More About READALOUD.ORG

15 minutes of reading aloud each day can change the face of education in this country.

We all agree there is an education crisis in this country, beginning with kindergarten readiness. There are tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of organizations working on the problem — yet the solution remains elusive.

Imagine if those talents and energies were united behind one key strategy to improve U.S. education.
Imagine if community leaders, employers, day care providers, preschools, schools and civic and faith-based organizations echoed that same message.

Imagine if parents and caregivers across the country repeatedly heard one clear and straightforward directive on how to improve their child’s readiness to learn.

Imagine if we all united behind one simple and powerful message: Read Aloud 15 MINUTES. Every child. Every parent. Every day.


FACT: Parents are a child’s first and most important teacher.

FACT: Reading aloud is the single most important thing a parent or caregiver can do to improve a child’s readiness to read and learn.

FACT: By making 15 minutes of daily reading aloud the new parenting standard, we will change the face of education in this country.

Get Involved! Support the 15 MINUTES message!

Electronic Daisy Carnival Headliner Fashion Trends 2013


From Las Vegas to London: Electronic Daisy Carnival + Upcoming Fashion Trends

Electronic Daisy Carnival (EDC) is the world’s largest electronic dance music and arts experience in the world. This festival is the flagship event of Insomniac and it’s owner / creator Pasquale Rotella.  For 16 years Insomniac has been bringing hundreds of thousands of fans to EDC a long 3-day weekend in Las Vegas.  This state of the art event brings together the best dj’s in electronic dance music and combines these powerhouse performances with lighting design, interactive circus and theatrical acts, carnival rides and audience participation for an unforgettable experience.  In his own words, Pasquale explains EDC is a “huge adult festival theme park, where like minded people who love LOVE and art, and want to nurture their soul come and dance.”  This year, over 345, 000 fans are expected to EDC Las Vegas over a three day period.

When I sat down with Pasquale Rotella in Las Vegas recently to discuss his career and EDC, you could tell his imagination is always going, thinking of the next big thing to bring to EDC.  I asked him what is one thing he wished EDC had. His response? “I wish you had to take a big huge slide to get into the event. Actually, you know what? We could do that” he exclaimed.  Clearly, he’s doing something right.  EDC will be operating again this year in Vegas June 21-23rd.  Tickets are officially sold out for Vegas this year. Try searching third party ticket vendors or book your trip to London! EDC is expanding to London this year on July 20th, 2013.  Pasquale says, “dance music got taken to another level in Britain. Music producers used to be all UK based.  Back in 1992 I was inspired by a rave there to do what I am doing now. It’s time to bring Electronic Daisy Carnival to Britain.”

Interview at Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, NV
A huge part of the experience at EDC, is the fashion.“Headliners” are the star of the show at EDC. Pasquale explains that “Headliners are all our guests and fans that come to EDC.  They are so important. It’s not crafty marketing to say we depend on and love our headliners. At Insomniac, we know that the fan makes the party.” At this very moment, a headliner walked right past us in the Chandelier Bar inside the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas as we were chatting. She was wearing an EDC branded tank top and Pasquale starting enthusiastically chanting “EDC! EDC! E-D-C!” Unfortunately for her, she didn’t recognize him, and just kept walking. I giggled quite a bit with his publicist who had joined us, and got a good laugh out of it.

Headliners show up to EDC in elaborate costumes, tutu’s, bright colors, and just about everything imaginable.   What to wear is a way for headliners to “show their individuality and express themselves. Really, this expression is what makes the event” Pasquale explains.  So what will you be wearing to EDC this year?
