ABOUT DISCO DONNIE PRESENTS
Disco Donnie Presents (DDP) is an award-winning and recognized leader in electronic dance music event production, founded by veteran promoter James "Disco" Donnie Estopinal. Since the company's inception in 1994 DDP has sold over 17 million tickets producing over 17,000 live events, arena shows and outdoor festivals in over 100 markets around the world including the U.S., Mexico, Puerto Rico, Canada, Panama.

He is also known for producing major festivals such as The Day After, Sun City Music Festival and most recently Ubbi Dubbi, Sunset Music Festival, Ember Shores, Paradise Blue, Sunsoaked, and Freaky Deaky.
In 1999, Donnie first partnered with Pasquale Rotella, CEO of Insomniac Events. In 2008, the duo merged officially, setting their sights on strategically developing the Insomniac brand throughout the world and making Insomniac a household name. Working together, the pair ushered in events such as EDC Orlando, Dallas, Puerto Rico, New York; Beyond Wonderland Seattle; Nocturnal Wonderland Austin, and co-founded Electric Forest. The partnership also produced hundreds of club shows annually in markets across the U.S.
In 2012, DDP shifted its focus to the genesis and development of SFX Entertainment, as the first company to sign with founder Robert F. X. Sillerman; a media entrepreneur with a vision to invest nearly a billion dollars in electronic dance music to bring the world's leading promoters under one roof.
In 2017, Disco became a part of LiveStyle, which included a worldwide portfolio of top-tier event companies including, Disco Donnie Presents, React Presents, Life In Color, Made Events, ID&T, Tomorrowland, Sensation, TomorrowWorld, Beatport.com, Electric Zoo, Awakenings, Q-Dance, and more.
In 2020, James "Disco Donnie" Estopinal announced that he re-acquired sole ownership of Disco Donnie Presents (DDP), the namesake company he founded 28 years ago. This historic acquisition concludes an epic ten-year journey through being the first company acquired by SFX, surviving SFX's subsequent bankruptcy and becoming a part of LiveStyle.
