Insomniac and eBay Partner for EDC Week Charity Auction


Brace yourselves. A storm of PLUR is heading your way in the form of a charity auction, offering unparalleled opportunities to EDM fans to fulfill lifelong dreams. Partnering with eBay, Insomniac is launching their first ever EDC Week charity auction benefiting a local charity called Culture Shock Las Vegas. Using music and dance, Culture Shock Las Vegas uses music and dance to empower young people to stay away from drugs and violence.

Envisioned by Insomniac head honcho Pasquale Rotella, the auction’s goal is to provide once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to faithful dance fans while simultaneously helping the local community in Las Vegas.

Close to Insomniac’s side, EDC Las Vegas partners like the TAO Group, Maverick Helicopters and Hakkasan Group have put their heads together to develop more than 50 unique experiences for the 10-day online auction.

At a starting bid of only $0.99(!!), bidders have until Friday, May 15, at 9 a.m. PT to head over to for a chance to make dreams reality. Check out some of our favorite opportunities below (click here for the full list):
