EDC Spectacular with Enteetainment
UK – On behalf of Festival Republic, Dick Tee of enteetainment Ltd, was thrilled to be asked to look after the technical production management of the recent EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival) show in Milton Keynes Bowl, working alongside his counterpart, world renowned production manager Jake Berry, who was representing Los Angeles based Festival producers ‘Insomniac’.
Electric Daisy Carnival UK returned to Milton Keynes Bowl for a one-day electronic dance music party that is unlike any other with the very biggest EDM and house DJs in the world performing in front of 50,000 dance music fans. The main stage built by Serious Stages was some 70m wide and incorporated a huge owl, a dragon and two ‘guardians’ as well as a massive 400m2 LED screen and a fully functioning waterfall! “It was a great challenge to be able to combine such a huge stage-based construction with so much creativity and artistic design,” said Tee. “Unlike conventional stages which offer complete weather protection to the performance area, the only ‘on stage roof’ comprised a small perspex canopy covering the actual DJ performer and their equipment with the rest of the construction acting as a supportive skeletal frame for the set and scenic panels and cloths, inflatables, lighting, audio, LED screens, laser and pryo effects.” In addition, there were a further three stages located in Big Top’s along with carnival rides, performers and art installations.
Throughout its 20-year history, Insomniac has produced more than 250 festivals, concerts and club nights throughout the world. The company’s premier annual event, Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, is the largest multi-day music festival in North America, attracting 400,000 fans over three days. The Milton Keynes event marks the ongoing collaboration between Insomniac and Festival Republic, whose portfolio of major events includes Electric Picnic, Latitude, Reading and Leeds Festivals.
