"The Insomniac team and I work so hard over here and care so much only to have taken a loss on this attempt to bring joy."
According to reports, over 160 members of the labor union behind Vegas' entertainment industry were slated to work at the festival.
The somber news arrives on the heels of a recent announcement by Pasquale Rotella that the festival's May 2021 dates were moving forward.
The Insomniac boss took to Reddit to quell concerns surrounding conflicting reports on the promoter's safety plan for EDC Las Vegas 2021.

The proposal notes that EDC Las Vegas is a "non-seated outdoor event" and "will not rely on social distancing as its method for health safety."
The EDC Las Vegas-specific job listings include the phrase, "Travel required in May."
In a new announcement, Pasquale Rotella said EDC Las Vegas 2021 is hinging on the approval of Nevada state officials.
The Insomniac founder also promised a more comprehensive update "soon."
