“The stages were insane, it was literally top shelf, the best EDC Orlando to date.” – Brett Napoli, thatDROP Founder
This year was just like EDC Vegas, a little smaller venue but everything else was right on par with the Vegas experience. kinecticFIELD, circuitGROUNDS, neonGARDEN and stereoBLOOM represented a distinct union of technology and nature, where elements mix to ignite the senses and inspire the imagination. Across the four stages, 77 lasers, 74 flame units, and more than 1,600 lighting fixtures and 5,000 video tiles created a mesmerizing visual experience throughout the entire festival. The festival had really great execution, layout and setup.
VIP Headliners were treated to a variety of exclusive amenities during the three-day weekend, including VIP viewing decks, a glitter bar, cotton candy bar, a kandi-making station, complimentary hookah, giant Jenga games, and more.
EDC is expected to generate an economic impact of over $50MM in the city of Orlando, up from $35MM in 2018.
Through their charitable giving arm, Insomniac Cares, Insomniac will also be donating $60,000 to the non-profit group Strengthen Orlando. The donation will enable various HOAs in the West Lakes communities surrounding Tinker Field to beautify their neighborhoods through landscape enhancements, painting homes and other improvements, and further solidifies Insomniac’s commitment to give back to the Central Florida community that has welcomed it since the first EDC Orlando in 2011.
“It has been thrilling to watch Electric Daisy Carnival not only grow through the years, but to thrive as a dance festival attracting people from all around the country and the globe,” Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer told the Orlando Sentinel. “While the event is always colorful, fun and welcoming to everyone, the economic impact continues to benefit our community long after the music stops.”
“Future Owl” tickets are already available for the next meeting you Under the Electric Sky in the Sunshine State: Nov. 13+14+15, 2020.
