Electric Daisy Carnival will expand its flagship party this year with an inaugural festival taking place November 12 and 13 in New Delhi, India. The New Delhi version will reportedly feature both international and local acts.
This is not the first electronic music festival to take place in India. Sunburn, which originated in the country, takes place at the end of the year in Goa. And Tomorrowland, which originated in Belgium, held a version of their festival in Hyderabad for the second year in a row. Electric Daisy Carnival has thrown international editions in Britain, Mexico and Brazil.
"We see India as an exciting market to build a unique and special festival," Pasquale Rosella told Yahoo News. Rosella is the founder and CEO of Insomnia, Electric Daisy Carnival's parent company based in Los Angeles. "With a population of 1.2 billion people, half of whom are under 26, and connected through smartphones, the potential is incredible."
