THE WORLD OF EDC

As the day’s vivid colors wash over this picturesque landscape, our imaginations come alive. While others merely daydream, we seek true adventure within EDC’s otherworldly domains. In this place, we reaffirm that we are kindred spirits bound by a deep passion for music, art and discovery. And there is so much to discover.

Each area contained within EDC represents a distinct union of technology and nature, where elements mix to entice the senses and provide unique inspiration. Follow a path that leads from a green garden into an expansive, majestic field. Find peace in a meadow filled with other kindred spirits, all grooving to the same universal beat. Wander, explore, and unlock the energy of this magical place, and you will be rewarded with a truly beautiful experience.

Cities destroyed by sound and fury are now populated by relentless beasts that keep watch over the lurid landscapes. In this Wasteland, only the hard and the headstrong will survive. Who will lead the charge to take it back?
