Pasquale Rotella took to social media today to officially announce that EDC Las Vegas will now move to May 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic.
Back in April, Pasquale Rotella and Insomniac announced that EDC Las Vegas would be realigning their dates to October due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19. But as the pandemic continues to rage on across North America, the fall edition became less likely by the day and now they’ve announced the official postponement of the festival to May 2021.
In a post to Instagram just moments ago, Pasquale Rotella announced that the new dates for North America’s largest festival will be May 21-23, 2021, while also providing insight on the decision and why it took this long. “The team and I have spent the last several months working to create a plan that would allow us to produce a safe event for you,” the statement reads before diving into what the plan was with multiple testing points. “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.”
Those who purchased passes for EDC Las Vegas 2020 have the option of rolling over their tickets, camping, and shuttle options to 2021, which will be an automatic process. And true to his word previously about refunds, if those dates don’t work out a refund will be available by visiting their website to verify the purchase and begin the process by Sunday, August 16. Additionally, tickets for EDC Las Vegas 2021 will go back on sale Thursday, August 6 at 10am PT but as of publishing, no further details have surfaced.
The upcoming edition of EDC Las Vegas will celebrate 25 years of the festival that has blossomed to host over 450,000 people over the course of the weekend’s festivities. Keep notifications on to Pasquale Rotella and Insomniac’s channels for the latest updates on the lineup, theme, and more that will be arriving in the coming months.
