For now, pre-sale accounts can be made at EDSea.com, where you can sign up to be among the first to purchase a ticket for the first ever EDC concert at sea. If you’re unable to make it this trip, the EDSea website uses the terms “inaugural” in many locations, which leads us to believe this will not be the only trip.
