Directors Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz, the team behind Katy Perry: Part of Me and Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, will direct the concert documentary EDC 2013: You Are the Headliner.
Insomniac, creator of the Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), is partnering with Haven Entertainment, who produced the upcoming rock documentary A Band Called Death, on the project, which will tackle the festival experience through the eyes of the fans and the creative minds behind the dance music festival.
EDC, which began with a few thousand partiers in Los Angeles, has grown into an over-the-top event filled with pyrotechnics, costumed theatrical performers, art installations and full-scale carnival rides that is expected to attract 345,000 people when it runs June 21-23 in Las Vegas.
“EDC has evolved into a unique pop culture movement and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to film it,” said Cutforth in a statement.
Lipsitz stated: “We’re inspired by the stories that come together at EDC – stories of love, music, youth and discovery, which are timeless.”
The film will focus on festivalgoers as they prepare to journey to EDC while also showing Insomniac team members in behind-the-scenes footage.
Fans can apply to be part of the documentary via http://edcthemovie.com where they can submit a letter and audition tape for consideration.
Insomniac and Haven Entertainment are producing with Insomniac founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella and COO Simon Rust Lamb as executive producers.
