EDC Orlando appears to be ‘unaffected’ by Tropical Storm Nicole, plans to have update

ORLANDO, Fla. — EDC Orlando is scheduled to kick off Friday through Sunday following Tropical Storm Nicole.


EDC Orlando is expected to take place at Tinker Field a day after Tropical Storm Nicole went through the area. Insomniac Public Relations Manager Page Bakunas told WFTV that organizers are assessing the venue and checking for damage.

We have a small crew currently on site doing a full assessment of the festival grounds. Stages and scenic festival elements appear to have been unaffected at this time. We will be able to provide an update to all attendees once that has been completed and weather conditions improve this afternoon,” said Bakunas.

EDC Orlando on Twitter shared that “Will Call hours” have been adjusted with Thursday’s hours set from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The lineup for EDC Orlando includes dozens of acts each night, including Afrojack, Kaskade, Tiesto, Martin Garrix, and more.

On Nov. 7, EDC Orlando on Twitter shared that it was aware of the weather heading to the area. EDC Orlando said at the time that “conditions are still favorable for EDC this weekend and most storms are expected to pass by the time we open doors for everyone.”

Bakunas told WFTV said organizers are planning to have a full update later Thursday afternoon. There is currently no official word on exactly what time that will be.
