Pasquale Rotella’s Electric Daisy Carnival has outdone itself yet again for its third year at the Las Vegas Speedway, featuring a litany of improvements that further establish EDC Las Vegas as America’s Raver mecca. A carnival in the most traditional sense, Rotella has created a fever-dream inspired fantasy world in the middle of the Nevada desert. There is nothing quite like it in terms of scale and scope and this year the festival grounds saw significant expansion, some much needed layout adjustments, improved transportation and a Kinetic Field that was nearly three times larger than its 2012 counterpart.
Dance Music Award show to be produced by Insomaniac and Dick Clark productions in Las Vegas
Insomniac and Dick Clark productions (DCP) announced during today’s EDMbiz conference they will be producing a new award show dedicated solely to electronic dance music in Las Vegas next year. The show will serve as the premier industry showcase for the genre’s best work each year.
“Creating an award show focused on all the creative components that contribute to the success of dance music (music, art, production and lighting) has been a dream of mine for years,” said Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac.
The inaugural celebration of dance music will launch in Las Vegas during Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) week in 2014 with an energy-filled event that will honor the most creative minds in dance music.
“DCP is the largest producer of music awards shows in the industry and Insomniac has been at the forefront of the EDM movement since they started in 1993. Creating an EDM awards show with Insomniac is the perfect collaboration.” said Allen Shapiro, CEO of dick clark productions.
