This post was originally published on this site

Insomniac Events’ Electric Forest just concluded its first year as a two weekend event and the brand’s CEO Pasquale Rotella was in attendance to celebrate. While offering his followers a live stream of the event, the creative mastermind revealed that big changes to EDC Las Vegas’ 2018 iteration may be coming sooner than expected.

It’s worth noting that for the first time in years, this past year’s EDC Las Vegas failed to sell out, perhaps triggering the need for Rotella to make some adjustments. Currently under major speculation is the possibility of the festival taking place over Memorial Day weekend or potentially moving to the new Las Vegas Raiders football stadium which is slated for completion before the 2020 NFL season begins.

Regardless of what the changes may have in store, Rotella’s continued commentary on future happenings for the festival indicate that it will likely be a pivotal move for the brand.

Pasquale Rotella is considering new dates for EDC Las Vegas 2018

This post was originally published on this site

Earlier in June, Insomniac Events’ CEO Pasquale Rotella revealed in an Instagram live stream that “big changes” were on the horizon for next year’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.

In a market that is ever changing and expanding, the desire to maintain control, festival experience, and ultimately attendee safety is perpetually pressing. After this year’s unfortunate, presumed heat-related fatality, Rotella has since revealed in an interview with Review Journal that scheduling the festival around the coolest weather is a top priority.

As a result, Pasquale Rotella is reportedly considering moving the event to Memorial Day weekend of 2018, although at this point, nothing as of yet is confirmed.

Last month, K?d played his inaugural EDC set on the Cosmic Meadow stage and the hour-long offering is now live on Soundcloud. The producer’s bass-heavy debut at Las Vegas Motor Speedway includes a mix of originals alongside fresh reworks of Daft Punk, RL Grime, Porter Robinson and more. The soundscapes in K?d’s high energy set range from feel good future bass to the glitchy techno of his collaboration with Rezz, “Fourth Impact.”

Making the debut extra special, the rising artist revealed on Instagram that he attended EDC last year as his “first ever festival.” Over the past year, the young producer has seen a meteoric rise in his career with accomplishments including opening for The Chainsmokers on their Memories… Do Not Open tour and sets at Paradiso, Buku Music & Art Project and Phoenix Lights.

Stay tuned as K?d hits even more festivals this year, including Nocturnal Wonderland and Breakaway Music Festival this September.

Two weeks have passed since the 2017 edition of EDC Las Vegas. While Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella has promised that “big changes” for Electric Daisy Carnival are on the horizon, there is still value in looking back at the most recent run of the festival.

One particularly dedicated Reddit user, operating under the handle /u/stealthyd3vil, has decided to reminisce upon EDC 2017 in an impressive fashion. The Redditor undertook the momentous feat of compiling a playlist of every song played at the festival that is available on Spotify.

Inevitably, the list is incomplete due to the number of unreleased and unidentified tracks which were featured in sets from EDC’s lineup of over 200 artists. However, the end result of /u/stealthyd3vil’s endeavor is a diverse collection which spans over 120 hours across almost 1800 songs, handily making it the most comprehensive way to relive the festival’s soundtrack.

The Essential Mix hits festival season with 5 sets from EDC and Glastonbury

This post was originally published on this site

As June draws to a close and summer officially begins, the de facto “festival season” finds itself in the midst of its peak. In celebration of the ongoing abundance of music festivals around the globe, BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix broadcast a special six-hour episode this weekend, tapping into enviable sets from two of the world’s largest festivals: the British Glastonbury festival and Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival.

For the first three hours of this weekend’s Essential Mix, Radio 1 broadcast three consecutive sets live from Glastonbury’s BBC Music Introducing Stage. UK house mainstays Patrick Topping and Richy Ahmed provide the first third of the Glastonbury coverage, followed by a set from swiftly-ascending Berlin-based DJ Peggy Gou. Rounding out the first half of the Essential Mix’s festival edition, in-demand Glaswegian artist Jackmaster purveys a mix which would prove duly coveted as a standalone episode in the Radio 1 series (as would any of the aforementioned).

For the following 90 minutes, the Essential Mix pivots stateside to rebroadcast a set from one of the most scintillating names that the program has offered in 2017: John Digweed. For his EDC performance, the legendary British artist builds an entrancing sonic journey of progressive house and techno, including freshly-minted music from the likes of Tale Of Us, Maceo Plex, and Victor Ruiz.

The program’s festival marathon finishes up with another 90-minute EDC set from Lee Foss. Coming off of his April debut album, Alchemy, the American artist has been a formidable force in house in techno in recent years, sitting with Jamie Jones at the helm of Hot Creations as well as his own Repopulate Mars imprint. Foss’ EDC show succeeds in showing off his essence of quirky, soulful tech house. Filled with unreleased and unidentified music, the mix is further replete with songs from the likes of CamelPhat and Latmun, and ends fittingly with Jamiroquai’s “Cloud 9.”
