Deadmau5, Eric Prydz, REZZ & More: Your EDM’s Stage Guide to EDC Orlando 2019

EDC Vegas may still be the flagship Insomniac event, but a smaller spin-off has become its own force of nature. It’s suitable for a festival set in a state threatened by hurricanes, heat waves with scolding sunburns and the dreaded Florida Man. Thankfully, this festival is in November, away from hurricanes and the worst of the Florida sun. No promises on Florida Man though…but expect a lot of happy ravers.

EDC returns to Orlando next weekend, this time running three days and spanning five stages. EDC Orlando launched nearly nine years ago in May 2011 at Tinker Field, with artists such as Skrillex, Calvin Harris and Goldie on the lineup. Flash forward to 2019: EDC Orlando is still at Tinker Field, but has expanded to be almost a new event entirely.

Last Friday, EDC Orlando announced the festival’s daily lineup by stage, and it’s exciting to see the breadth of talent on display. From pure EDM to rolling tech house, EDC Orlando’s lineups and stages have something for everyone.

Need help deciding who to see? We’d like to help. We picked our favorite artists for each stage, three for each of the bigger stages (kineticFIELD, circuitGROUNDS and neonGARDEN) and bonus picks for the two smaller stages (the debut of stereoBLOOM and the

Insomniac Drops Map and Set Times For Escape Psycho Circus 2019

Insomniac Drops Map and Set Times For Escape Psycho Circus 2019

Set times are officially out for Escape Psycho Circus, going down this Friday and Saturday at NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA. It’s always a joyous occasion whenever set times are released as headliners can revel in the joy of all the amazing music they’re about to witness. However, it can also be a time of sorrow when you see the time conflicts and all the acts you won’t be able to see. Nonetheless, the show must go on. We’re here to help you navigate the two days of Halloween-themed madness that is the Psycho Circus.

This year’s edition of the festival will feature a completely new layout and new stage designs. Gone are the Slaughterhouse, Ghoul’s Graveyard, Chopping Block, and Cannibal’s Tea Party. In are the Grimm, Psycho Circus, Sanitarium and Sewer District. There’s also a new central hub of the festival called Crazy Town. I am beyond excited to see what Insomniac has in store for us for this year’s edition of Escape.

Back to the set times. The Grimm will be hosting all of the heavy hitters over the weekend. Dillon Francis, Timmy Trumpet and Duke Dumont highlight Night 1 with deadmau5 closing things out. Night 2 highlights include Don Diablo, RL Grime and Alok, with Alesso closing out the weekend. The second stage is the Psycho Circus, Bassrush will be holding it down on Night 1 with a stacked lineup including Bear Grillz, Borgore, ATLiens, and the

Eric Prydz Teases Eight Unreleased Tracks In Return Of EPIC Radio

Eric Prydz brought back his EPIC Radio on Beats 1 with a stellar, hour-long mix filled with new and old music. Though the mix only contained twelve tracks, an astonishing two thirds of that was unreleased music.

After starting the mix with “Terminal 5” from his latest Pryda EP, he dove right into unreleased tunes “My Freedom” and “Fabric Test,” as well as an unreleased collaboration with Steve Angello, “Bedtime Stories.” He ended the show with 5 IDs in a row, including desperately desired songs from his Lollapalooza, HOLO London, Holosphere, and Creamfields sets.

Prydz just released his Pryda 15 Vol III album a week before the mix went live on Apple Music, so to come back with so much still unreleased music was a real treat. You can listen to the full mix below.

01. Pryda – Terminal 5
02. Pryda – My Freedom
03. Pryda – Fabric Test
04. New Order – True Faith (Sam Ball Remix)
05. Eric Prydz & Steve Angello – Bedtime Stories
06. Pryda – Nile
07. Pryda – Joyous
08. Pryda – Spy2
