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.”
Shanghai should prepare for an international invasion of the highest caliber. Australia’s Alison Wonderland will be a jumping bean behind the decks. Drum’n’bass icon Andy C will put a hurting on the speakers. Canadian superstar deadmau5 (who’s also playing EDC Japan but not EDC Vegas) will conjure a strange world of sight and sound, while Hardwell will bring the best hard electro the Netherlands has to offer. Martin Garrix will mix the worlds of pop and underground, NGHTMRE will blend bass with musicality, Tchami and Malaa will hold it down for dark French house, and so much more.
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.
Your #EDCChina 2018 lineup is HERE! See YOU in Shanghai! 🙌 🎶
