Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival makes its return to Orlando for the 8th time and this lineup proves they’re committed to bringing the dark and groovy sounds to Central Florida. Insomniac has once again impressed with their artist selection which covers the diverse dance music scene in Florida.
EDC Orlando normally runs three stages including the kineticFIELD, circuitGROUNDS, and the neonGARDEN. kinenticField is your mainstage which meets all expectations of an Insomniac event. It normally includes a colossal stage setup with lifelike features that move throughout the night, stage performers, fireworks, and the hard hitting mainstream sounds of Dance Music. This year we see massive names such as Martin Garrix, Tiesto, Kaskade and Alesso.
We see major moves being made for house and techno lovers as it appears we are going to have two full days of darkness. The neonGarden has been extremely successful over the years at EDC Orlando as house and techno has become more and more dominant. We have seen Insomniac bring in tons of acts from Dirtybird over the years as a way to ease Florida into the darker side of Dance Music. I must say that I am very happy to see Insomniac finally release the beast on Orlando as we get two full days of pleasure. The sounds of the neonGARDEN will be brought to you by Jamie Jones presents: Paradise and Nicole Moudaber presents: MOODZONE. Some spotlight artists we will see on this stage include Hito, Pan-Pot, Tiga, Kevin Knapp, and the Martinez Brothers.
Check out my Spotify Playlist to explore the sounds of the 2018 edition of the neonGARDEN.
The circuitGROUNDS is home to the heavy sounds of the BASSRUSH Experience which includes names such as Bassnectar, The Prototypes, Ganja White Night, Space Jesus, Boogie T b2b Squnto as well as Midnight T. We may also see Kayzo on the circuitGROUNDS but with his rising popularity Insomniac might be forced to place him on the kineticFIELD as a form of riot control. In years past we’ve seen Insomniac cover the circuitGROUNDS with a tented dome as well as bring the EDC Vegas structure which surrounds you with lights and sounds.
