Insomniac - EDC Las Vegas 2017

2017 was the fourth consecutive year Leisure Expert Group has been an important Insomniac partner for the design of America’s largest dance festival: Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.
The popular festival took place on 16th, 17th and 18th June at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, right in the middle of the Nevada desert and is organised at this location by Insomniac every year. The three day event annually attracts approximately 400,000 adventurous partygoers with an interest in music and art, who are mainly looking for an extraordinary experience. This is certainly abundantly on offer at EDC, with a complete range of eight different music stages, interactive art installations, various attractions, many imaginative acts and artists, food stalls and bars and even the possibility of getting married on the festival grounds.

“As every year, the MainStage of the festival is dedicated to a new story. This year, taking care of each other and the world, was the leading story. And what better way to visualize this with Gaia.

Love the world, embrace the headliners and come in peace.

MAARTEN VAN DEN BERG

PROJECT MANAGER

The Leisure Expert Group produced a number of different time code shows in addition to all the video content, including the spectacular opening ceremony, five different intermezzo shows, as well as the final show. These shows were all devised and programmed beforehand, making sure all the different effects, such as light, video content, fire, pyro, water and laser were perfectly timed, literally to the millisecond.

THE FINAL RESULT

KINETIC FIELD
The Leisure Expert Group has had the honour of designing and producing the main stage for four consecutive years. The Kinetic Gaia was opted for in 2017, following the Kinetic Cathedral in 2014, the Crystal Village in 2015 and the Kinetic Temple in 2016. Gaia, mother of all, is the central figure, and with her motto “All are welcome here”, she welcomed over 400.000 headliners divided over 3 consecutive days.
