pasqualerotella Everyone is entitled to their own opinion about records, DJs and dance music, including @tompettyofficial. We’re living in a very electronic era with constantly evolving forms of entertainment, which may be a daunting thing for a classic rocker in search of contemporary social relevancy as he starts promoting new music. But I would think that someone who played shows with Dylan and the Dead—someone who lived through and actively contributed to the counterculture era of the ’60s and ’70s—wouldn’t be so quick to drink the overhyped media Kool-Aid about our festival experience. If he wants to come to @edc_lasvegas next year and see what it’s really about, we’ve got a ticket with his name on it. If he doesn’t want to wait that long, @nocturnalwland is right around the corner. My Mama Irene would be stoked to meet him! Who knows? He might just have a “Change of Heart." 13min
  •   keepinitrob @pasqualerotella you are an inspiration Pasquale! I've been going to raves for a year or so and this was my first EDC and let me tell you...best experience ever! People have their own opinions and views about this but at the end of the day your fans (including me) are so grateful and blessed to have a man like you! You've opened my eyes so much. I know you might not read this but if you do, I just want to say THANK YOU for letting me be apart of this! Can't wait till next year!!! Much love and respect -Rob 2min

  •   zaaiidd3 Very well said sir!!! ^_^ @pasqualerotella 1min
  •   ebbzz3 @pasqualerotella facts are facts though even though it's not your fault people are dying at your events but two people died this past edc there is no koolaid drinking in his interview about the facts the whole thing about not wanting to pay to watch some spin a record that's another thing that's his opinion but those two people aren't getting their lives back regardless of if people did drugs at @tompettyofficial concerts back in the day. I just don't get how people don't read that part of his interview 43s
  •   goodfellajoel Tom Petty is a complete idiot. He's talking about something he knows nothing about 35s

pasqualerotella Calling all @nocturnalwland headliners: show your creativity and give your crew a unique identity with a homemade festival totem! This year we’ve expanded our guidelines for totems (see below). We can’t wait to see what you come up with! #nocturnalwonderland #insomniac #socal #totemtribe ** Maximum of 10 feet tall
** No solid metal
** Must be made from a lightweight material (eg. foam, PVC, light wood)
** Lightweight material poles must be no thicker than 1 inch in diameter
** Collapsable camera telescoping extenders that follow the above guidelines are okay (eg. lightweight, hollow aluminum, polycarbonate)
** Inflatables attached to totems must be deflated upon entry

pasqualerotella Flashback to Insomniac Fridays! Some of my favorite memories are from those early parties…packed downtown LA warehouses, where we would dance and blast oldschool techno until sunrise. We lived for the music, as we still do today. The reason we created Insomniac in 1993 was to bring back the music and positive energy of the underground rave scene, which had declined sharply in the early 90s. At that time, if you wanted to go out and hear good electronic music, you had zero options except for a handful of seedy, cracked-out after hours clubs. Our mission was to create a safe, positive, and welcoming environment for electronic music lovers. My good friend Mojo, a former resident DJ at Insomniac Fridays, just put together a list of the “Top 10 Old-School Insomniac Rave Anthems”. It captures the spirit of those early events and includes a little bit of everything, from techno, to breaks, gabber and jungle. Check it out now at http://bit.ly/InsomniacOldschool! #insomniac #oldschool #insomniacfridays #warehouseparty #mojo #wideawakesince93 3d

  •   _brookestanton fuck ya @_dunnnn 4d
  •   4sublime20 @bobby_cue I've been wondering the same thing; if Paquale's love of owls has anything do with Moloch and the rituals performed at the bohemian grove? 4d
  •   dilynn @pasqualerotella Really hoping to see you at Nocturnal!! I'll keep my eyes out 4d
  •   _gabbii__ 4d
  •   wolfbased @4sublime20 What do u mean? 3d
  •   4sublime20 @wolfbased Look up bohemian grove and the owl deity they worship along with their ritual "sacrifices". On top of that owls have a lot of symbolism in the occult because they see in the dark. I'm not saying Pasquale is connected to all that, but maybe his investors are and they have some influences on these large scale productions, maybe in some way creating giant ceremonial rituals that we are all participating in. In either case, whether it is for good intentions or more sinister ones, raves are comparable to ancient tribal rituals where the community gets together around the fire (leds and lasers) and dances to the drums. Ultimately I feel it helps strengthen a feeling of oneness and purpose, creating more appreciation for life and the people around us. @meganreanne 2d

pasqualerotella Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. The first Insomniac party I ever organized actually fell on Halloween weekend of 1993. I’m excited to announce that we’ll be back in SoCal for TWO NIGHTS this year with Escape! This dark and twisted adventure will take place on Friday, October 31st and Saturday, November 1st.  We’ll have several unique themed stages of music to explore and many more surprises. Bring those positive Insomniac vibes with you and we’ll see you on All Hallows’ Eve! #insomniac #socal #escape #allhallowseve #halloween #party #festival #hauntedhouse #cornmaze #trickortreat #smellmyfeet #costumecontest #art #music #love #happy #smile #connect #positivevibes #goodvibes #wideawake #notaconcert #headliners #theslaughterhouse #thechoppingblock #ghoulsgraveyard #cannibalsteaparty 5d
