Electric Daisy Carnival is officially rescheduled for October.

As first reported by Billboard on Wednesday, the dance music festival formally announced on Friday (April 3) it will move from May 15-17 to Oct. 2-4 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It is one of the world's largest dance music festivals, EDC Las Vegas' original 2020 lineup featured more than 200 artists, including Chainsmokers, DJ Snake, David Guetta and Major Lazer. Details and possible lineup changes for the new dates are forthcoming.

EDC Las Vegas producer Insomniac Events founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella wrote via social media, "The team and I took every single factor into consideration: weather, hotel rates, talent availability, coordination with the Speedway and local officials, and most importantly, a date that would give us enough time for things to get back to normal so we can all come back stronger than ever."

All ticket purchases made for the original festival dates in May will be honored in October, and refunds will be offered for those who cannot attend in the fall.
