Big news in the EDM world… The Electric Daisy Carnival that takes place every year in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway has been POSTPONED.
Founder and CEO of Insomnia, Pasquale Rotella, states, “Clark County (home of EDC & the Las Vegas Motor Speedway) passed a reopening plan that requires 60% of their residents to be vaccinated before restrictions over large-scale gatherings such as EDC can be lifted. Unfortunately, the rate at which people get vaccinated before EDC is out of our control. It might happen in time, it might not. Either way, we can’t take that risk… I am sorry to say that EDC Las Vegas needs to move to October…”
Steve Sisolak stated in a press conference that Nevada has the highest vaccination numbers and on June 1st, we will be heading back to our “new normal” with 100% capacity continuing with social distancing and a mask mandate.
The EDC community has been working incredibly hard to make this happen, but it is out of their control.
Pasquel states, “I want to thank everyone who has put their heart and soul into this show—the Insomniac team, artists, agents, managers, production crews, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway staff, the government officials who supported us, and most importantly, you, the Headliners.
The EDC community was ready…
Pasquel states, “We were assured prior to announcing the festival for May, Nevada state officials announced they would lift social distancing requirements as of May 1, creating a path for EDC to happen with strict safety guidelines in place… Our team has been working around the clock to organize this event. We currently have over 40 trucks en route to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway from all over the country. The lineup is fully booked and was going to be announced tomorrow [April 21] at 12pm PT. The team and I are heartbroken, as I know many of you are as well. For those who have stayed with us on this journey, I thank you. Your trust & loyalty is what gives us strength to keep moving forward.
Future of EDC…
Pasquel states, “The good news is that EDC Las Vegas will still take place on the new dates of October 22-24, 2021. Your ticket will automatically be transferred to the new dates, or you may elect to receive a refund… If you have already transferred your ticket to 2022, your ticket will also be transferred to the new dates unless you choose to receive a refund.”
