Wide Awake Stories is a new monthly radio show hosted by Insomniac’s editorial team. We shine a spotlight on the fans, the artists, the DJs, and all the vibrant and creative people who make this culture so unique.
Community is the focus of this month’s show, so it’s only fitting that we bring you a fully stacked lineup. Our own Desiree Naranjo breaks down how Insomniac Cares is helping our festival communities, while Electric Family cofounder Drew Nilon comes through to chat about how artists are finding creative ways to give back.
Moderators and admins from EDM Madness, Reddit and Insomniac Ravers talk about growing and protecting their very different online communities, and Brad and Dela from Moontribe share their unique stories about SoCal’s beloved 25-year desert institution.
Kennedy Jones discusses the community-minded motivations behind his Never Not Gang in advance of his clothing gathering in Downtown Los Angeles, and last but certainly not least, the one and only Nigel Ficke tells the tale of how he soothed a rowdy crowd at EDC Orlando 2012.
