Thousands of ‘Lost & Found’ items left behind at EDC Las Vegas

The Electric Daisy Carnival was two weeks ago, but crews with Insomniac Productions — the company that puts on the three-day music festival — are still sifting through thousands of lost items that were left behind or misplaced during the event held June 17-19 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

“If you lost something at #EDC20, but never found it, take a look at our massive Lost & Found!” a social media post from Insomniac founder, Pasquale Rotella, read on Instagram this week. “From skateboards & backpacks, to car keys & wallets, we have a buncha stuff left behind.”

Just how many things were left behind? Insomniac said in a statement Thursday that the festival’s Lost & Found booth received about 1,200 wallets and IDs throughout the weekend. The booth also received 160 sets of keys, 570 cell phones and hundreds of other items such as apparel, accessories and bags.

“Insomniac has already matched 200 items to their owners, and they will be mailed out (Friday),” the statement said.

Anyone who may have left something behind at the festival is asked to email lostandfound@insomniac.com.

But Rotella asked for patience in his Instagram post: “The team is responding to more than 350 emails a day in the order they were received.”
