The 1,000-acre complex will remain a fully immersive audiovisual adventure for the next two nights with dynamic art, special effects and décor creating interactive environments along with state-of-the-art lighting and sound production and a 15-minute pyrotechnics display. Based on ticket sales, Insomniac estimated that approximately 115,000 attendees experienced the first of EDC’s three nights.
