    Default EDC Chicago 2013

    Memorial Day Weekend.
    Location tbd

    http://www.thebpm.net/2012/12/edc-ch...somniac-up-to/


    .Insomniac’s massive music festival franchise, The Electric Daisy Carnival, appears to be expanding. Twitter comments made by Insomniac’s CEO, Pasqualle Rotella, seem to suggest a move to bring the event to Chicago where it will take place over Memorial Day Weekend. A new twitter handle, @EDCchicago2013, has been created and is actively adding credibility to the rumors. Memorial Day Weekend is also when Chicago’s biggest current dance music event, The Future Sound Music Festival, is scheduled and would be in direct competition with EDC Chicago. However, investigations conducted by the dance music blog Electronic Midwest have revealed communications between Rotella and the Aura Presents, the promoters of the Future Sound Music Festival, which suggest that the competition won’t be so stiff after all. “Insomniac and Aura had at first attempted to work together to merge the two festivals,” the report states. “But numerous funding complications and misunderstanding among business partners later caused almost all of the confirmed talent for FSDMV to back out after artist deposits went unpaid.” According to Electronic Midwest, Aura Presents has filed for bankruptcy leaving a clear path for Rotella to make his move. Reactions have been mixed with some people welcoming the event and others fearing the commercialization of a Chicago dance music scene that has remained relatively unique and regional. If the rumors are true, Illinois will join California, Texas, Nevada, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Colorado, and Puerto Rico as host states.

    There is enough terrible EDC styled music to fill up several stages at several festivals on the same weekend.

    The only festival that might be seriously impacted by this is DEMF.

    I'm happy to hear about things that will keep people away from LiB. This year I actually plan on buying tickets and maybe even spending a night. I realize these in many ways have little to do with each other.

    As someone who has attended DEMF, would you say primarily impacted by: Attendance or music wise? I would think the music at DEMF would differ a bit *non cheese house domination*

    I will see you at LiB gunz, hopefully they have some easy spots for volunteering (COFFEE!), I've found not paying for my last few festivals in exchange for a little labor has been very satisfying when I camp.

    I think DEMF could be impacted in a handful of ways:

    1) EDC might pull away more of the younger (RedBull Stage) fans because of a more youthful/cheese lineup
    2) EDC might actually be able to pull some of the rarer or less typical Insomniac/EDC talent since the proximity will be close -- so there might be some overlap of artists playing at both festivals, which has no real effect on DEMF itself but might make the after party scene a bit different.

    Edc will peobably end up using the same model from vegas that they have and do shows around town the whole week in various clubs. Also, lollapalooza is probably pissed because insomniac will steal alot of the edm they wanted to put at the forefront of the festival now.

    At least for DEMF they can definitely rely on Insomniac charging an outrageous cost for 1 day at a "festival" ~$69-$95

    DEMF 3 day early bird VIP $154 +$2 service charge blows away what Insomniac generally charges for VIP at their festivals ($120-$175/day)

    Plus, one of the two gatherings will have a much better chemical selection to partake of and folks who are generally enjoyable on those substances.

    Yes, Lolla and Sasquatch will have terrible EDM lineups because of EDC, not because of the festivals they are.

    I'm hoping some DEMF artists are booked to this while they're near by. I can't escape town for DEMF but if there is something worth seeing I can justify EDC.

    I went to edc nyc last year and stayed at the underground techno stage the entire time. Was a good time, tiny crowd free water next to you, and solid lineup. Issue is, why are you spending hundred of dollars on afrojack and armin headlining when your not even gonna see them. Underground edm is basically free, demf proves that.

    That is a really good point.

    I guess some might argue that even if you don't see Afrojack, Armin, etc. you're paying for all of the production that Insomniac provides.

    But you're right on about Southern Californians being into that shit.

    To think this wont affect DEMF is foolish. I'm sure radius clauses will be in effect. I look for this to be Rotella's "All Points West". I dont think the Mid-West demographic is that eager to pay the prices that he charges in Vegas for Chicago. Vegas works because it is a 2 for 1 vacation. Thats the allure for kids to spend their money and the start of summer when all the college kids are on break. It will be interesting to see how it pans out.

    They can't possibly charge the same for EDC Chicago as they do in Vegas, right?

    I'm quite sure Insomniac has no problem with charging at least $80 to rave per day, not counting service fees
