Texas EDM Fans Dealt Setback With Nocturnal Wonderland Pullout

For three consecutive years, Apache Pass near the Central Texas town of Rockdale has been the home of Nocturnal Wonderland, a multi-day electronic dance music festival that Texas EDM fans have counted on to kick off their EDM festival season.

The season is largely driven by L.A.-based supergiant promoters Insomniac Events, the company responsible for the lion's share of today's largest EDM festivals across the country, including Nocturnal Wonderland. But last Monday, Insomniac head Pasquale Rotella regretfully announced via Twitter that there would be no Nocturnal Wonderland Texas 2013. Despite the success of the previous Nocturnal Wonderlands held in Apache Pass, no reasons were given to fans to explain the cancellation.
