Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella says ‘big changes’ coming to EDC Las Vegas

Shortly after this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) Las Vegas concluded, producer and Insomniac Events founder Pasquale Rotella started hinting that ‘big changes’ are on the horizon for the 2018 event.

Rotella has mentioned the forthcoming announcement on his own social media pages. In an Instagram post yesterday, he promised the news would be made public “soon” and would be “worth the wait.”

Fans speculate the announcement could mean a change in dates for the festival to avoid excessive hot weather conditions or that new transportation plans will be unveiled. Traffic congestion to and from the event continues to be the biggest logistical obstacle for the Insomniac team.

In July, Rotella told the Las Vegas Review Journal that he was exploring date options but that no decision had been made. “We could end up on the same date in June, but we’re exploring the possibility of moving,” he said.

EDC Las Vegas 2017, held June 16-18, attracted nearly 133,000 daily attendees to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. It’s been held in Las Vegas since 2011 after a move from Los Angeles.
