Electric Daisy Carnival – aka EDC, the Coachella of EDM – has come under fire after the bottle service menu from their Marquee Skydeck bar was posted to Instagram. 

Prices shown go as high as $94,000 USD ($140,406 AUD) for 12 litres of champagne. Even a mere six-pack of water would’ve set you back $90 ($134). The cheapest alcohol on offer was a six-pack of either Heineken or Bud Light for $140 ($209, which would work out to about $35 per beer).

The comment section on the post was flooded with angry messages, ranging from, “This is pathetic, stop supporting festivals like this,” to, “Bring back $10 local shows,” to, “When did drinks start to be the same prices as festival tickets and cars?”

There is truth to that question – most of the drinks on offer were more expensive than a three-day ticket to EDC itself, which cost $379 USD ($566).

English DJ Fred again.. played a surprise set at this year’s EDC Las Vegas over the weekend, joining the ranks of previous special guests like John Summit and Snoop Dogg.

His appearance comes off the back of announcing the release of USB001 on vinyl.

The global megastar just completed a range of pop-up shows around Australia, selling over 100,000 tickets.
