Clark County cracking down on EDC ‘party houses’

By Sean DeLancey

A crowd of music lovers will be at the Electric Daisy Carnival in northeast Las Vegas this weekend, and many will be finding a place to stay in the area through the festival.

In previous years, some concertgoers would come from miles away for the multi-stage concert, pushing some of the residents out until the music died down.

Las Vegas locals, David and Krista Richardson, have seen these concertgoers walking along their streets.

“We see a lot of people with strange outfits,” David said. “With hardly anything on.”

“We do see a lot of drunks running around,” Krista said. “They will be in their bathing suits running up to the gas stations.

Those EDC guests are welcome to stay in hotels, as far as Clark County Chief of Code Enforcement Jim Anderson is concerned, but they can’t stay in any form of short-term rentals like an Airbnb.

“It’s a huge neighborhood issue,” Anderson said.

He also said any short-term rentals in unincorporated Clark County is illegal.
