EDC is making waves—literally.

Insomniac Events' beloved festival brand is taking to the seas after its founder and CEO, Pasquale Rotella, revealed a brand new nautical event, EDSea.

As maritime music festivals grow in popularity, it should come as no surprise that EDC is rocking the boat. The four-night EDSea event enters a market with a number of well-established players, like Groove Cruise and FriendShip. But Insomniac already owns and operates its own EDM cruise-turned-festival, Holy Ship! Wrecked, so the renowned promoter isn't exactly entering uncharted waters.

EDSea's maiden voyage on the Norwegian Joy kicks off on November 4th, 2023. The ship will depart from Miami and sail to Nassau for an "exclusive island party" before heading to the private island of Great Stirrup Cay and returning on November 8th.
