The moment EDC Las Vegas fans have been waiting for has finally arrived. As of publication time, 6:00pm Pacific on March 26, Insomniac Events owner Pasquale Rotella is unveiling the iconic festival’s lineup via EDC’s official Facebook stage. Listen closely to each of the tracks being played; they hold the key to who will be making an appearance come May 17.

Each year of EDC builds upon its last, with the festival drawing in hundreds of thousands of dance music aficionados to the Las Vegas speedway for a celebration under the electric sky. In the past, notable acts like Martin Garrix, Bassnectar, Armin van Buuren, Mat Zo, and many more have played across its multiple stages, and this 2019’s billing is looking to mirror the quality the festival brings to the table in its curation.

EDC’s full lineup will be revealed on March 27 at 10am PST.

Who better than Bill Nye to inaugurate this year’s kinetic energy-themed EDC Las Vegas than a true modern-day Renaissance man, TV personality, and unequivocal “Science Guy” himself? Nye and Insomniac Founder/CEO Pasquale Rotella will convene Friday, May 17 under the Electric Sky for the world-revered electronic fest’s Opening Ceremony at the cosmicMEADOW stage.

“Think of the potential,” says Nye in a recent EDC release. “Hundreds of thousands of people moving their
bodies, freeing their minds, and dancing to music under the glow of spectacular light. We’ll convert all this potential to a carnival of kinetic energy!”

The EDCLV 2019 will run May 17-19, at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway: the immaculately curated festival’s home since 2011. Headliners have yet to be announced, though last year’s front runners included Armin van Buuren, ZeddTiësto, Kaskade, and Tchami, just to name a few.

With an official Science Guy stamp of approval, electricity isn’t likely to be in short supply in Vegas this spring. Tickets to EDCLV are available here.

Insomniac continues on toward world dominance with ALDA merger

Insomniac continues on toward world dominance with ALDA mergerJake West For Insomniac Events 3 Min

What was once a renegade party in LA’s underground is now on the path to rivaling Ultra at the top of the dance music food chain. Pasquale Rotella has been steadily increasing his brand Insomniac‘s reach through both massive and boutique festivals across the United States, and is now moving toward the next step in becoming a global power with a 50% acquisition of the Dutch company ALDA. They’ve just finalized the deal, with the two brands moving forward as one to expand their reach and offer the best festival experience possible to fans.

ALDA has earned its stripes over the years as a leader in the European sphere, putting on events like A State Of Trance, New Horizons, and Electronic Family as well as events in 30 countries. Paired with Insomniac’s resources and both companies’ expertise in event organization, one can expect to see Insomniac’s international profile grow far beyond their current holdings. “We are thrilled to enter into this partnership with the Insomniac family. Pasquale and his team are true innovators when it comes to creating and executing festivals and music events. It has been our goal to provide dance lovers with high quality musical experiences, and Pasquale encourages this vision,” stated ALDA CEO and co-founder Allan Hallenberg of the merger.

Though Insomniac is likely to pick up some of ALDA’s edge in throwing events and applying it to their operation, ALDA will continue to operate as its own company across the pond.

Insomniac announces video game-themed music festival, PLAYInsomniac Play Festival

Year after year, festivals around the world increase their attractions more and more. The majority of the world’s biggest festivals don’t just offer music performances — they’re also at the forefront of entertainment, art, and cultural events. Looking to widen their scope even further is Insomniac, who just announced their inaugural interactive music and gaming experience: PLAY Festival.

Debuting in 2019, the festival’s founders promise “a slew of vibrant, immersive and exclusive experiences through multidimensional arenas that will allow fans to test their skills and challenge others in several gaming and arcade realms.” In their announcement, they revealed that some of the industry’s biggest names in hip-hop and dance music will serve as a “backdrop” for the attendees (“Players”) while they move from place to place throughout the festival. The event will also feature gaming competitions from top eSports gamers, musicians, and athletes.

Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella notes the similarities between the gaming and dance communities, citing their “inclusive nature” and “passion for total creative immersion.”

“PLAY Festival is an opportunity to connect these two colorful worlds and build an event that’s exciting, authentic, and inspires a new generation of fans,” he says in the festival’s announcement.

While no official date or location for the festival has been revealed yet, those interested can learn more on Insomniac’s site and follow the festival’s social media accounts to stay up to date.
