After Pasquale Rotella announced that EDC Las Vegas would be preparing for next May a few weeks ago, he announced that the annual festival would have to be postponed to October.
Rotella stated, “As we expected and were insured prior to the festival announcement for May, Nevada state officials announced that they would be lifting social distancing requirements from May 1st to pave the way for EDC to can be implemented with strict security guidelines. We had a meeting with police, fire brigade, medical and other EDC-related authorities in Las Vegas last Friday to plan details around the event. “
He continued, “Today Clark County (home of EDC and the Las Vegas Motor Speedway) passed a reopening plan requiring 60% of residents to be vaccinated before restrictions on large gatherings like EDC can be lifted. Unfortunately, the rate at which people are vaccinated prior to EDC is beyond our control. It could happen in time, it couldn’t. In any case, we cannot take this risk. “
The lineup was “fully booked” and should be announced tomorrow at 12 noon PT, but that will now also be delayed.
For those concerned about their tickets, Rotella explains, “Your ticket will automatically roll over to the new dates, or you can get a refund by clicking the link in my bio. If you have already carried over your ticket to 2022, your ticket will also carry over to the new dates, unless you wish to receive a refund. “
I’m sorry to say EDC Las Vegas has to move to October. I want to thank everyone who put their hearts and souls into this show – the Insomniac team, artists, agents, managers, production teams, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway staff, the government … https://t.co/z2Jhy2gf5K pic. twitter.com/Pqpz9eKbR6
