After Insomniac‘s first major international jump across the pond with 2013′s sold-out summer debut of EDC London, Pasquale Rotella hinted that more international venues would soon be targets for the EDC franchise. Today, in partnership with OCESA, Insomniac has announced their latest addition to EDC stops around the world – the first ever Electric Daisy Carnival Mexico. Heading south of the border from March 15th to 16th, EDC Mexico will take root in the Hermanos Rodriguez Racetrack in Mexico City. The first round of tickets will go on sale here on December 17th at 11 AM CST.
Stay tuned for further details and line up announcements to come.
Initial reports hinted at a possible Woodstock 1994 location for Pasquale Rotella’s iconic festival brand but after the owners of the farm felt uncomfortable hosting the event, Electric Daisy Carnival New York found its home back where it began — New Jersey’s Met Life Stadium.
A slow but steady build up of announcements regarding the upcoming Electric Daisy Carnival documentary has created a strong buzz of anticipation for the public release. “Under the Electric Sky” is set to be a full-length feature film following the adventures of several attendees, or “headliners,” as they congregate for the three-day festival in Las Vegas.
Following up on the announcement that Kaskade would score the film, today Pasquale Rotella shared more optimistic news: “Under the Sky” has been chosen as one of the 118 films selected to be screened at the Sundance Film Festival held in January 2014. Rotella took to his Facebook page to extend his success with the rest of the EDC family: “I am humbled by such a prestigious honor and cannot wait to show the whole world how incredible our community is! Headliners, these are YOUR stories, this film is a celebration of you!”
The Discovery Project was always a fun project that gave aspiring artists the opportunity to showcase their talents quite literally on the grandest of stages – at Insomniac events. This year with Motorola’s help, the program will reach new heights, and this is one opportunity you do not want to miss.
The White Wonderland Discovery Project is looking for a DJ/producer to grace its stages this year, and that is not all. Laidback Luke (known for his dedication to education) will be the Moto X Mentor who will spend an afternoon guiding the lucky but skilled winner, a perfect way to ring in the new year.
Furthermore, this contest is no longer regulated to a musical contest. Later this year, art installations, costume design , and set design competitions will all be a part of the Discovery Project program as this becomes a platform to highlight creatives artists, and not just musicians.
There is only one week left in the competition, so enter here to get your chance of a lifetime.
Following the release of the Electric Daisy Carnival 2014 trailer, Insomniac announced that any headliners who had attended previous iterations of the event would be eligible for an exclusive “Headliner Loyalty” pre-sale program that would grant them early access to tickets before the official sale date. On November 25th, this pre-sale was opened up to Insomniac’s loyal fans. The program also allowed fans to purchase their tickets through Insomniac’s tiered pricing system, resulting in some confusion as numerous fans reported different final costs. Always outspoken and available to Insomniac customers, Rotella took to his Facebook to calm any fears and explain the pricing issues
Those unable to snag their tickets through the loyalty program can purchase them during the “Early Owl” purchase period set for December 2nd. Tickets for the three-day event will cost $345 plus fees during this time.
