Despite all efforts to make EDC Las Vegas 2021 take place in May 2021, Insomniac Events and founder Pasquale Rotella have announced the festival will, unfortunately, be postponed until October. Initially, Electric Daisy Carnival was set to return to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on May 21, 21, & 23, 2021 to commemorate 25 years Under the Electric Sky.
According to an update from Rotella and Insomniac, EDC Las Vegas 2021 will now take place on October 22, 23, & 24, 2021. In accordance with the city of Las Vegas, the massive festival, which is annually held just miles from the Nevada hot-spot, the Las Vegas Strip, promoters, and Rotella have been working closely with officials in hopes of making the May edition come to life. Read the full statement from Pasquale Rotella, below:
I am sorry to say that EDC Las Vegas needs to move to October. I want to thank everyone who has put their heart and soul into this show—the Insomniac team, artists, agents, managers, production crews, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway staff, the government officials who supported us, and most importantly, you, the Headliners.
As we expected and were assured prior to announcing the festival for May, Nevada state officials announced they would lift social distancing requirements as of May 1, creating a path for EDC to happen with strict safety guidelines in place. We just had a meeting in Las Vegas this past Friday with police, fire, medical, and other agencies involved with EDC to plan out details surrounding the event.
However, today, Clark County (home of EDC & the Las Vegas Motor Speedway) passed a reopening plan that requires 60% of their residents to be vaccinated before restrictions over large-scale gatherings such as EDC can be lifted. Unfortunately, the rate at which people get vaccinated before EDC is out of our control. It might happen in time, it might not. Either way, we can’t take that risk.
Our team has been working around the clock to organize this event. We currently have over 40 trucks en route to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway from all over the country. The lineup is fully booked and was going to be announced tomorrow at 12pm PT. The team and I are heartbroken, as I know many of you are as well. For those who have stayed with us on this journey, I thank you. Your trust & loyalty is what gives us strength to keep moving forward.
The good news is that EDC Las Vegas will still take place on the new dates of October 22-24, 2021. Your ticket will automatically be transferred to the new dates, or you may elect to receive a refund by clicking the link in my bio. If you have already transferred your ticket to 2022, your ticket will also be transferred to the new dates unless you choose to receive a refund.
I continue to believe it’s important we get back out on the dancefloor as soon as possible, and I won’t give up on trying to make that happen. I will be announcing an AMA on Reddit in the near future to address any questions.
Love & Light,
