EDC Throws Virtual Rave-A-Thon

I get a feeling all the party people from the West Coast to the East Coast are going to get #bananas for this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival. Yes, EDC is still going down May 15th-17th. Only instead of in Las Vegas at a fairground, it’s going down on your computer, phone, tablet, and maybe even your TV (if it’s connected) and they’re calling it EDC Las Vegas: Virtual Rave-A-Thon presented by Insomniac.

I know, it’s not the same. You won’t arrive with a car load of friends, get lost with the one you were fighting with the whole way, and at some point leave their lame ass to wander around aimlessly alone and slightly open to the possibility of meeting your next significant other. Then, your favorite song comes on. You run into your friends again, and you forget the now-fleeting notion that you’d ever find true love. Now, with EDC at home, and maybe some trusted (preferably tested) friends over, you definitely are not going to find your true love – so just enjoy the music.

Insomniac Founder Pasquale Rotella will host the event and provide one-on-one interviews with the DJs. A special initiative will be debuted during the EDC Las Vegas Virtual Rave-A-Thon. Insomniac has partnered with charitable organization In Place of War to promote Rave Recovery, a relief fund that was created specifically for dance music fans impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

A portion of the proceeds will also support In Place of War’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund, which supports some of the world’s most vulnerable communities in the global south during the pandemic. Donations can be made now by clicking HERE, and donation links will be live on Insomniac’s YouTube and Twitch channels during the Rave-A-Thon livestream.
