Today’s music festivals are more dynamic and interactive than ever before. Fans are exposed to a multi-sensory world of jaw-dropping stages, LED lights, ear-thumping speakers, art installations, pyro, and more. Insomniac’s EDC Orlando festival is at the forefront of creating these unforgettable experiences. At times, the need to document every moment can feel overwhelming for a fan.The challenge – how do we free up a fan to truly enjoy the festival, without fear of missing a moment? The solution – leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS) to power “My Festival Story.” A feature within the EDC Orlando festival app, “My Festival Story” memorializes the entire fan experience, generating photos, creating lists of artists and stages they visited, and producing custom festival playlists. All of which can be shared socially.

Fans can simply be fans once again.
