EDC Guangdong is surely a hot topic among EDM fans in East Asia after last weekend, but the festival has elicited murmurs Stateside for different reasons. A piece of literature apparently distributed by Insomniac warned that performing artists can be arrested for using profanity on the mic.

"No swearing or bad language on the microphone during your performance today, or you risk being detained by the police," it reads. "You have been warned!"

A notice warning  EDC Guangdong headliners not to swear on the mic during their performances.

The warning doesn't advise against DJs cueing up songs containing profanity, and at the time of writing no artists billed for EDC Guangdong have reportedly been arrested for using profane language. 12th Planet, Porter Robinson and Zedd were among the artists booked for the 2018 edition, which took place on November 24th and 25th.
