e v o l u t i o n I N D U S T R Y W E E K L Y | S E P T E M B E R 7 - 1 3 , 2 0 1 7 I nsomniac chief Pasquale Rotella's social streams have been crammed with teasers about how his team has been rethinking EDC Las Vegas and could improve upon the country's leading dance music festival. This week he let loose with the details. Insomniac has announced that EDC 2018 will move from Father's Day weekend in June to May 18-20, osten- sibly so the three-day party might have more festival-appropriate weather. More significantly, Insomniac hopes to help alleviate the crowded exodus in and out of the Las Vegas Motor Speed- way with a first-ever camping option. EDC overnighters will be able to rent an air-conditioned tent with room for up to six with dust-control canvas walls, artificial grass and electrical outlets; or a premier tent that fits four with twin- or queen-sized beds, linens and towels, tables and chairs. There's also an RV option—a full camper facil- ity provided by Insomniac. Campers will not only avoid the com- mute, they'll also be able to chill in a campground central area with shade, seating, water, food and beverage vendors, a general store, activities and more. If you're ready to rough it, gather your campout crew quickly— EDC tickets go on sale September 28 at E D C 2 0 1 8 m o v E s t o m a y a n D a D D s o v E r n I g h t o p t I o n s E l E C T R I C C A M P O U T p h o t o g r a p h b y J o h n L o C h E r / a p
