Los Angeles – Today, Insomniac announced that the Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), Mexico will make its debut on March 15-16, 2014. In partnership with OCESA, the festival will bring its signature audiovisual production and theatrics to the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez (racetrack) in Mexico City.

“After the success of our first international endeavor this summer with EDC London, fans from around the world expressed an interest in experiencing EDC in their home towns,” said Pasquale Rotella, CEO and founder of Insomniac. “We listened, and we’re excited to announce EDC Mexico City. The fans have been so passionate about their desire for a festival there and I’m really looking forward to joining them next March when we will all celebrate music, art and life. Insomniac and our partners are working hard to plan an event that will be the truly unique and creative festival experience that fans look forward to.”

Since its inception in 1996, the Electric Daisy Carnival has been celebrated for creating an immersive fan experience with state-of-the-art stage and production design, interactive art installations, full-scale carnival rides and over-the-top theatrical elements. Millions have traveled across the globe to attend EDC’s flagship event in Las Vegas as well as its touring locations including Chicago, New York, Orlando and Puerto Rico. EDC London, the festival’s first international location, hosted a sold-out crowd of enthusiastic attendees.
