Live Nation offers access to over 90 festivals with exclusive ‘Festival Passport’

This post was originally published on this site

Using a lottery approach to their latest project, Live Nation Entertainment has just announced a never-before seen “Festival Passport” – giving access to over 90 music festivals around the world throughout the rest of 2017. Including massive events like EDC Las Vegas, Creamfields, and Electric Forest, Live Nation will release one thousand exclusive passes May 22 at 10AM Pacific Time. Notably, sold-out events will also be accessible with the passport.

A dream come true for destination festival fanatics, and wanderlust-driven individuals, Live Nation is offering this pass for $799 (not including transportation, accommodation, or airfare). To combat scalpers from acquiring the passes, Live Nation ensures that these all sales will be non-transferable, and must be used by the person who purchased it.

Making this opportunity run as seamless as possible, all the ticket-holder has to do is show up to the event with their Festival Passport, and go to will call with their valid ID to obtain their event wristband. Passports are available for purchase here.

Unofficial shuttles will not be allowed at EDC Las Vegas

This post was originally published on this site

If you were planning on organizing your own independent shuttle to EDC Las Vegas this year, think again.

Traffic in and out of the festival has always been a problem but last year’s bottleneck ended in tragedy. As such, Insomniac is changing its policy for 2017 .

IMPORTANT EDC LAS VEGAS ANNOUNCEMENT: To improve traffic flow to and from the festival, unofficial EDC shuttles will NOT be permitted access to Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Official EDC shuttles are the only shuttles that have access to dedicated and exclusive routes to ensure you will be dropped off at the festival entrance. Shuttle passes go on sale November 28, and can be purchased with your festival pass or through our preferred hotel booking site. Anything available before that date or anywhere else is not an official EDC shuttle.

For anyone headed to the festival, avoid taking any shuttles that aren’t official — they are the only transportation options with access to dedicated and exclusive routes to the festival entrance.

Insomniac officially announces EDC Las Vegas 2017

This post was originally published on this site

As one of the largest electronic music festivals in the world, the anticipation surrounding Insomniac‘s flagship event, Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), is always extremely high come November. It’s now time for headliners all over the world to pencil in the dates and begin planning for yet another magical weekend under the electric sky. EDC will officially return to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Friday, June 16 through Sunday, June 18, 2017.

Last year, Insomniac celebrated the 20th anniversary of the legendary event with completely new — not to mention breathtaking — stage designs for each of its six massive main stages, as well as a number of new smaller stages and features. Always a company to be driving their own innovation every year, the hundreds of thousands of attendees expected to be at the 2017 event will no doubt be treated to nothing short of the world’s best production.

Alongside the event, Insomniac has also confirmed the dates for EDC Week, the week-long series of music and music-related business conferences and talks. The events have yet to be announced, but as expected, every club will be hosting some of the world’s best DJs from Monday, June 12 to Monday, June 19.

Tickets for EDC Las vegas will be on sale beginning November 28, 2016 here.

Insomniac to allow drug education on-site for first time in 10 years

Insomniac Events, the organizer behind massive festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival and Nocturnal Wonderland, is taking new steps to show attendees that raving can be done responsibly. In the midst of a festival landscape that has seen rising hospitalizations, deaths, and arrests, Insomniac has announced a meaningful partnership with the Drug Policy Alliance, or DPA.

It’s been a decade since Insomniac has collaborated with an advocacy group and welcomed on-site drug education. Adding to its significance, the new partnership comes at a time when media has focused more and more on the dangers of electronic music festivals due to illegal substance abuse. In an official statement, Stefanie Jones of DPA’s Safer Partying campaign explained the partnership’s goal: “While Insomniac still has a zero tolerance drug policy and conducts entry searches, they at least acknowledge that more needs to be done to keep their attendees informed and safe.”

‘Project: #OpenTalk,’ the official name of the Insomniac-DPA collaboration, will make educational information on mind-altering substances, sex, and mental health available to festival-goers. Acknowledging the impossibility of eliminating any and all drug use at these events, the aim of providing on-site information is to inspire unbiased conversations amongst attendees that will hopefully decrease the number of drug-related hospitalizations and deaths.

Insomniac’s Halloween event, Escape: Psycho Circus, in San Bernardino, California will serve as the debut location for ‘Project: #OpenTalk.’
