  • Camp EDC Update! 🚌⛺️I’ve heard your requests for more spots in the campground and have been figuring out solutions. While we simply don’t have any more Shiftpods to add, I’ve worked with the team to create more space for RVs in an adjacent lot behind the grandstands. This area will have a chill zone, food trucks, General Store with beer & ice, its own dedicated bathrooms and showers, but will be further from the Mesa than the other RVs. Definitely bring a 🚲 or 🛴! Camp EDC is poppin’ and we’ve maxed out on spots this year so there’s only a limited amount of these RVs! Passes go on sale this Thursday at 12PM PT✨

  • 🙌🌕🔥 What an amazing @NocturnalWland weekend! Big thanks to everyone who came out to camp and party with us — the full moon energy was definitely present and intense! 
This Nocturnal was truly special for me. I met so many incredible new people this year and got to link with lots of old friends and rave family. I hope you felt that same magic and sense of community that I did. I’m aware of the issues some of you experienced with wayfinding and campground logistics, as well as leaving the festival on night one. Your comments and DMs always help me correct any challenges that can pop up — so keep them coming! Night two was much smoother, and I will make sure things are improved in the campgrounds and festival exits next year. ✨

Nocturnal is America’s longest running rave, and next year we celebrate its 25th anniversary. YOU are a major part of that history. I’m currently working out all the details for next year, but I can promise you it’ll be epic. Thank you to all the artists, our entire Insomniac crew, and of course each and every one of you who raved with me this year. I feel so grateful to be a part of this community. 😎💚 Next Stop: @EscapeHalloween 😈

  • 대한민국! 🙌😎
South Korea, I fell in love with your positive energy and free spirit. The vibe at EDC this past weekend was unreal, and reminded me of that raw rave energy here in SoCal — made me feel right at home! What a perfect addition to the Insomniac vision of connecting people worldwide. I also got to meet so many international travelers and members of our American military stationed in Korea. Beautiful souls everywhere, no judgements, and a generous and helpful community really feeling the music and living in the moment. A special thank you to all of you! What a trip!

Definitely have to thank our amazing partners at EDM&CO and all the artists who came out to play and support. Thank you Seoulland for hosting, and a massive thanks to the Korean government and the entire city of Seoul for welcoming us. For those who have not made it to Korea, I highly recommend it. Hopefully EDC can become a date to plan a vacation around—you will not be disappointed! I am so hyped for Escape Psycho Circus Korea next month, until then have a Happy Chuseok and see you again soon!

  • It’s official! I’m happy to announce that Insomniac will bring the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival back to Florida! 🌀🙌 I’m a big fan of what the Okeechobee team has built, and honored to be able to lead such a unique event and continue the journey. This is one of the most beautiful locations I’ve ever set foot in. The trees and jungles, the beach, the open fields. Sunshine Grove has a powerful energy...and this environment helps create a truly special festival! ✨

Insomniac will be curating the lineup and handling all aspects of the festival, and will be staying true to the heart and soul of Okeechobee and preserving its eclectic nature. As someone who tries to always put culture first, I recognize how passionate this extraordinary community is. I’m excited to deliver you an amazing and diverse lineup that crosses all genres, interactive art installations, activity programs that emphasize wellness and mindfulness, delicious and healthy local food options, and much more that will make this caption longer than it already is! 
Okeechobee is all about living in the moment and capturing the magic of the experience, and I’m excited to bring this festival back and make it better than ever. See you in Sunshine Grove next year! 😎🌀💛 @okeechobeefest #EnterThePortal

  • MASSIVE weekend at #HSMF2019! Thank you all for coming through and representing! This was definitely my favorite HARD Summer. I was very happy with the dust control, as well as the extra shade, fans, water cannons, and misting to cool people down. Knew I had to help step it up, so I hope it made things better for you. I definitely want to make parking and ride-sharing easier next year—we are always trying to improve. Shout out to all the amazing people I met at the Insomniac Passport Lounge on Saturday night. It got a little crazy. Truly humbling—and apologies to anyone I didn’t get to meet! Lastly, huge props to @metalmeg and the entire Insomniac team for working so hard to make this a great experience! 🙏😎 See you at @NocturnalWland!!

  • Space is one of the most iconic dance music venues in the US if not the world, and I’m excited that Insomniac is now a partner. Davide, Coloma and Sinopoli have done an exceptional job revitalizing this venue to be better than it’s ever been before. They are passionate people that care about creating experiences, and share the same core values that Insomniac lives by. The Space Invaders team will still be running the show and together we will set the bar for entertainment in Miami. Space is another important piece of the Insomniac vision coming together. 👁‍🗨👾 photo: @adiadinayev

  • @InsomniacLTD is our new clothing line reflecting the past history and current influence of dance music and rave culture. It’s something I’m very passionate about, and if you’ve been following me, you’ve seen me wearing a lot of our new pieces. LTD is inspired by a time when what connected us was an entire lifestyle. The clothes, the music, the flyers, the community, the secret parties in warehouses, fields, and the open Southern California desert. 
For a few years now we’ve seen the influence of rave culture emerging in fashion lines, but high fashion brands are not culture brands. They follow trends, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Insomniac is a lifestyle, and we’ve been pushing the culture since the early warehouse days. I’m blessed to be able to work with the most amazing partner in Insomniac LTD, the founder of Freshjive, Rick Klotz. 
With Insomniac LTD we hope to inspire a new era in rave fashion and dance music inspired style, and combine influences from throughout the years with new cuts and fabrics. We’ve invested a lot in these garments, creating them from the highest quality materials. These are pieces we want you to own for a long time & be proud to show them off wherever you are. THANK YOU to all the Headliners who rock our gear and support the vision!

  • Finally back from Electric Forest! 🙌It’s hard to put into words how much fun I have exploring the forest with my kids & extended rave fam! The weather reports looked pretty rough leading up to the weekend, but you all came out regardless, and in the end Mother Nature treated us well!

Gotta say a big THANK YOU to the Insomniac EF Team, Madison House and all the amazing staff who pour their heart and soul into this festival every year. And special shout out to the couple that blessed us with this totem...you helped me keep our rave fam together all weekend thru all our crazy adventures! See you all next year! 😎🌳✨
