The November 2020 establishment of an “Insomniac East” Twitter account indicated that East Coast festival announcements were to come in some form and at some point in the future from Insomniac Events. Now, fans know what has been cooking.
Over the past few months, the account has been used to promote reduced-capacity events on the East Coast, but on February 21st, Insomniac used the social media platform to announce their Florida-based festival: Abduction (2021). In an email to Insomniac subscribers, the events promotion company doubled down and encouraged recipients to follow @InsomniacEast to “be the first to find out” details about the festival, noting that the lineup is “incoming.”
Preliminary details about the Orlando event were revealed in an Instagram post, that also contained information about the state of EDC Las Vegas and Beyond Wonderland‘s 2021 iterations. According to the release, Insomniac is “continuing to plan” both events and intends to honor the original dates, according to Pasquale Rotella, who alluded to “backup dates” should moving forward with EDC Las Vegas’ May 21 – 23 and Beyond Wonderland’s June 25 – 26 dates be deemed unfeasible.
