The great people of Insomniac, who are responsible for bringing us Electric Daisy Carnival, which is now one of the biggest electronic music festivals worldwide have announced some exciting plans to throw a new festival at the festival grounds where the iconic Woodstock Music Festival went down (for it’s 1994 tribute edition). The anticipated capacity will be 75,000 people throughout the multi-day projected festival.
This would be extremely appropriate venue for Insomniac to take their theatric carnival inspired antics to heights completely taking over a field rather then just a race track or arena.
This is what Simon Lamb, chief operating officer of Insomniac had to say:
What makes our events special relative to other music festivals and other concerts, you know, (is) we create an environment that’s filled with installation art, fireworks, costumed performers,” Lamb said. “It’s much more of a combination of a carnival, theater, music, art and special effects. We encourage the audience to participate in the event.” He said Insomniac has been producing dance music events for nearly 20 years, including the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, Nev.”
We will keep you updated on more info as it rolls in.

Recess Music & Ideas Festival on Michigan State Campus ft. Kaskade & Project 46 Details + Giveaway : Formerly Glowfest [CONTEST]Posted in Bangin, Contests, Events, News by nick | Tags: Concert, Electro House, Festival, Glowfest, Kaskade, Michigan, Michigan State University, Music & Ideas Festival, progressive house, Project 46, RECESS, Trance
One of the pioneer touring electronic festivals GlowFest who has had acts such as Pretty Lights, Deadmau5, Hardwell, Porter Robinson, Big Gigantic, and countless other top acts have gone under some serious changes and grown as a company. They are now called RECESS and are in their terms a “Music & Ideas Festival”. The second edition of the new event will be taking place at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan on Friday April 19th, 2013. Featuring musical guests Kaskade and Project 46.
During the day RECESS is a speker series featuring an out-of-the-box progressive speaker panel during the day from 3pm – 4pm “Study Hall” (held in Business School Room N130 on Campus). Then there is “The Playground”, which is an interactive career fair at the venue from 4:30 – 6:00pm (AG Expo Field) prior to doors opening featuring 16-20 disruptive startup companies. (Video explaining Recess more below)
To end the day is the word class electronic concert they are known for at Michigan State University, where they have brought out electronic icon Kaskade and rising Canadian duo Project 46. The festival is going to be the first outdoor music festival that the campus has seen, so should get extra crazy.
It’s amazing to see electronic music spawn such a potentially impactful event, reminding me of 3LAU’s Pencils for Promise campaign.
You can get early bird student tickets and general admission tickets right now for $25 and $30 before they go up.
RECESS has been nice enough to let use giveaway a pair of tickets to this event. All you have to do is follow the 3 steps below.
