Hurricane Nicole impacts Electric Daisy Carnival setup in Orlando day before rope drops

3-day festival set to begin Friday

ORLANDO, Fla. – As communities throughout Central Florida emerge Thursday to assess property damage from Hurricane Nicole, Orlando’s Tinker Field was found to be quite shaken up itself.

Tents, signage and other loose debris could be seen strewn across the space Thursday morning. The venue at the steps of Camping World Stadium has, for weeks now, been scheduled to host the three-day Electric Daisy Carnival music festival, still slated to begin on Friday at the time of this writing.
