In partnership with Zebra Entertainment Enterprise, Insomniac announced the first ever Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) China, bringing North America’s largest and most anticipated dance music festival to Shanghai International Music Park.
On Sunday, April 29 and Monday, April 30, Insomniac will transform the vast city landscape in the heart of Shanghai into an unparalleled music festival experience, bringing three awe-inspiring stages, incredible laser and light displays, imaginative theatrical performers, and world-renowned dance music artists. China marks EDC’s second location on the Asian continent and will be the first time that local fans can experience what has made EDC a celebrated global phenomenon.
“To bring EDC halfway around the world is a milestone for our entire Insomniac family,” said Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac. “China marks EDC’s sixth international location, and I’m excited to connect and create beautiful new moments with the country’s passionate and ever-growing dance music community.”
The inaugural celebration of EDC China will feature Insomniac’s signature stage designs, including kineticTEMPLE, circuitGROUNDS, bassPOD and the Boombox Art Car. Making its second international appearance, the reimagined kineticTEMPLE will venture overseas to Asia where fans will be immersed in an imaginative story embracing life, creativity, nature, and technology. As fans roam the expansive festival grounds to the soundtrack of the world’s most notable dance music artists, a colorful array of Brass Monkeys, Marching Band Stilts, Marching Majorettes and Sparklepops will be on hand to entertain Headliners through a spectacle of performance art.
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, the UK, and Japan, Insomniac’s flagship EDC Las Vegas welcomes over 400,000 fans across a three-day span each year. Tickets for EDC China 2018 will be available starting Sunday, Feb. 4 at 8 a.m. PT here. Take a journey with EDC all over the world and view the experience recap gallery, here.
