Insomniac and partners GMO Internet Group, Creativeman and Live Nation Japan announced the first ever Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) Japan, bringing a one of a kind music festival experience to the vast Zozo Marine Stadium and Makuhari Beach on Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30, 2017. EDC Japan marks the festival’s 5th international destination, next taking place on Tokyo Bay. Festivalgoers from across Asia will be able to witness firsthand the awe-inspiring production and creativity that has made EDC a global phenomenon. Early bird tickets for the highly anticipated event will be available while supplies last, from Thursday, December 8 at 7 PM PT to Friday, December 9 at 11 PM PT, here. Information on the general pre-sale will be announced soon.

“Dance music has become a global phenomenon that we are fortunate enough to share with our EDC communities around the world in India, Mexico, and the UK,” said Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac. “Taking EDC to Japan has been a goal that’s years in the making, and I can’t wait to deliver something really special in 2017.”

EDC is a globally renowned dance music festival and the largest brand in Insomniac’s scope of events and productions. EDC began in 1997 in Los Angeles with a small crowd of dance music lovers, and has since grown into an internationally acclaimed live music experience, having hosted over one million fans in locations like Mexico, India, Brazil and the UK. By incorporating carnival themes and attractions, cutting-edge stage production, world-class talent, and innovative art and technology, EDC has become more than an electronic music festival; it is an unparalleled multi-sensory experience unlike any other.

“To everyone who has been looking forward to EDC, the wait is over. I’m so excited to finally be able to announce EDC Japan 2017 today. Last year, GMO Internet celebrated its 20th anniversary. This timing just so happens to coincide with EDC’s 20th anniversary as well. We want to put a smile on the face of everyone who comes into contact with the GMO Internet Group. We’re planning to make EDC Japan an amazing music festival, so please be excited.” – GMO Internet Group Founder & Group CEO, Masatoshi Kumagai

The debut of EDC Japan will introduce fans to the iconic kineticCATHEDRAL stage, a majestic structure that premiered at EDC’s flagship event in Las Vegas in 2014 and has toured New York, Orlando, UK, Brazil, Mexico and India. A reimagined version of the stage will captivate crowds and come alive with hundreds of lights, colorful flames, and two grand owls flanking each side of the beautiful stained glass design. Watch the official announce video to get a sneak peek at the colossal kineticCATHEDRAL stage coming to Japan, here.
