One of the world’s fastest growing festival brands has recently announced a new expansion to its most popular event. Insomniac’s flagship event Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) takes place in Las Vegas in May each year, with numerous additional editions hosted around the world. After successful expansions to China and Japan, Insomniac has announced that South Korea will share the Electric Sky for the first time this summer. Unlike any other EDC experience in the world, the Korean edition will be held at an amusement park. Neon wonderland ‘Seoulland’ will be the new home of Insomniac’s latest expansion, featuring roller coasters, carousels, arcades and more!
‘Under the Electric Sky, we come together to celebrate life, love, art and music.’
The very first edition of EDC in South Korea will host an impressive bill of top local and international artists across three extravagant stages. In 2018, China and Japan welcomed over 50 artists across the two day event, sharing international headliners such as Don Diablo, Illenium and Alison Wonderland. Both editions also hosted three time consecutive world number one DJ Martin Garrix among many other impressive names. With electronic dance music culture booming in Asia, there’s no doubt EDC Korea will draw in a world class lineup.
EDC Korea will take place at Seoulland amusement park in South Korea (181 Gwangmyeong-ro, Makgye-dong, Gwacheon-si, Gyeonggi-do, Seoul, South Korea).
The nearest major airport is Incheon International Airport, which is approximately 50km from the venue.
