Insomniac Founder Delivers Both Good News & Bad News In Recent Update

In his latest announcement, Insomniac founder, Pasquale Rotella, took the time to update the followers he calls “Headliners” on what they can expect from Insomniac’s 2016 festival season.

According to the update, Pasquale plans to focus more on enhancing the Insomniac experience this year. New stages, new carnival rides, and new art will help to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of EDC in Las Vegas this June. And the EDMbiz Conference & Expo finds a new home at Caesar’s Palace this year, where there will now be 2 areas for guest speakers and presentations. In addition, he mentioned his goal this year “to help bring back the true art of DJing” with longer set times to allow “a DJ to take listeners on a journey.” Plus, Insomniac Records will be relaunching soon!

There was some bad news as well, as some readers were disappointed to hear the discontinuation of EDC Puerto Rico and Beyond Wonderland Bay Area. Also, the highly-anticipated EDC Japan has been postponed from it’s projected July 2016 date. However, Mr. Rotella did remind his Bay Area Headliners of BOO!, Audio on the Bay, and We Are NRG that are all still taking place, and he teased a “few other announcements on the horizon.” And, apparently the Insomniac team is “working on new US festivals, some with camping, that will take place in 2017!”

“I feel more energized than ever before,” the 41 year old father, husband, and businessman exclaimed towards the end. But, really, how could he not be? He’s got a gorgeous wife, a beautiful little girl, and the Insomniac empire that he has personally crafted into one of the best things to happen to EDM. Sounds perfect!

East coast origin, West coast lifestyle… Growing up I was always surrounded by the sounds of dance music in New York and Florida. However, it wasn’t until college that I was introduced to the rave scene and finally experienced the love and positivity this community is all about. I’m into warehouse undergrounds and massives like Ultra Miami, TomorrowWorld, Nocturnal Wonderland, Hard Day of the Dead, and Buku Music & Art Festival… In addition to EDM, my playlists usually have a lot of Hip-Hop, Top 40 and I’m a huge sucker for throwbacks. Hit me up if you’re attending an event in the Hollywood/LA area, as I’m always open to making new friends!
