Insomniac is bringing the electric sky to would-be Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas attendees via a three-day Virtual Rave-A-Thon that will feature live performances from the likes of Kaskade, Tchami, Seven Lions, ZHU, Zeds Dead, Subtronics, and many, many more.
From May 15-17, the original date of EDC Las Vegas’ tenth anniversary iteration, Insomniac will air sets from artists scheduled to perform at the event across two channels beginning at 5pm PT/8pm ET each day. The festival’s famed leader, Pasquale Rotella will host the virtual festivities, conducting interviews with DJs included on the digital lineup and engaging viewers throughout the three day affair.
During the EDC Las Vegas Virtual Rave-A-Thon, Insomniac will collect voluntary donations to Rave Recovery, a relief fund that specifically benefits dance music fans affected by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Proceeds will also support In Place of War’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund, which allocates resources to vulnerable communities in the global south. Donation links will be broadcast live on Insomniac’s YouTube and Twitch channels during the Rave-A-Thon, and are currently being accepted ahead of the digital festival, here.
Looking out for one another and giving back have been cornerstones of rave culture since people first set foot on the dancefloor. With so many people experiencing hardships brought on by COVID-19, those principles are more important than ever.
Even though we’re isolated, no one should feel alone. Rave Recovery was created to support fans within our dance music community who need assistance—and hopefully inspire others to reach out, connect, and give back.
