Insomniac - EDC Las Vegas 2018
Every year the EDC Las Vegas mainstage tells a new and exciting story. For the fifth consecutive main stage we have been responsible for the EDC Mainstage design. Together with Insomniac the theme Kinetic Love was created. For this particular stage Love was the main subject and was displayed by two giant 30 meter (90ft) high statues sharing one heart. The stage was built as a safe and sacred space where life should be celebrated together.
“Every year it is a joy to work with so many creatives from both Insomniac and Leisure Expert Group on these stages, and the amount of passion and love that goes into the designs is definitely visible when you see them come to life.
It is very interesting to see the stage designs evolve throughout the years. Technology has evolved as well. We can now fully render a stage design in 3D before even a single panel has been produced. When you are working on a stage that is more than 100 meters wide, this new technology helps to understand the sheer size of the stage.”
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.
