Many headliners hoped that they would unite once again under the electric sky in October. However, Insomniac has made the official decision to cancel this year’s 25th-anniversary celebration.
Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella shared the heartbreaking news on his social media. He states that there were plans to keep EDC Las Vegas attendees safe with a two-step testing process and other safety precautions. Due to a lack of time, it was not possible to obtain the equipment by October. Rotella assured fans that all options were exhausted before coming to this decision. Unfortunately, this is the only option that is best for the safety and health of all future attendees.
The EDC Las Vegas 25th-anniversary event will now be taking place on May 21 – 23 2021. Those who have chosen to keep their passes for the 2020 event will now have them honored for next year. This includes Camp EDC and Shuttle passes. However, those unable to attend the new dates be eligible for a refund.
Those who want to attend the new festival dates and purchase a pass will be able to do so on August 6 at 10 AM PT. Insomniac will be putting available tickets on sale.

@EDC_LasVegas UPDATE: I know you’ve been waiting a long time & I want to THANK YOU for being so patient. Some have questioned why we haven’t postponed yet & I want to let you know what we’ve been up to. The team & I have spent the last several months working to create a plan that would allow us to produce a safe event for you. We wanted to implement a free two-step testing program, one test at home before traveling to Las Vegas & another test at the venue when you arrived, in addition to many other enhanced safety protocols. Unfortunately, we just learned that the medical advances necessary to pull this off will not be ready in time, which is why I’m making this announcement today. Regardless, I’m proud of our team for continuing to believe & work so hard throughout the process. This whole experience has truly been a wild ride. Here I am, a rave promoter, finding myself talking to biopharmaceutical companies about diagnostic tests for a novel virus while working with Nevada’s most prominent government officials. I’ve felt a lot of pressure wanting to come through for all of you & after taking time to exhaust every possible option, I can feel confident knowing this is the right decision. We are officially postponing EDC Las Vegas 2020 & will be returning May 21+22+23 of 2021 to celebrate 25 years of EDC. To everyone who chose to hang onto their ticket & stick with us during this time, THANK YOU! You’re the most amazing community I could ever hope to be a part of. It means the world to me. We would not be able to do any of this without your support. All 2020 passes, including Camp EDC & shuttles, will be honored for the new 2021 dates & will automatically transfer over. For those who would like a refund, go to edclasvegas.com/verify. Because some of you won’t be able to make the rescheduled dates, any tickets for EDC Las Vegas 2021 that become available will go back on sale Thursday, August 6 at 10am PT. Insomniac has been built on never giving up. We’re already working hard on next year’s show & we’ll be back with more energy than ever for our 25 Year Celebration. Until then— Peace, Love, Stay Positive & I’ll See You Under the Electric Sky!?✨
Although EDC Las Vegas will be canceled this year, Insomniac is sure to give fans an even bigger and better experience in 2021. The popular music festival is known to have memorable surprises in store and this will not be an exception.
