EDC Las Vegas is reportedly looking to move their annual festival to October 2-4 weekend, Billboard reports. The festival which is currently slated to take place over May 15-17, has been the latest to announce their postponement due to the spread of COVID-19. The Insomniac CEO and festival founder, Pasquale Rotella has taken to social media over the past few weeks to provide frequent updates to fans and followers about the ongoing decisions regarding the festival’s scheduled dates and the possibility of postponing their 20th anniversary to later in the year.
As of March 31, Pasquale updated fans saying an announcement about any necessary changes for the festival’s future would be made later within the week. See his full statement below.

Focusing on the light. 🙏✨ All this time spent working out details for EDC Las Vegas and the rest of our 2020 festivals has got me thinking about the big picture. What’s the value of music festivals in a world that’s experiencing so much hardship? Or if I get super deep into my own head, is what I’ve dedicated my entire life to really even that important right now? Throwing these Virtual Rave-A-Thons and seeing our community come together and dance and lift each other up has been so powerful, and it only reaffirms what I’ve always felt at my core. That what we do—this magic we create together—is a life force. It inspires us to be better. It brings us closer together. It helps us see a brighter and better tomorrow. And that’s exactly what we need right now. This time hasn’t been about whether or not to do the event before it’s safe. That’s never been a question for me. We’re spending so much time on the best decisions for EDCLV because I know how much it means to many of you and we need it to be right. Thank you for being patient. I’ll have an announcement with all necessary changes coming this week so stay tuned. ❤️ Photo 📸 @eastonschirra
