Pasquale Rotella, the CEO of EDC and Insomniac Events (the company that runs the festival), is helping with relief efforts for people affected by recent storms in the Bahamas.
Rotella got involved in the relief efforts shortly after the storm happened via one of his event partners at EDC Orlando, coming on board to help the Love and Life Foundation provide resources and supplies to the victims of Hurricane Dorian. Insomniac Events is helping out by sending almost 1000 of the high-grade Shiftpod shelters that are used for camping at EDC Las Vegas, alongside a team of Insomniac employees that will help instruct Bahamians on how to use them.
In addition to that action, Insomniac has also set up a GoFundMe page encouraging those that attends its festivals to help raise $100,000 to go towards the disaster relief efforts. You can support that fund here.
Hurricane Dorian caused $7 million in damages when it hit the islands late in August. It killed at least 56 people, while 600 are still missing. A further 70,000 people have been left homeless by the disaster.
