All of two days have passed since we shared with you the news that, yes, the Electric Daisy Carnival will be returning to Dallas this summer with yet another impressive bill, and, already, we've got some news of a competing festival coming to the region.
The touring ID Festival, which will be stopping through 20 North American cities this summer, announced late yesterday afternoon that it, too, will be coming to Dallas this summer. No word yet on a location for the event (Gexa Energy Pavillion, maybe?), but the ID Festival, with its baller EDM bill (see the above infographic courtesy of ID's site), has confirmed via its website that it will be touring through Dallas on Sunday, August 28.
