"Enough of New York — we want more Japan!" — that is the main idea for 2017 proclaimed by EDC. Pasquale Rotella, founder and CEO of Insomniac, first revealed the news on Sunday, December 4th in a Facebook post that provided an update on Insomniac's future plans and priorities:
"Although EDC New York 2017 was one of my favorites hosted in the Big Apple, we've decided to take a break in 2017," he explains. "We hope many of you East Coast headliners will join us in Vegas." — Pasquale Rotella
EDC Japan's inaugural edition will take place at Zozo Marine Stadium and Makuhari Beach in Tokyo on April 29 and 30 next year. The collaboration between Insomniac and partners GMO Internet Group, Creativeman and Live Nation Japan is EDC's fifth international destination.
"Dance music has become a global phenomenon that we are fortunate enough to share with our EDC communities around the world in India, Mexico, and the UK," says Rotella in a statement. "Taking EDC to Japan has been a goal that's years in the making, and I can't wait to deliver something really special in 2017."
