Los Angeles – Today, Insomniac revealed a diverse talent roster for the inaugural Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) Mexico, debuting at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez on March 15-16, 2014 in Mexico City. Insomniac will partner with OCESA to transform the venue into an immersive fan experience featuring the festivals’ signature theatrical and production elements alongside an incredible lineup of musical acts.
"For years, fans from Mexico have been traveling to our festivals in the United States, and I’m really excited that this March Insomniac and our partners, OCESA, are joining forces to bring Electric Daisy Carnival to Mexico City,” said Pasquale Rotella, Insomniac’s CEO and Founder. “Everything has aligned perfectly to make this festival a reality. We have a great local partner, the perfect venue right in the middle of the city and we’re going to bring many of the creative elements that fans have come to expect from our events.”
