Insomniac recently announced the return of the West Coast’s largest and most terrifying two-day dance music festival, Escape: Psycho Circus. For those who haven’t attended this festival before, be warned, it’s unlike any other. The NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, California is temporarily transformed into an immersive, haunting, circus-themed world, filled with creepy costumed characters, sinister mazes, and glow-in-the-dark art installations, all set to the soundtrack of the world’s top dance music artists.
Last year’s Escape: Psycho Circus saw a record-breaking 125,000 headliners over both days and more than 75 artists across the four monstrous stages, including Eric Prydz, Jamie Jones, Marshmello, Nicole Moudaber, Rezz, Tiësto, and Zedd. For the 5,000 who dared to enter the intricately designed interactive Asylum, a mind-blowing experience filled where revolving carousels, contortionists, fortunetellers, and burlesque shows awaited them.
The Asylum is a one-of-a-kind twisted Wonderland experience in which fans are transported through 30 distinct environments featuring over 120 costumed performers amidst 32,000 square feet of movie-quality set designs and special effects. This year’s Asylum will feature an additional “padded room,” as one of the first stops into the Mad Hatter’s mind, designed to double the number of attendees going through the asylum while minimizing wait times.
This year’s festival will take place at the NOS Events Center on Friday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Oct. 27. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 13 at 12 p.m. PT on
See you this October for an unforgettable experience!
