The November 2020 establishment of an “Insomniac East” Twitter account indicated that East Coast festival announcements were to come in some form and at some point in the future. Though the account has since been used to promote reduced-capacity events on the East Coast to date, on February 21, Insomniac used it to signal a new Florida-based festival, Abduction (2021). In an email to Insomniac subscribers, the events promotion entity encouraged recipients to follow @InsomniacEast to “be the first to find out” details about the festival and noted that the lineup is “incoming.”
Pasquale Rotella provided preliminary details about the Orlando event in an Instagram post that notably contained an unexpected update about the state of EDC Las Vegas and Beyond Wonderland‘s 2021 iterations. Insomniac is “continuing to plan” both events and intends to honor the original dates, according to Rotella, who alluded to “backup dates” should moving forward with EDC Las Vegas’ May 21 – 23 and Beyond Wonderland’s June 25 – 26 dates be deemed unfeasible.
