We had a great time putting the event together and we hope that you all had a terrific time at the show. This event was a special Daisy that we will always remember and we owe all of the performers, artists and DJs a special thanks, but most of all, here’s a shout out to each and every one of you who came and made it all possible!

We’ve posted photos from EDC in the gallery for everyone to check out.

Fatboy Skips But EDC Doesn’t Skip A Groove!

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009 at 11:00PM PST

Insomniac is disappointed by recent news that we have received. ?Fatboy Slim has decided to withdraw from this year’s festival citing “unavoidable family commitments” as the reason for the cancellation. ?But never fear! ?The Insomniac team has confirmed an amazing act for Saturday night. ?Groove Armada will now be DJing the kineticField on the floor of the Coliseum! We couldn't be more excited about adding the London big beat legends and are really looking forward to them rocking the main stage.

In addition, Insomniac will be announcing more talent on several stages as well as an additional area on Friday. ?The circuitGrounds stage, originally booked only for Saturday’s show, will now be in full effect on Friday night!

Again, we apologize for the disappointing news but rest assured we will not sleep until more slamming talent is locked down. ?Check back for news as it becomes available. Thank you for your understanding!
