Insomniac Events just wrapped their 9th edition of EDC Orlando this past weekend. The festival was the first 3-day Electric Daisy Carnival in EDC Orlando history, and over 250,000 attendees passed through the gates! For its 9th edition, the festival broke all sorts of records, including it’s expected economic impact of $50M in the city of Orlando, up from $35M in 2018. Here are some other stats from EDC Orlando 2019:
- The festival grew by an additional 10.5 acres, bringing the footprint to about 40 acres in size.
- The festival added a fourth stage, stereoBLOOM
- Three new art installations were brought to Orlando: Pixel Forest, Parluna, and Anime
- 180 DJs performed over the course of the three-day weekend
- Across the four stages, 77 lasers, 74 flame units, and more than 1,600 lighting fixtures and 5,000 video tiles created a mesmerizing visual experience
- Through their charitable giving arm, Insomniac will be donating $60,000 to a non-profit that “will enable various HOAs in the West Lakes communities surrounding Tinker Field to beautify their neighborhoods through landscape enhancements, painting homes and other improvements, and further solidifies Insomniac’s commitment to give back to the Central Florida community that has welcomed it since the first EDC Orlando in 2011.”
After a resounding success, the festival has announced its return in 2020 for the 10th anniversary of EDC Orlando: November 13+14+15.
