Anyone that’s been to EDC Las Vegas before knows that once you arrive at the  Las Vegas Motor Speedway it’s rare that you can get a signal on your mobile phone. Fortunately this year Insomniac has partnered with Snapchat to provide a special free Wi-Fi connection which will allow you to access Snapchat plus the new Insomniac app which will contain set times and maps along with additional festival information. Insomniac’s new app becomes available for download on Tuesday, June 17.  Just remember to download both of these apps before you head off to Vegas.


No Signal No Problem


Here’s the press release:

Las Vegas – Joining forces with Insomniac for the first time, Snapchat will provide a free dedicated Wi-Fi signal inside the Las Vegas Motor Speedway during the sold out Electric Daisy Carnival, Las Vegas from June 20 – 22, 2014. Created solely to allow both companies applications to function with ease, this special Wi-Fi connection will allow attendees to have a reliable connection to share their experiences from inside this year’s sold-out festival, as well as have access to the latest festival news and updates.

“The fan experience is our top priority and we’re excited that Snapchat has offered to provide free wireless technology that will enable both of our applications to function with ease during the show,” said Pasquale Rotella, CEO and founder of Insomniac. “Traditionally, Wi-Fi services at large-capacity festivals have been unreliable, and so I’m happy that Snapchat has stepped in and will provide a service which allows fans to use both our services in a fun and engaging way. If it’s successful, and can be done without increasing the cost to our fans, we may look at expanding its reach during future events.”

EDC will be an even bigger spectacle this year, accommodating approximately 50,000 more fans and occupying a larger portion of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway than it did in 2013. Fans that have downloaded the Snapchat and Insomniac apps to their Android and iPhone devices will be able to share all their unforgettable moments in real-time while also staying informed with the latest festival news.

Both the Snapchat and Insomniac apps are available for free download on Android and iOS platforms through Google Play and the Apple App Store. The new Insomniac mobile app will re-launch on June 17, with special content geared toward EDC Las Vegas and the Electronic Dance Music lifestyle. The updated application will provide fans with everything from set times, venue maps and amenities to guest services. Attendees are encouraged to download the apps prior to arriving at EDC.
