Insomniac Events made the right call at the right time. Due to wind at 1:40 a.m. on May 19, they chose to close down a couple of stages at Electric Daisy Carnival. The other two days of the music festival were unaffected.

Regardless of the situation, every attendee had complete confidence in Pasquale Rotella.

Consequently, the windstorm forced EDC’s promoters into a tough place. Despite this, they made the proper changes to the venue and correctly insured the safety of all attendees.

What Happened?

At 1:30 a.m., Rezz’s set ended. The plan was to see I_0 B2B No Mana and then Kaskade followed by RL Grime. Halfway through the walk, we noticed there were way more people in the center of Electric Daisy Carnival than usual.

The main-stage in EDC was evacuated at 1:40 a.m. This resulted in a handful of consequences. Walking to get food and bathrooms went from a usual 10 minute wait time to nearly 45 minutes.

During the windstorm, Cosmic Meadow and Circuit Grounds remained open.

On Sunday Insomniac Events moved RL Grime to the Basspod.

Friday and Sunday had no cancellations. On Sunday we saw Andrew Bayer, RL Grime, Tchami x Malaa, and more.

Furthermore on Sunday and on other stages Illenium, San Holo, Armin Van Buuren, Diplo, Dillon Francis, Marlo, Ekali, Andrew Rayel, and Steve Aoki performed.

Most importantly everyone dominated their respective set times.

If you attended Electric Daisy Carnival 2019 or watched the live stream, please we would love to hear your thoughts on Facebook or Twitter!
