Live Nation increases security measures in wake of Manchester bombing

This post was originally published on this site

In wake of the bombing in Manchester last weekend at an Ariana Grande concert, Live Nation has increased its security measures in hopes of preventing future catastrophes.

A notice issued to venues reads as follows:

“Due to enhanced security procedures, no bags or backpacks will be permitted into the venue except for small personal bags or purses (12″x12″x6″ max) or clear 1 gallon bags. All bags will be subject to a search. We encourage you to not bring in any bag whatsoever and make use of the express ‘no bag’ lanes.”

The statement was originally posted on Sasquatch Music Festival’s Facebook wall, but it has since been hidden. The extent of the new guidelines and how they will affect individual festivals has yet to be seen.

Live Nation is the company behind some of the country’s biggest festivals, such as EDC Las Vegas, Electric Forest, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and more.

Get a sneak peek at EDC’s mainstage design and stream schedule

This post was originally published on this site

Though EDC Las Vegas is still a month away, their tireless event team is likely already working in overdrive to generate the jaw dropping production for which the festival is known. Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella shared a preview of what is likely the kineticFIELD main stage design via Instagram, teasing fans with a first look at the Gaia theme which will dominate the visuals this year.


Insomniac also revealed details for this year’s live stream which will be hosted exclusively on Red Bull Media House across two channels. Though the schedule has yet to be announced, the partners have announced streams will go live from 11:30PM EST to 8:30AM EST during the festival weekend, June 16-19 on the Red Bull TV app as well as online at Red Bull’s EDC hub.

“To be able to share EDC Las Vegas with millions of fans around the world is an incredible feeling,” said Rotella of the venture. “With Red Bull TV as our partner, we’re able to bring the energy and magic of EDC to a new audience. We hope to inspire them to join us one day by giving them a glimpse of an amazing experience.”

Insomniac Founder Pasquale Rotella Dishes On EDC Las Vegas’s New Stage, Kineticfield + More

This post was originally published on this site

Since its move to Las Vegas back in 2011, Electric Daisy Carnival has quickly risen to become one of the country’s, and the world’s, flagship EDM festivals. They’ve become so successful in fact that they’ve continued expanding globally with events across the globe including their recently launched EDC Japan.

Speaking to the Las Vegas Review-JournalInsomniac Events founder Pasquale Rotella looked back on how far the festival and EDC brand had come since moving their flagship event to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway while revealing some new details for the upcoming EDC 2017.

Right off the bat, it looks like the flagship main stage kineticFIELD will be completely reimagined for the upcoming event and modeled on the Greek goddess of the Earth, Gaia. Rotella also mentioned there would be a big new surprise for festival-goers but opted not to go into the details, merely adding that he wants “people to have that ‘wow’ moment when they walk in.”

Speaking of stages, he also revealed that there would be a new stage which would reflect a genre of music that had been rapidly growing in the United States over the last several years. Perhaps he could be referring to a brand new future bass stage? In case you’re wondering, Rotella won’t be raising the capacity to accommodate the brand new stage, and presumably new fans, so we’ll be curious to see how they manage to pull that off logistically.

Speaking on the artists, Rotella was also pleased to add that not only was the line “99 percent done,” but that they had added “artists we’ve never, never had before” which should surely be some exciting news for festival-goers.

Lastly, he also addressed the question of expanding to two weekends, which he’s previously considered. “I’ve considered lowering the capacity to do two weekends, to alleviate some of the traffic challenges. I’ve also considered keeping it on one weekend but changing the time of year so that we can do camping, kind of like they do at NASCAR, so that there’s not this influx each night. It’s been considered.”

Whether or not they decide to move towards two weekends or consider camping at all there’s definitely a lot of exciting news sure to be announced in the coming weeks so stay tuned for all that!
