Electric Daisy Carnival's 10th Las Vegas edition hasn't been postponed or canceled … but the chances of the festival taking place on its planned May 15-17 weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway certainly seem to be fading as the Valley shuts down—and events around the world push back—amid the coronavirus pandemic.

While ticketholders await further news on that front, promoter Insomniac has launched a YouTube channel, on which it has begun airing sets from its past festivals, including the five most recent EDC Vegas installments, EDC Orlando, EDC Mexico, HARD Summer and Okeechobee Festival. The content, which will also include new episodes of Insomniac's Gold Cart Confessions interview series, will run 24 hours a day through March 31.

The Insomniac channel will also host a Virtual Rave-A-Thon, featuring fresh live DJ sets, Friday, March 20 and Saturday 21, from 8 p.m. to midnight Vegas time.
