Fundraising Platform Reveals EDC Week Charity Initiative

In everything they do, Insomniac strives to bring acceptance, love, positivity, upliftment, and escapement to the people who attend their events. This infectious and intoxicating feeling has overtaken the world and throughout its 25-year history, Insomniac has produced more than 1,200 festivals, concerts and club shows for nearly 5 million attendees over five continents. The company’s premier annual event, Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, is the largest dance music festival in North America and attracted more than 400,000 fans over three days. Combining their global popularity with their core values has led them to a partnership that is simply surreal.

Surreal is a fundraising platform that partners with festivals and music artists to offer their fans unforgettable experiences, with proceeds going to the charity of their choice. To participate, anyone can donate as little as $5 for a chance to win the experience –providing an engaging way to create positive exposure, raise awareness, and make a difference in the world. In partnership with Insomniac, the producers behind North America’s largest dance music festival, have just revealed nine massive fan activations to take place at the famed Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) Las Vegas May 18-20 and during EDC Week May 16 – 23.


This year, fans are given the option to bid on one of the nine customized packages, inspired by each of EDC Las Vegas’ singular, epic stages with donations starting at just $5, with larger donations yielding a larger number of entries into each experience. Proceeds from the campaign will benefit The Las Vegas Academy of the Arts, a nationally recognized, award-winning magnet high school offering conservatory study in dance, music, theater, and visual arts.

Fans who donate online will be entered for a chance to win experiences with EDC Las Vegas’ star-studded acts including a helicopter ride down the Las Vegas Strip with Kaskade, a table and meet and greet with Marshmello during his EDC Week show at XS, and a helicopter ride into EDC with Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella. In addition to the artist experiences, each winner will receive 2 VIP weekend passes to EDC, round-trip airfare, artist parking, and Desert Rose Premium camping packages for three nights.
