EDC

Commemorating the 20th anniversary of Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), Insomniac has launched the “EDC 20-Year Playlist Series,” highlighting the most memorable tracks in dance music and EDC history. Every Thursday, a new EDC playlist will debut on Insomniac.com and Spotify, featuring key influential figures and pivotal tracks in dance music from each year, starting with EDC’s debut in 1997 and counting down to EDC Las Vegas 2016.

Pasquale Rotella, CEO and Founder of Insomniac, alongside a team of Insomniac curators have constructed each weekly playlist, carefully mirroring the festival’s evolution from an underground, word-of-mouth event to a rite of passage for lovers of electronic music culture worldwide.

Along with each playlist, Insomniac.com will give Headliners the chance to learn little known facts and trends from every era of EDC history, with quotes from Rotella and other special guests who experienced the scene first-hand. Tune into the playlist premiere and read never before told stories from 1997, here. Rotella will also pick his favorite “classic cut” from each year to feature during his weekly Night Owl Radio show, airing Fridays at 6 p.m. PST on Siriux XM’s Electric Area. Download Friday’s show here.

The first playlist, released Thursday, Feb. 4, features tracks from Basement Jaxx, The Crystal Method, Stardust, The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy, Daft Punk and more.
