Pasquale Rotella received a lot of positive and negative responses when he first asked the question a few months ago “Should EDC Las Vegas be streamed online?” With almost every major festivals in the USA included Ultra, Bonnaroo, Spring Awakening, and many more offering live streaming for those who couldn’t attend, Pasquale made the decision to come up with his “experience” to share with those around the world as he explains:
“For years, I’ve been debating whether or not we should broadcast EDC Vegas online, but after watching other events adopt live-streaming, I felt that a traditional approach wasn’t for us,” said Pasquale Rotella, CEO and founder of Insomniac. “Sure, it may capture the crowds and the artists, but our experience is about so much more than that. That’s why we’re getting away from the traditional live stream format and creating something completely different. With EDC Curated, we are producing a unique experience that allows those watching around the world to select and view handpicked footage that highlights different aspects of the show. In doing so, we also preserve the experience for those fans that attend in the flesh.”
With over 50 different cameras setup amongst the festival, fans can choose from 10 different camera feeds online sponsored by 7UP. To grandstands, carnival rides, and quadcopters flying overhead giving you the special “owl-eye view” of everything, fans will get to see EDC and the 400,000 headliners like never before.
EDC Curated will be broadcast on Insomniac.com and will occur from 8:30 pm PST to 8:30 am PST on June 20, 21, and 22. Footage shared via EDC Curated will be available for one time only and will not be rebroadcast.
