Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) — one of the world’s largest dance music festivals – will debut in India in November.
The first edition of the two-day music fest will be held here from November 12.
Insomniac, which produces some of the most innovative, immersive music festivals and events in the world, and Only Much Louder (OML – the creators of some popular entertainment festivals like BACARDÍ NH7 Weekender and Stage42) in partnership with Budweiser India is bringing the music fest to India, read a statement from the organisers.
People can expect one of the largest line-ups of international and Indian artistes for the first-ever edition of the Vegas-style festival in India.
Since its inception in 1996, EDC has travelled to various venues across the US (California, Florida, Nevada, New York) as well as other countries including Mexico, Britain and Brazil.
“I finally get to share the news that EDC will find a new home in Delhi, India, this fall,” said Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac.
Rotella added: “Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been fascinated by the country’s colourful and exotic culture. I know it’s a place where the magic of EDC can come alive in a truly unique way, and we’ve got amazing partners in OML and Budweiser who can help make that happen.”
Vijay Nair, CEO of OML, said: “We can’t wait to bring that experience to Indian fans and blow their minds.”
EDC began as a one-day event in Los Angeles, welcoming a crowd of 5,000 dance music lovers in its first year. Over the past 20 years, EDC has grown into a global phenomenon, hosting over 400,000 fans over three days in Las Vegas this past June.
