EDC Las Vegas has been postponed from its original May dates to October 22-24, 2021 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Founder and CEO of Insomniac, Pasquale Rotella took to Instagram and made the announcement after Clark County passed a reopening plan requiring 60% of residents to be fully vaccinated before large-scale gatherings can take place. He also revealed that the highly-anticipated lineup would be announced on Wednesday, April 28 at 12 pm PT.
“Unfortunately, the rate at which people get vaccinated before EDC is out of our control. It might happen in time, it might not. Either way, we can’t take that risk.
The team and I are heartbroken, as I know many of you are as well. For those who have stayed with us on this journey, I thank you. Your trust & loyalty are what give us strength to keep moving forward.”Pasqual Rotella

It is the largest festival in North America welcoming over 400,000 attendees each year.
