Insomniac announced today in Los Angeles, CA that they will be holding a 1 Year Anniversary Party in celebration of Paquale Rotella’s Night Owl Radio podcast. The party will take place on Friday, August 26th at Exchange LA, and will be presented by Rotella himself with special guest Tiësto, who will be making his debut at the venue.
“When we launched Night Owl Radio, I never imagined it’d become a #1 iTunes music podcast. For me, it was a passion project,” said Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac. “Every week I look forward to hearing new music, connecting with Headliners around the world, and hosting some of the most respected artists in the scene. I can’t wait to celebrate our one-year anniversary at Exchange LA this month.”
Night Owl Radio has produced over 50 episodes since its inception in August of 2015. Rotella debuted Night Owl Radio on SiriusXM Electric Area as a way to debut Insomniac festival announcements, host artist interviews, premiere exclusive guest mixes and unreleased tracks as well as communicate with listeners and dance music fans around the world. The podcast is now streamed in over 160 countries across 6 continents, and has also garnered more than 2 million downloads and streams across the iTunes and SoundCloud platforms. Night Owl is among the Top 100 music podcast shows on iTunes, and in May of this year, it became the No. 1 downloaded music podcast show as listeners tuned in to the much anticipated 2016 Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas lineup announcement. The mass influx of listeners who tuned in live for the lineup announcement caused SiriusXM’s server to crash!
The following artists have been featured on Rotella’s Night Owl Radio podcast: Laidback Luke, Oliver Heldens, Above & Beyond, The Magician, Markus Schulz, DJ Snake, Tiësto, Paul van Dyk, Martin Garrix, Paul Oakenfold, Dash Berlin, Axwell ^ Ingrosso, Dada Life, Infected Mushroom, Hardwell, Dillon Francis, Ferry Corsten, Kaskade, Avicii, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Flux Pavilion, Bassnectar, Eric Prydz, and Alison Wonderland. Night Owl Radio is expected to produce in the coming weeks a special 1 year anniversary mega mix and a Nocturnal Wonderland episode.
Night Owl Radio broadcasts live from the Insomniac HQ every Friday at 6pm PT /9pm ET on SiriusXM Electric Area, and tickets can be purchased here for the Night Owl Radio’s 1 Year Anniversary Party with Special Guest Tiësto!
