EDM Music Festivals Return for 2021

Whether it’s Wonderland or Oz, among dinosaurs or nocturnal creatures, electronic music festivals are meant to send attendees to another place. EDM itself is about the party from sunset to sunrise, allowing those in attendance to escape the daily drudgery, stress, and struggle. Without a doubt, we need that more than ever in 2021. After this past year, why not escape the real world, listen to music, dance among fields and under stars?

At the moment, these are the only confirmed EDM festivals in 2021. We will be adding more to the list as festivals are announced.
