Its been three years since the last Moonrise Festival happened in Baltimore, Maryland. Once the first promo advertisement appeared, the dance community was beyond ecstatic. It's known as one of the longest-running festivals in the area. It was seven years ago when I attended my first Moonrise. The festival was very unorganized, although it did bring an incredible lineup. However, the stages were much smaller, and it was difficult to hear most of the sets due to poor sound production. A few sets did stand out, and I made terrific friends that weekend that I still keep in touch with. This year with the rebranding, it will be a sensory experience like no other that will transform the famous harbor city. What to expect was unknown as a new branded festival under the ownership of Insomniac Events and Club Glow. This wasn’t the first time the flagship events company revamped an existing music festival. All expectations were at the highest peak of performances in all realms. The planets and stars aligned accordingly in the Universe as time led up to the weekend of the Moonrise Festival.(more…)
Just halfway through the incredible summer season with massive festivals worldwide, and today, Insomniac Events surprised the community with a mind-blowing full lineup drop of EDC Orlando. Set to perform at the three-day affair this November 11-13, 2022. Once again, EDC will take over Orlando’s Tinker Field. The colorful celebration with sunshine and positive energy will host plenty of elite performers and up-and-coming acts. The festival will include the highly anticipated sunset performances with Kaskade Redux, Dom Dolla, Above & Beyond, and more. EDC Orlando will also champion talented producers, including 999999999 (Hybrid Live/DJ Set), Green Velvet Presents La La Land, John Summit, Vintage Culture, Pauline Herr, Charlotte de Witte, plus over one hundred other artists. First debuted at EDC Las Vegas earlier this year, the kineticBLOOM will be on full display in Orlando, celebrating the growth of personal connections and the seed of a unique flower known over the last 26 years as the Electric Daisy.
Electric Daisy Carnival and Orlando have always brought a wide variety to every lineup each year, raising the bar in creativity and lineup curating. Each year, Insomniac sets high standards and never slows down to engage in creating new experiences. Festival goers always return every year because it delivers a different experience. More festival activities, unique drinks specials, immersive actors and performers, and iconic DJ sets. EDC grows each year, inviting more talented artists and attracting more attendees. Throughout its eleven years, EDC Orlando has evolved into a major festival in the United States. It's a celebration of all the successful years the festival created with all the loving fans. Here are some exciting and fun facts about EDC Orlando.
It can be annoying not being able to use cash at EDC. There is an option for cash to be exchanged onsite for a prepaid card with the merchants. But who wants to do that? However, we are living in a new age where everyone is using a phone, and everything is digital. EDC accepts Credit, debit, Samsung Pay, Apple Pay, and Android Pay. Paying cashless does make lines go a little faster when buying merch, food, or beverages. Unless the systems go down.
Many of Insomniac’s signature brands will champion EDC Orlando’s four iconic stages, including Dreamstate, Bassrush, Insomniac Records, and Factory 93. Plus, the main stage, known as kineticFIELD, adopts the same construction as Vegas. From ethereal trance music and heavy-hitting bass to the dance floor sounds of house and techno. Insomniac’s curated music lineups continue strengthening the behemoth's reach to electronic dance fans across all genres. The Ryno Bus Art Car will also host the best local talent from the region, including a day dedicated to Florida breaks.
Last year’s high-energy festival brought a sold-out crowd of 300,000 Headliners together for three days of blooming beats inspired by the nature of the kineticZEN festival theme. Since its first edition in 2011, Insomniac’s EDC Orlando festival has continued to grow in size, now totaling more than 40 acres of the insane festival experience. Now spanning five music stages, attendance nearly tripled in just the last three years. This year will draw an even more significant number of people with the rise of festival action and success rates.
Downtown Orlando’s lively hub of entertainment and nightlife will also transform into EDC Orlando’s official pre-party and afterparty destination. Throughout recent years, it has hosted various events across multiple nights. Full performance and venue details will be announced soon.
Tickets are on sale for EDC Orlando, with three-day GA passes starting at $199.99 and VIP passes starting at $399.99. Please visit the link purchase; while they are still at Tier 1, prices will increase and sell out.
While over five hundred thousand people will be attending Electric Daisy Carnival. The rest of everyone will dread the worst feeling, FOMO. Fear no more, because EDC is available to Livestream. Four channels will stream across multiple platforms including YouTube, TikTok, Lomotif, and Roblox.

Many people thought Moonrise wouldn’t happen anymore until the announcement of its return arrived. The festival is now rebranded by powerhouses Insomniac and Club Glow. Baltimore’s longest-running electronic music has released its 2022 lineup. After a three-year hiatus, Moonrise will return to Pimlico Race Course on Saturday, August 6, and Sunday, August 7.(more…)

The festival will be filled with the best of house music, techno, drum & bass, and disco. It is set to be better than ever before, all festivals say that however, it's been two years since major festivals took place.
