Who Doesn’t Like Data? EDM by the Numbers
Since the emergence of the electronic dance music (EDM) scene in the late 80s and early 90s, interest in this subculture has only grown. We’ve seen a rise in festivals, and DJs are touring nonstop to deliver EDM including house, techno, bass, dubstep and trap to audiences around the world. With an increase in festivals, production teams are working harder (and with bigger budgets) to curate unforgettable experiences. Let’s take a look at EDM by the numbers to see which DJs are bringing the money in, the festivals drawing the biggest crowds and what these numbers translate to.
The Top 10 DJs have pulled in a whopping $298 million this past year
The three largest music festivals in the world today include EDC Las Vegas (400,000 people), Tomorrowland (400,000 people) and Ultra Music Festival Miami (165,000 people) welcoming more than one million attendees this year. Combined, these festivals have generated more than $475 million in revenue.
The manpower behind organizing these weekend-long music experiences can’t be forgotten. Did you know that it takes a production crew of 12,000 people to set up for Tomorrowland over a period of 60 days? During the festival there are about 2,000 volunteers on the festival premises. EDC Las Vegas takes a production crew of 5,000 while Ultra Miami rounds up around 1,000.
