In a report filed earlier this morning by Charlie Amter at the Hollywood Reporter focusing on the mainstream explosion of electronic music in this country, Insomniac president and CEO Pasquale Rotella revealed that the local edition of Electric Daisy Carnival won't be happening next year. "We couldn't gross enough [there] to support people's expectations," Rotella tells Amter, pointing out that even as the franchise has plans to expand into other markets on the East Coast and in Brazil next year (sixteen festivals are reportedly slated for 2012), our city will not be one of those hosting the event. Considering the undeniable dance-friendly domination of the Denver scene, this seems like an odd decision on Insomniac's part.
