Throngs of dance music fans are expected to fill Las Vegas this weekend as the three-day Electric Daisy Carnival returns Friday night.

Festival organizer Insomniac expects about 140,000 people to crowd the Las Vegas Motor Speedway each day.

This is the music festival's fifth year in Las Vegas. The event includes a lengthy lineup of DJs performing on elaborate stages amid a carnival-like setting of rides, pyrotechnic displays and art installations.

The Nevada Department of Transportation warns drivers to avoid traveling north on Interstate 15 between Cheyenne Avenue and Speedway Boulevard if they can because of expected traffic delays during the weekend.

The event starts at 7 p.m. each night and ends at 5:30 a.m.
