Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella today responded to news circulating yesterday that Live Nation intended to purchase a majority stake in his company.
“I haven’t signed a deal with anyone,” Rotella said via Twitter.
“I’ve talked to interested parties but nothing is done. If anything changes headliners will know first. I’d only do a deal if it benefited the headliners [referring to his festival attendees] . That’s just how it is…”
He later tweeted, “if partnering with someone made Insomniac better I would do it. That’s the only way. I’ll keep you all informed.”
Live Nation’s EDM family already encompasses the HARD Events, Cream, and Creamfields brands, of whom Insomiac has partnered with for the upcoming EDC Las Vegas and EDC London.
