Insomniac Announces Major Changes For EDC Vegas 2018

EDC Changes 2018

After record-breaking temperatures had a significant impact on the weekend, one of the nation’s most explosive festivals will be seeing major changes in 2018. In an Instagram post shared less than an hour ago, Insomniac founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella announced the much-anticipated changes to EDC Vegas that will be implemented throughout the next year.

The biggest change is a tossup between a new date and new lodging options. After a significant increase in both the average temperature and amount of medical calls this year, Insomniac decided to move the festival back a month – the new dates will now be May 18-20. In addition to this, the company will be rolling out a camping program that will alleviate travel times for both those camping and those staying offsite. In addition to regular camping, it looks like patrons will be able to bring their own RVs and stay onsite, as well.

In addition to these major changes, Rotella added that construction on the Speedway will be finished by 2018, lessening travel times even further. In addition to this, an independent shuttle company will be taking over shuttle operations to streamline the overall experience even more. All of these decisions will allow the festival to have extended hours, although the specifics of the extension have not yet been shared. More details regarding these changes will be released over the next few weeks.

We can't wait to see how Rotella and Insomniac as a whole will implement these exciting changes over the coming months. For now, tickets and camping passes will be on sale at the end of this month with hotels available now. See the announcement video below and enjoy!

Megalodon Drops Massive Remix Of GRiZ’s “Wicked"

Griz Megladon

With a name like Megalodon, it comes as no surprise that the Los Angeles-based producer has made a name for himself making heavy, bass-fueled tracks over the past couple of years. The artist made an appearance on Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats Compilation 1 and has teamed up with JAUZ to create a massive future house/dubstep track titled “Shark Attack.” Today we’re excited to be premiering Megalodon’s latest release, a massive remix of GRiZ’s “Wicked.”

Megalodon’s take on “Wicked” preserves the jazz-influence of the track, maintaining the brassy horns that introduce the song. Instead of the more laid-back, funky drop that GRiZ fans may be used to, however, this remix absolutely takes it to the next level production-wise. Megalodon incorporates a pounding bassline and one of the best uses of video game-like synths that we’ve heard. The bass builds upon itself throughout the track, taking the production to newer, more powerful and more intense heights with each passing second. 

This premiere is part of a massive release: It joins 39 other songs to create a 40-track EDC Las Vegas 2017 Compilation launched today by Insomniac Records. The offering is designed to give fans a glimpse of what they’ll see at EDC in 2017.

"I took a step away from my normal routine on this remix. Since the original had such a prominent melody I felt that I needed to focus more on melodic side to due the remix justice. That being said I'm quite happy with how things turned out. I have been closing all of my sets on tour with this remix for a while now and the crowd reactions have been amazing. - Megalodon 

The compilation features songs spanning genres of all kinds, including Slander and Basstrick’s massive trap/bass house collaboration “Drop It,” NGHTMRE and Ghastly’s collaboration “End Of The Night,” and much, much more. Stream the “Wicked” remix below and enjoy!
