Though COVID-19 has adversely effected the worldwide music festival business, Electric Daisy Carnival continues to stay relevant with virtual shows, including their brand new announcement for 2021.

During the week of September 14th, Insomniac Events head honcho Pasquale Rotella teased that EDC would be making its storied return to Europe in 2021 for the first time since 2016’s EDC UK. On September 20th, the brand founder officially disclosed the coordinates of the event’s new home with the revelation of EDC Portugal. Spread across three days from June 18th – 20th, EDC Portugal’s inaugural edition will touchdown on the tropical beach of Praia da Rocha as part of the festival brand’s 25-year anniversary celebration. Five of EDC’s hallmark stages will be making the journey along with more than 140 acts that have yet to be revealed.

In a statement, Rotella explained why he chose the location: “I’m so excited to bring EDC back to Europe for Insomniac’s first-ever show in Portugal. Growing up as a surfer in California, the beaches along the coastline of Portugal have always been a dream destination of mine.” Check out the announcement below.
