Back in May, which we can hardly believe was already three months ago, Pasquale Rotella, founder and CEO of Insomniac Events and father to Electric Daisy Carnival, let slip in an interview that EDC’s next destination would be on the massive subcontinent of India.
Today, via a press release, Insomniac has confirmed the location and dates for EDC India this year: the festival will take place in Delhi on November 12 and 13. Insomniac claims that it will be the largest dance music event “ever witnessed in the country,” consisting of international artists and local ones.
“Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been fascinated by the country’s colorful and exotic culture,” said Pasquale Rotella. “I know it’s a place where the magic of EDC can come alive in a truly unique way.”
Insomniac partnered with promoters Only Much Louder, responsible for the NH7 Weekender festivals as well as the comedy festival Stage Forty Two. OML’s CEO Vijay Nair was quoted as saying: “There are very few festivals that every EDM fan in the world talks about. Once I witnessed EDC in Las Vegas, I could see why. I have never seen a festival of this scale so beautifully executed. We can’t wait to bring that experience to Indian fans and blow their minds.”
Specific details about the line-up, ticket prices, and venue(s) are yet to be revealed.
