Carnival — and attendees must be prepared, too.


The music festival goes down this weekend, May 17 -19 in Las Vegas. Although temperatures will be cooler than in many years past, hydration concerns remain ever-present.

Community Ambulance Director of Special Operations, Glen Simpson, urges EDC attendees to stay hydrated. That means drinking lots of water, and also staying fed while you’re out at the festival.

EDC has been known to take place with temperatures reaching into the 100s. This weekend, the forecast for Las Vegas is looking much cooler, between mid 70s and low 80s. While it might feel more comfortable, you’re still going to be out there for hours and hours dancing, and it’s important to pay attention to what your body is telling you it needs.

If you’re going out to EDC — pace yourself, get plenty of rest, look out for each other — and most importantly, stay hydrated out there.
