Annual autumnal EDM extravaganza Electric Daisy Carnival has been canceled this year, with organizers hoping to make a return in 2021.

EDC creator Pasquale Rotella broke the news on an Instagram post Thursday night, though the announcement has not been cross-posted yet to either the EDC website or Facebook page.



EDC promoters optimistically had a ticketing site and Facebook event page up for the November event here in Orlando, but with no lineup announced, it did seem only a matter of time until the event was postponed.

All in-person EDC events this year, including EDC Las Vegas, Nocturnal Wonderland, Escape Psycho Circus and Dreamstate SoCal have been moved forward to 2021.



Rotella promises a 2021 return, and in the meantime EDC has done a number of livestreams and even a virtual "Rave-A-Thon" in May. So there may yet been some online EDC action for local devotees.
