Looking for a unique experience at EDC Las Vegas while also supporting a great cause? Check out the packages that are available in the EDC Las Vegas Charity Initiative this year!


Insomniac isn’t just dedicated to providing an unreal experience for their headliners at their festivals, but also continually look to support the communities that play host as well. Their most prominent program is the EDC Las Vegas Charity Initiative, which offers unique experiences at North America’s largest festival while also benefitting charities in Las Vegas.

Partnering up with Surreal for the 5th edition of the initiative, this year the funds that are raised will be donated to Communities in Schools of Southern Nevada and their efforts to support families so their children can pursue their dreams. From now until May 3 at 11:59pm PT, anyone who wants to donate and enter to win one of the ten packages can head to GiveSurreal.com for their chance.

“We created the Charity Initiative as a way to give back to our Las Vegas community while also giving our Headliners the chance to experience EDC in a way very few people ever have. Communities In Schools is an organization that provides a crucial network of support for families and helps ensure kids have all the tools they need to graduate and pursue their dreams. Their commitment to strengthening and uplifting their community is inspiring, and I’m honored to partner with them for this year’s event.” – Insomniac Founder & CEO Pasquale Rotella.

Tickets for the EDC Las Vegas Charity Initiative start at $5 each, with deals for larger purchases and bundle packages available as well. Each experience package will include two VIP tickets to EDC Las Vegas*, but be aware that round-trip airfare and accommodations are provided for all sweepstakes winners.
