Insomniac has announced that Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) will bring its music festival experience to Brazil from December 4-5, 2015 at São Paulo’s Autódromo de Interlagos and Tokyo, Japan in 2016.

EDC’s first foray into Brazil through a partnership with South American entertainment company Time For Fun. The 90-foot tall Kinetic Field stage that debuted at EDC Las Vegas’ 2014 edition will be featured at EDC Brazil’s inaugural edition at the end of this year.

“Hosting EDC in Brazil is fulfilling my longtime dream of taking the festival to the beautiful continent of South America. Insomniac and our local partners will work hard to plan a truly unique experience and I’m excited for more Headliners across the globe to join in,” said Pasquale Rotella, founder and CEO of Insomniac.

“We are very proud of being in this promising market of electronic festivals with an event of this magnitude. We intend to offer to the Brazilian audience a superlative experience and a lineup never before seen in Brazil,” said Fernando Alterio, President of Time For Fun.

In partnership with GMO Culture Incubation, 2016 will be the debut of the festival in the Asian continent. Details for EDC Japan regarding date, location and ticket sales will be announced in the coming months.

“Dance music is truly a global movement, and over the last few years I’ve been fortunate enough to bring EDC to our Headliners in Mexico, the UK, and later this year, Brazil. I can’t tell you how excited I am to announce that in 2016, we’ll be adding Japan to that list! More info to come, but make sure to follow @EDC_Japan for all the details. #EDCJP,” said Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac.



With the inclusion of EDC Brazil and Japan into Insomniac’s portfolio of international events, Electric Daisy Carnival has made the EDC experience more accessible to fans over the world. EDC is also held annually in the United Kingdom where almost 40,000 fans gathered in celebration earlier this month. EDC Mexico has attracted more than 100,000 excited attendees, making it the largest music festival to ever be hosted in the country. In addition to international locations, Electric Daisy Carnival takes place in several cities in the US including Las Vegas, New York and Orlando.
