2019 promises to be a banner year of production for Electric Daisy Carnival‘s (EDC) East Coast arm in Orlando, as the staple of the Sunshine State festival circuit unveils its largest lineup yet.

The event will bring a broader selection of electronic talent to Tinker Field from November 8-10 as it expands from a two- to a three-day dance affair to accommodate its voracious following. Jam-packed with the genre’s most acclaimed artists, EDC Orlando’s 2019 lineup features 3LAU, ZHU, Kaskade, Habstrakt, Diplo, DJ Snake, CamelPhat, Gorgon City, just to name a few from the star-spangled roster. More than 20 artists will make their timely Orlando debut, including ANNA, FISHER, Nora En Pure, i_o, and San Holo, among others.

An array of stage takeovers further diversifies EDC Orlando’s agenda. Adam Beyer and Green Velvet will curate branded talent for their Drumcode and La La Land demonstrations, respectively. Dreamstate will meanwhile cater to the trance enthusiasts in attendance, while Bassrush, LA’s Factory93, and Insomniac Music Group will assemble their own aural armies across their takeovers. The mau5trap crew is more than likely to further the trademarked fun with a band of We Are Friends envoys.

Passes to EDC Orlando’s 2019 chapter are now available here.

Insomniac is now a majority owner of Miami’s iconic Club Space

Worldwide events powerhouse Insomniac have announced it has acquired an ownership stake in legendary Miami dance music institution Club Space.

All current management and operations of Space will remain the same, but this partnership will ensure the revered club, known for its days-long parties, will have a long-standing future in a market that is seeing many clubs of similar status being closed, including Brooklyn’s Output and Denver’s Beta.

“Space is one of the most iconic dance music venues in the US if not the world, and I’m excited that Insomniac is now a partner,” says Insomniac founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella. “Davide, Coloma and Sinopoli have done an exceptional job revitalizing this venue to be better than it’s ever been. They are passionate people that care about creating experiences, and share the same core values that Insomniac lives by. The Space Invaders team will still be running the show and together we will set the bar for entertainment in Miami. Space is another important piece of the Insomniac vision coming together.”

“The Space Invaders” to which Rotella is referring are Davide Danese, Coloma Kaboomsky, and David Sinopoli who took over management of Space in 2016. Since their arrival, the club has been completely revitalized, offering some of the most memorable parties in the US.

From Dirtybird‘s epic annual takeover during Miami Music Week, to marathon extended sets from Dixon and a slew of other veteran selectors, Club Space maintains one of the strongest reputations in Miami. Now with Insomniac, the scope of their parties will only expand.

“Our Space Invaders team is excited about this partnership with Insomniac,” says Sinopoli. “We have admired their work for a while now, and over the past year have gotten to know everyone on their team. They are young, creative, and most importantly, their focus is on constantly working to provide the best possible experience for their guests.

“We have worked tirelessly over the past three years to renew the energy inside Club Space and maintain a calm, safe environment while curating a space where people can enjoy a wide range of entertainment. Our Space Invaders team will continue to book the music and operate the club exactly as we have been. We believe that through this relationship with Insomniac we can continue to grow and secure our home at Space with a partner who has an aligned vision of the future of the Miami music scene.”

While Ultrais certainly still the event most synonymous with Miami— especially now that the festival’s contract with Bayfront Park is renewed— Insomniac’s presence has been growing in Florida as of late. With Live Nation at their back, Insomniac managed a sold out EDC Orlando 2018 and will expand the event to three days in 2019. It will be the first three-day EDC ever hosted outside of Las Vegas. Now with Insomniac’s ownership of Club Space, the company has is successfully cementing itself in one of the country’s most beloved party meccas.

Dillon Francis and Alison Wonderland release long-awaited ‘Lost My Mind’ days before kicking off joint tourDillon Francis Alison Wonderland 1

Dillon Francis and Alison Wonderland are nearing their co-headlining tour, and fans can finally listen to the title track of the tour—a long-awaited collaboration between the two titled, “Lost My Mind.” The track is out now via Francis’s label, IDGAFOS. A mixture of punching vocals weaving in and out of catchy notes build anticipation as electronic layers heighten the tune’s intensity. Eventually, “Lost My Mind,” spirals into a dirty bass drop, releasing the pent up energy the two producers culminate in the intro.

Dillon Francis took to social media to explain how he and Alison Wonderland managed to link with one another, forming an unlikely bond over Croatian football. Eventually, the friendship would blossom into a collaboration and a full fledged tour to boot.

Lost My Mind w @alisonwonderland is out now and there’s a pretty good backstory to how the song came about… The World Cup was happening and Croatia was heading to the finals (if you didn’t already know i’m half Croatian/Serbian) I think it was the game against London where I was tweeting about them and a fan noticed that Alison was too (Alison is Croatian as well)… A BOND WAS INSTANTLY MADE we were rooting for our little country who were the biggest underdogs ever in the World Cup… Croatia made it to the finals against France so Alison and I made a deal on twitter “if Croatia wins we make a happy song if they lose we make a sad angry song” the latter of the two happened and we started working. This song was so fun to make because we immediately had ideas bouncing back and forth where my idea would give her a better one & vice versa… fast forward to now and here it is! The bond we discovered from our little country turned into a full-fledged song & tour which I think is fucking incredible.. hope you enjoy. Croatia zauvijek Link in bio

Both artists teased the release during their respective sets at EDC Orlando in 2018, and the full track has certainly proven to be worth the wait. It’s clear that Francis is returning to his harder roots after taking a brief bass break to produce his Latin-inspired moombah album, WUT WUTwhich nabbed him a Latin Grammy nomination at the tail end of last year. Francis and his Aussie counterpart will be kick off their joint tour in Madison, Wisconsin on January 31. Check “Lost My Mind” in full below.

Breaking: EDC Orlando’s main stage catches fire on second night [Video]EDC Orlando 2018 2

Today, November 10, as the Orlando installation of Electric Daisy Carnival in Tinker Field entered into its second night, a fire brought festivities to a temporary halt. Bass music producer Kayzo had recently begun his set on the Kinetic Fields stage when a fire erupted on the top right corner of the structure, as seen in video footage captured by a writer for EDM Sauce below:

Orlando Sentinel reports that the fire was caused when pyrotechnic effects ignited a portion of the screen display, at which point the DJ cut his set short.

Orlando Fire Department spokesperson Ashley Papagni states that the fire was contained upon OFD’s arrival, the Sentinel reports. In a tweet, Insomniac head Pasquale Rotella reiterated this statement, encouraging fans that the show would resume once the conditions are confirmed to be fully safe to do so.

No evacuation has been ordered, and Papagni told the Sentinel that no injuries have been reported. Kayzo is set to play another set at the venue’s Corona Beach Stage later in the night, as well as an afterparty for the event.
