EDC Curated: The 2014 Broadcast

To broadcast or not to broadcast is something that Pasquale Rotella has asked headliners for months now about what direction to take. There was speculation in recent weeks as Insomniac was testing live stream on YouTube about whether or not Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas 2014 would be live broadcasted and it sounds like it will be in a way.

Other festivals like Ultra, Tomorrowland, Coachella and Bonnaroo gain a massive amount of interest from people who’ve never been to the festivals when they can see them live instead of waiting for pictures and videos to be released. Electric Daisy Carnival will be entering that same realm by showing off what happens under the electric sky.

Pasquale Rotella has released the following:

As many of you know, I’ve gone back and forth about whether or not we should jump into the world of “live-streaming.” Some of you welcome the idea, but others are very much opposed to broadcasting the EDC experience outside of the Speedway. I hear your feedback and I totally get it. In the end, I think we all know that nothing can duplicate the feeling of being surrounded by 140,000 other smiling faces, dancing until the sun comes up in the desert sky. A live stream just cannot capture that. If anything, it dilutes the experience and gives you a false perception that you’ve “been there and done that.” That’s why we’re doing EDC Curated. I look at live streams as a passive way of experiencing something incredibly active and exciting. EDC Curated is NOT a live stream. Our goal is to give Headliners across the globe a look behind the scenes and into the crazy, wonderful world that is EDC Las Vegas, and that’s so much more than just DJ sets and crowd cut-aways. Everyone from our stilt walkers to our stage designers has a unique story to tell. The circuitGROUNDS, the cosmicMEADOW, the neonGARDEN, the kineticFIELD, the bassCON stage—they all have a story. YOU have a story. Even though thousands and thousands of people are going to experience EDC Vegas in person, there are countless others around the world who aren’t able to attend. We want to give those who can’t be there a glimpse behind the curtain; an exclusive broadcast that will only be shown this weekend. Hopefully they’ll be the ones welcoming the sunrise in 2015.
