Every year the anticipation builds as EDM fans await the new theme for the upcoming edition of EDC Las Vegas. Previous years have seen a focus on kineticLOVE and kineticENERGY, and now Insomniac is here to spread the celebration of mindfulness with kineticZEN. The news came in today through a special Instagram message from beloved Insomniac Founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella.
The theme falls perfectly in line with our current state of affairs. With the ever-growing rise of technology, exemplified in the advancements in production and music hosted at EDC, it's important for humans to take a step back and appreciate the beauty and magic our world has. Too often than not, we tend to gloss over them as a given.
On the choice of the theme, Rotella said:
"I’ve always tried to encourage Headliners to live in the moment and be present. I need reminders myself each day. Life is full of opportunities for reflection, and in those moments we can visualize the world we want to create for ourselves and for each other. I’m grateful and excited to celebrate this next journey with you all. See you soon!"
