EDC Las Vegas donates tents to the Hurricane Dorian victims
One of the biggest EDM festivals in the world, Electronic Daisy Carnival Las Vegas is showing to the public that the company behind it, Insomniac, is much more than just interested in profit and organising A-class events. They have sent out the tents that have been used in May at EDC Las Vegas to the Bahamas to grant the storm victims a shelter.
At the beginning os September Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas with maximum sustained winds of 185 mph (295 km/h), making it the most powerful tropical cyclone on record in the country’s history. At least 70,000 people were left homeless and need help after the category 5 storm has finally ended. The Love & Life Foundation based in Florida has made an inquiry for the tents and Insomniac has been more than willing to help out. They have shipped out somewhere around 750 of their tents, that have been described as “advanced shelter system” and will provide the much needed housing for the people who lost their homes during the storm.
Here is what the CEO and founder of Insomniac Pasquale Rotella said about their nice gesture:
“Insomniac strives to bring happiness to millions of people around the world. When we got the call to help with this relief effort, we didn’t hesitate.”
EDC Las Vegas is definitely making a difference on the scene with its actions and just confirming why they truly deserve to be called one of the best festivals at the moment. It can also be seen in the feedback that it has been getting lately, like selling out all of the tickets in just 48 hours for the 2020 edition. Let’s just hope that we will hear more stories like this in the future and show the public that there is so much more to the EDM culture than just crazy parties, colourful costumes and loud music.
