To celebrate the momentous 25th anniversary of its illustrious EDC brand, Insomniac is returning to Europe to further expand the festival's horizons.

Insomniac representatives took to the company's EDC Las Vegas Twitter account, among other social media platforms, to tease a "VERY special location" in Europe to commemorate the landmark milestone. "It’s been an incredible 25 year journey with so many of YOU beautiful people from around the Globe. Let's celebrate as we come full circle for our return to Europe!" the post reads. It also features a promo video, soundtracked to Seven Lions' single "Another Way (with April Bender)," which reveals the return is scheduled for summer 2021.

EDC's empathic return to Europe represents somewhat of a watershed moment for Insomniac, who have experienced a tumultuous year thanks to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Founder Pasquale Rotella was forced to postpone a bevy of his most venerated festivals in the name of public safety, including Dreamstate SoCalNocturnal Wonderland, Escape Psycho Circus, and the Orlando edition of EDC. He did, however, announce a brand new oceanfront house music festival called Day Trip, which is scheduled for July 3rd, 2021 at Pier 46 at the LA Waterfront. Tickets sold out in rapid fashion.
