The last two days in Mexico City have been an amazing experience and we’re so excited to share select images featuring Mexico’s largest dance music festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Mexico. This year, EDC Mexico broke attendance records with over 100,000 fans coming to enjoy its magical world.
Insomniac and local partner OCESA transformed Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez into a space intended to inspire the imagination of all those in attendance. Four stages of music, 100 theatrical performers, the Knight Owl art installation and over 70 of dance music’s top artists allowed fans to completely immerse themselves in the festival experience.
Spread throughout the grounds were a variety of interactive carnival-like experiences including a creative station where fans made their own personalized totems, a swing set, specialized photo booths and graffiti artists who created EDC inspired art as fans looked on.
Six full-scale carnival rides gave fans the choice to get an adrenaline rush or relax atop the festival’s signature Ferris wheel, which overlooked the kineticFIELD stage.
Like its sister stage from Las Vegas, the kineticFIELD stage in Mexico has been dubbed the “Kinetic Cathedral Stage,” and includes LED screens that create the illusion of detailed stain glass windows and two towering twin owls with expressive eyes that are illuminated by LED lighting. Standing at 90 feet tall and 240 feet wide, the Kinetic Cathedral is the largest stage Insomniac has ever built for EDC Mexico and the first time the stage has been built outside of the United States.
