Last Sentence Of Major Figure In EDC Corruption Case Issued

This post was originally published on this site

The last of the sentences in the EDC corruption case has been settled. Last we heard, Pasquale Rotella had reached a settlement for his involvement in the alleged bribery and embezzlement of funds between his company and the L.A. Memorial Coliseum. As we know, Rotella received three years probation and had to fork over a lump sum of $150,000.

Now, former coliseum manager Patrick Lynch has received his sentence from the Superior Court. In the course of the trial, prosecutors were concerned that Lynch served as an integral part of the scheme to divert money from the publicly owned venue to fund his own ventures alongside Todd DeStefano. Lynch pleaded guilty to felony conflict of interest and has already paid $385,000 for restitution and has served 1,500 hours of community service. On top of that, he is also on three years probation. This appears to be the last of the legal proceedings from this case.

2016 saw Alan Walker come out of nowhere with hit, after hit, after hit like “Faded,” then “Sing Me To Sleep,” and now “Alone,” which is surging up the Billboard Dance/Electronic charts. Now, he’s ready to embark on a 14-date run across North and Central America starting in late February.

Pasquale Rotella Previews EDC 2017’s Kinetic Field Stage

This post was originally published on this site

Earlier this week, Insomniac head Pasquale Rotella took to his Snapchat to reveal the first information about the Kinetic Field stage design for the festival’s 21st installment this June. Referred to in a “Kinetic Gaia Storyline” page, the themes and design elements of the forthcoming main stage were revealed.

A “Great Kinetic Hall” is mentioned after the initial, thematic lines, where attendees “can escape everyday life and share stories with other members of the owl community.” In the middle, the passage continues, will be a statue of the Kinetic Gaia. It will hold four compasses that connect with owl communities around the world, perhaps referring to the global live streams seen during last year’s event. There will also be two guard owls on either ends of the stage, the passage says, to “protect the statue of the Kinetic Gaia.”

What the Kinetic Gaia will look like, we can’t yet say. Judging by the language, however, she appears to be a type of all-knowing oracle that will stand as the centerpiece of the epic Kinetic Field set up.

Check out the Snapchat post below, and read the full transcription further down.


“The great Kinetic Hall is the place where the owl community gathers to share their visions and dreams. This is the place where they can escape everyday life and share stories with other members of the owl community. In the middle there is the statue of Kinetic Gaia. The statue holds 4 compasses to locate and connect with owl communities from every part of the world. The two owls guards closing both sides of the stage, are proud and with their heads high up in the air protect the statue of Kinetic Gaia.”

EDC UK announces unexpected cancellation

This post was originally published on this site

EDC UK has been held annually in Milton Keynes since 2013. During its fourth run last year in July, the festival ran into some obstacles which included the death of an attendee and numerous complaints from other guests regarding lack of proper security or medical facilities. As a result, Insomniac Events and the local justice department were set to discuss ways to improve on these aspects in the festival in 2017

Unfortunately, it appears that a solution was not reached. A last-minute announcement on the website somberly states that “Our plans to grow & improve the festival at Milton Keynes had not developed as we had hoped,” and as a result, they will be “indefinitely postpone the show until we can properly re-imagine all areas of the experience.” The announcement also guided ticket holders to a separate page where they could find information on refunds.

Though London might have fallen through for EDC this year, the brand’s expansion remains unstoppable. EDC Mexico continues to gain steam as one of the largest festivals in the country, while November of 2016 saw the its first run in Delhi, India.
