Eight worlds within one energetic show

Insomniac, EDC Las Vegas: Kinetic Cathedral - 2014

For Insomniacs’ Electric Daisy Carnival, Leisure Expert Group was asked to design the Kinetic Field Mainstage, to take care of the intermezzo show production and to provide the whole with a storyline.

This resulted in ‘Kinetic Cathedral’: eight worlds within one energetic show during the largest dance festival in America.

With the main stage, Leisure Expert Group provided the largest of the seven stages at Electric Daisy Carnival.

“On the basis of our amusement park experience, we were able to anticipate the storyline with an energetic show between the performances by the DJs. First, we developed the concept and thought up the storyline for the main stage with the main theme of kinetic energy. This energy ensures that on this spot a world emerges where nature and technology come together.”

The stage that consists of a giant 3D decor and an LED screen the size of six tennis courts. EDC is more than dance alone: it promises an experience for all the senses. In this theme, the main focuses are life, love, art and individuality.

THE FINAL RESULT

The iconic Kinetic Cathedral complete with stained glass images, an altar for the DJs and protected by 2 giant barn owls at the side. Between twilight and dawn, the 125,000 visitors per night see how nature takes over this stage.

 

Leisure Expert Group provided the storyline, the complete design and the technical production of this 150-metre wide main stage and produced a total of nine dynamic intermezzo shows between the performances of the DJs.
Thanks to the show, which consisted of forty minutes of composed music, ten hours of video content, numerous special effects, a fireworks show, a water show and a laser show, giant inflatable owls and spectacular decor changes and performers, Leisure Expert Group succeeded in fitting seamlessly with the concept of EDC as a total experience for the visitors.
