Insomniac has announced a new Electric Daisy Carnival in Seoul, South Korea, to come in 2019. It will be unlike any EDC to date, with roller coasters, arcades, carousels and a virtual reality cafe. Headliners will include top local and international talent across three stages, and the whole place will be lit in Seoul's neon wonderland of the Seoulland amusement park.
“Right now, there’s an energy around dance music in South Korea that inspires us to bring EDC there," Founder and ceo of Insomniac Pasquale Rotella is quoted in a press release. "We have a great venue, an amazing partner, and most importantly, a community that is embracing dance culture in an exciting way."
Asia is undoubtedly one of the most exciting places to be in the world today. The economy is booming, the architecture is cutting edge, and the people are hungry for cultural experiences. It's the fastest-growing market for dance music, too, and the scene's biggest names in events and music festivals clamor for a chance to give the people what they want.
