Camp EDC, some special news has officially come your way. Insomniac has officially announced their EDC Las Vegas kickoff party for campers. The event will take place on May 15 on the campgrounds, featuring performances from Grammy-nominated Dj-producer, Fisher, and some fresh talent such as Latmun, Little Fritter, Mason Maynard, and Melé.

With various versions of its flagship event spanning a series of locations like Orlando and Mexico, it’s certainly safe to say that Insomniac’s flagship event, Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), has catalyzed an electronic wave of live event activity of seismic proportions following its inaugural iteration in 2010. Nine years later, a new documentary invites electronic music fans to backtrack to 2010 to reflect on the inaugural Electronic Daisy Carnival event.
Released by documentarian Le Liu, “The Last Dance” issues a nod to what were then EDC’s—and by extension, the dance music scene’s—more nascent days. “The Last Dance” devotes its focus to these earlier stages of electronic festival production vis a vis EDC 2010. The documentary explores many facets of the then developing rave culture, including the novel character of a large scale dance event like EDC, and dance music listeners’ warm reception of the first-ever Electric Daisy Carnival affair. “The Last Dance” celebrates EDC’s introductory 2010 installment at the LA Memorial Coliseum as a vibrant and interactive live music experience, through interviews with ravers, news footage, and more.
Hardly limited in its topical scope, “The Last Dance” extends its purview beyond EDC 2010, to encompass mass media’s demonetization of raves following a concurrent spike in MDMA usage, and the establishment of harm reduction groups like DanceSafe. “The Last Dance” is a thought-provoking visual trip down musical memory lane that fondly recalls the birth of Electric Daisy Carnival, while contemplating the different developments within rave culture, as the culture concurrently developed.
We all know and love EDC Las Vegas and what it has become. But, before the festival took over the desert, it was home to Los Angeles, California. In 2010, the death of a 15-year-old attendee caused major changes in how and where the festival operated. The new documentary, “The Last Dance” covers what happened and
EDC Fans, there is something special coming your way this Friday. This is especially special for those who have been going to the iconic festival since its Los Angeles days.

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 Saucebelow:
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.
Wow guys there was a major fire on the maisntage during the beginning of my set at edc Orlando. Had to stop but the team here at edc and the fire deprartment were swift and are doing their best to get the stage up and running. I love you guys. Thankful everyone is safe
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.
Heads up, EDC Florida Headliners. The small fire at kineticFIELD has been contained and we are working with the fire department to make sure everything is safe before the music resumes. Hang tight!
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.
