EDC UK announces unexpected cancellation
EDC UK has been held annually in Milton Keynes since 2013. During its fourth run last year in July, the festival ran into some obstacles which included the death of an attendee and numerous complaints from other guests regarding lack of proper security or medical facilities. As a result, Insomniac Events and the local justice department were set to discuss ways to improve on these aspects in the festival in 2017
Unfortunately, it appears that a solution was not reached. A last-minute announcement on the website somberly states that “Our plans to grow & improve the festival at Milton Keynes had not developed as we had hoped,” and as a result, they will be “indefinitely postpone the show until we can properly re-imagine all areas of the experience.” The announcement also guided ticket holders to a separate page where they could find information on refunds.
Though London might have fallen through for EDC this year, the brand’s expansion remains unstoppable. EDC Mexico continues to gain steam as one of the largest festivals in the country, while November of 2016 saw the its first run in Delhi, India.
