After dazzling the EDC faithful with a spectacular drone show in Las Vegas last month, Insomniac will now sweeten the pot at the 2021 edition of EDC Orlando. According to a press release shared with EDM.com, each of the festival's three days will feature a unique show, wherein hundreds of iridescent drones coalesce in the night sky.
