Now in its fifth year, Insomniac’s annual EDC Las Vegas charity campaign recognizes Communities In Schools (CIS) of Nevada as the beneficiary of this year’s fundraising event.

In partnership with online fundraising platform Surreal, Insomniac’s charity initiative has expanded with a dual program designed to offer both auction and sweepstakes experiences, which will raise funds to benefit CIS of Nevada, one of the nation’s leading nonprofit organizations dedicated to dropout prevention and providing students with a supportive community that empowers them to stay in school and achieve success.

Now through May 3 at 11:59 p.m., fans can donate or bid to win one of ten once-in-a-lifetime experiences at givesurreal.com/edc2019.

This year’s sweepstakes and auction packages offer premium VIP experiences in addition to exclusive meet and greets with some of the biggest artists on the 2019 EDC Las Vegas lineup. The sweepstakes will allow Headliners the chance to win unbelievable prize packages, where each winner will be chosen at random.

Participants will have the option to donate $5 for one ticket, $20 for five tickets, $50 for 20 tickets or $100 for 50 tickets for the chance to experience the Ultimate VIP weekend at EDC Las Vegas 2019.

In addition, fans can choose a bundle pack donation for $50 which includes five entries into each of the four sweepstakes experiences offered, $100 for 20 entries into each, or $200 for 75 entries into each. Each experience package will include two VIP tickets to EDC Las Vegas*.
