Insomniac To Put $35 Million Into Production Of EDC Las Vegas
If a lineup boasting all of the best DJs in the world didn’t woo you enough into making it to EDC Las Vegas(or at least idolizing those who are going), the 35 million dollars Pasquale Rotella and Insomniac is putting into the production of the event should be the icing on the cake. When asked for specifics about how the money would be spent, Rotella said, “We’re creating an environment along the lines of what you see at a theme park — but on an even larger scale.” To put $35 million into perspective that’s about 90% of Armin Van Buuren’s net worth. I think Armin could throw a pretty damn impressive party with virtually all of his money.
115,000 festival goers a day sure helps to allow for that massive budget, but you can’t help but wonder just how incredible the scene will be with by far the largest budget Insomniac has ever allocated for the event. The mayor of Las Vegas feels bad for those of you who can’t make it to the festival. He’s decided to make sure everyone in Vegas gets a taste of the experience. June 18-25 has been officially declared EDC Week in Las Vegas (what other place in the world would that happen?). Marquee, Steve Wynn’s Encore Resort, and the Hard Rock Rehab pool will offer incredible shows with the likes of Armin Van Buuren, Dash Berlin, Avicii, Kaskade, and many others all week long.
