Watch Pasquale Rotella, CEO and Founder of Insomniac, take a look back on 20 unforgettable years of Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) in Insomniac’s latest video, “EDC20: The Spirit, Energy & Experience.” Beginning with his first life changing experience at a Los Angeles underground party and recounting every memory that has shaped his vision along the way, Rotella gives Headliners an inside look into the culture, community and inspiration behind North America’s largest festival of the year.
The video reveals Rotella’s inner thoughts and vision behind the iconic festival, scheduled to return to Las Vegas Motor Speedway June 17 – 19 for its 20th anniversary. With highlights from EDC’s colorful history, Rotella paints a clear picture of its impact on his own life, Las Vegas, attendees, and people watching all over the world.
“My job and my passion is to create an environment that is safe and magical. For people to gather and express themselves,” says Rotella. “All year round, people wait for this event. And the energy builds, and it builds and it builds….We call our attendees headliners. Why? Because they’re the most important piece for this event coming together and being all it can be.”
Hundreds of thousands of Headliners will join Insomniac for “20 Years Under the Electric Sky,” as North America’s largest dance music festival returns to Las Vegas for three days of energy, imaginative costumes, life-size art installations and incredible music and surprises.
