Insomniac Announces Vaccination and Testing Mandate for All Events, Including EDC Las Vegas
As music festival organizers continue to navigate the complexities of COVID-19 restrictions, the nation's largest electronic dance music event promoter has announced new safety measures impacting all of its fests.
According to CEO Pasquale Rotella, Insomniac Events will now require prospective attendees to provide proof of full vaccination (both jabs) or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of any given event. The decision has the feel of a watershed moment for the electronic music event space, wherein many promoters have refrained from instating similar mandates with hopes that restrictions will soon be lifted.
Ubiquitously considered the leading festival organizer in the EDM industry, Insomniac has 12 U.S. fests scheduled before the end of 2021 as of this report's publication. Those include a number of the brand's most popular outings, such as EDC Las Vegas, Miami's III Points, and Beyond Wonderland Southern California, the latter of which will take place this weekend.
