Confusion and turmoil has surrounded EDC Las Vegas since Pasquale Rotella announced that the festival would advance in May on the same day as the state of Nevada declined their original security proposal.
In response to fan confusion, Rotella went to Reddit of all places to reply to a thread titled “EDC CONFIRMED FOR MAY 2021”.
As Billboard points out, “On May 1, responsibility for COVID-19 protocols and rules for major Nevada events will shift from state to county authorities, meaning Clark County officials will be responsible for reviewing Insomniac’s revised safety plan are responsible. ” However, the deadline for transferring tickets is May 2022 April 15, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. PT. That means fans won’t be able to check EDC’s security plan or lineup until they have their tickets suspended for that year.
Rotella’s response to fans feeling insecure this year echoes many comments on social media: “For those who have safety concerns about attending EDC in May, I hear you loud and clear. The past year has challenged us all spiritually, and I understand why some feel that way. You don’t have to worry, just postpone your ticket until the next year. We are here for you now and will be for decades, no matter what. “
