He even took the step to release an initial festival map to ensure the sound quality and layout will be better than ever.
Carnival Square, the functional Insomniac Hub for everything from art installations to festival necessities such as Lost & Found, will be making its East Coast debut. Placed in the center of the festival, it makes for an easy meet up spot with tons of activities to keep you busy.
In a statement from Rotella, he explained: “Happy to announce EDCNY returns to Citi Field and back to NYC proper! And YES, we have handled all the issues with layout and sound that didn’t work at this venue in 2013. We live and learn! We’ve got a new festival footprint that will leave more room for the stages, carnival rides, roaming performers, and interactive art installations. It’s gonna be bigger and better than before. Can’t wait to see you all in the Big Apple! 🍎😎🗽🎡”
