The Twitter view of last night’s Electric Daisy Carnival shutdown


Andrea Domanick

The 2012 Electric Daisy Carnival is shut down the early morning hours of Sunday, June 10, 2012, due to high winds and safety precautions at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

EDC Las Vegas ‏@EDC_LasVegas Due to high winds, we are temporarily halting all entry to @EDC_LasVegas. Fans inside, head to the grand stands. This is for your safety.

Paris Hilton ‏@ParisHilton Why is the wind ruining our #EDC? So sad, having the most incredible time during @CalvinHarris's set & the fire marshalls shut it down! :=(

EDC Las Vegas ‏@EDC_LasVegas Entry to @EDC_LasVegas is now closed. For fan safety we will not be permitting any more entries due to weather conditions.

Armin van Buuren ‏@arminvanbuuren So @MarkusSchulz and I are playing b2b in the radiostudio behind the stage #ASOTLV #EDC @SiriusXM @difm

EDC Las Vegas ‏@EDC_LasVegas Fans inside the festival may stay temporarily. No primary stages will reopen, art car stages are being set up for temporary entertainment.

Tiësto ‏@tiesto Mother nature struck @EDC_LasVegas tonight...We love to party but safety first...I hope y'all still have a great wknd!!

Armin van Buuren ‏@arminvanbuuren Insomniac is doing this for everyone's safety, we don't want anyone to get hurt from possible falling objects #EDC #ASOTLV

.Yezenia Garcia.♥[; ‏@oneheart0nel0ve Sooo....They Shut Down #EDC Due To "Dangerous" Wind Conditions...Lame. &Now We're Stuck In A Sea Of Cars

Paris Hilton ‏@ParisHilton Flying thru the sky via helicopter with my best friend @HurricaneCari. No traffic for us! #YES! #LovingLife

Tiësto ‏@tiesto I am sure @EDC_LasVegas and I will try to make it up to you guys ASAP!! I wish we could control the weather but we can't...#safetyfirst

Steve Aoki ‏@steveaoki Deeply saddened I didn't get to rock w/ @bluemangroup tonite but happy I got to do a set w/ the die hards at 4am! I love u! Goodnight!

Keon Smith ‏@HollywoodKazz_ We'll never know how the Aoki x Blue Man Group performance was supposed to go.

Armin van Buuren ‏@arminvanbuuren Thanks guys! That ends one of the most bizarre nights in my life. See you tomorrow for part 2 of #EDC #ASOTLV

Pablo ‏@pablopantojaq @PasqualeRotella while I understand that safety comes first, it is disappointing structures werent built to withstand all types of weather.

Pasquale Rotella ‏‏@PasqualeRotella @pablopantojaq we don't skimp on production. We built the strongest temporary stages avail. It was still not safe enough

Insomniac Events ‏‏@insomniacevents EDC Day 3 will continue as scheduled. Day 2's decision was a safety precaution for our fans.

Pasquale Rotella ‏‏@PasqualeRotella I'm upset & sorry 4 last night but nothing is more important than your safety. Severe gusts of wind & 90 ft stages aren't a good combo

El Guapo @MacDeas #edc #daytwo #refund!
