In the ongoing quest to become the Disney of the dance music world, Insomniac Events has announced Electric Daisy Carnival is touching down in Seoul, South Korea for its Korean debut in 2019.

The company’s flagship festival will be set inside the colorful, neon amusement park, Seoul Land, a venue procurement that Insomniac founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella promises will be an event unlike any EDC to date with roller coasters, carousels, arcades, bumper cars, a virtual reality cafe and more.

“Right now, there’s an energy around dance music in South Korea that inspires us to bring EDC there,” says Rotella in a press release. “We have a great venue, an amazing partner, and most importantly, a community that is embracing dance culture in an exciting way.”

In addition to hosting its annual domestic events in Orlando and Las Vegas this past year, EDC also made its mark on Tokyo, Japan, and the Chinese cities of Guangdong and Shanghai. Suffice it to say, Insomniac Events has dominated Asia’s fast-growing market for electronic dance music.

The festival’s line-up and dates are still under wraps, but headliners can learn more about EDC Korea by visiting the official website here.
