EDC’s flagship music festival takes place in Las Vegas and is typically held in May. However, due to vaccination warrants in Clark County, the event has been rescheduled for October 22-24 in 2021. Last year EDC was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
A host of electronic music artists from around the world perform at EDC. Last night Diplo, Martin Garrix, Deadmau5 and DJ Snake took to the stage. Popular rapper Lil Nas X also made a surprise appearance when Diplo performed his set.
EDC Music Festival fascinates Mike Tyson
In September 2019, Mike Tyson invited Pasquale Rotella to his Hotboxin ‘with Mike Tyson Podcast. The duo have spoken at length about their interest in dance music festivals, especially EDC.
Tyson said his perception of EDC runs deeper than most people think. According to the 55-year-old, it’s more than “just people dancing” in one place:
âIt’s more like a spiritual treat. That’s how I see itâ¦ One day I look at people and I said ‘Wow! It’s an army. I don’t like leading this army. like getting involved in this business “. It is power. It’s more than people dancing. It was like a political declaration. It is the power of all points of view that you know. People from all parts of the world, so disenfranchised, and a time in life, they become franchises and they never want to deny themselves the right to vote again. Imagine that. You could have the whole world doing this. How do you get the whole world to do this at the same time? ”
