(CBS/AP) LAS VEGAS - The Electric Daisy Carnival is moving from the City of Angels to Sin City.

The largest electronic music party in the United States is relocating its towering Ferris wheel, celebrity disc jockeys and pulsating lights from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.

The popular multi-day festival will be held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, a desert site 14 miles from the Las Vegas Strip- a move heralded by Sin City leaders.

World renowned electronic music disc jockeys such as Teisto, David Guetta and Swedish House Mafia will ignite the crowd in this Las Vegas blowout being held on June 24 through June 26.

But critics warn that Las Vegas is ignoring the festival's darker side. A 15-year-old girl died of an Ecstasy overdose after last year's event in L.A. and more than 226 people needed emergency medical treatment.
