Kaskade & Insomniac could win the title of biggest single headlining EDM event just weeks after Illenium
Just a few weeks ago we reported that Illenium’s special trilogy performance at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas could become the biggest single headlining EDM event in US history. With a capacity of 65,000, Allegiant has more than doubled most traditional arena shows and Illenium certainly has the star power to make it happen. Now, cascade and insomnia could possibly snatch that title just two weeks later at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.
While we seriously doubt that Insomniacs or Kaskade’s intent was to “usurp” the title from Illenium, the accomplishment would be remarkable nonetheless. SoFi Stadium, the new home of the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers, is located in Hollywood Park, a nearly 300-acre sports and entertainment destination. The 3.1 million square meter SoFi stadium is the largest stadium in the NFL and the first indoor-outdoor stadium. It sits about 70,000, expandable to 100,000, with more than 260 luxury suites and more than 13,000 premium seats.
“Every time I play in Los Angeles, it creates a feeling that is unparalleled anywhere else in the world. It’s the feeling of going to your own bed after being away for too long, it’s heat in the cold and it’s comfort when the fear plays along. Every show I play in LA is something I protect. I make sure I get right because it is so meaningful to me. LA is at home, ”says Kaskade. “Now that I come out of quarantine, I really want to do something special for the West Coast crowd as well as all of my fans who are willing to invest the time to travel. It has to be just right. There’s a legacy I’ve built here with LACC, Sun Soaked, Staples Center, and so many other of my favorite shows. I believe that being one of the first artists to introduce SoFi Stadium to the public is a rare and great opportunity and this show will be a career highlight for me. I am excited to share this with my audience and I am honored to be doing this in LA, my home. “
