Insomniac has announced more than 50 incredible DJs from around the world that will perform across four sinister stages at Escape: Psycho Circus. The chilling two-day event is Southern California’s largest Halloween-themed dance music festival, creating a playful and frightening world for fans to explore. Escape will return to NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, California for its 5(th) year on Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31.
“Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and our entire team goes all-out to create a themed environment that celebrates not just the darker elements, but also the comedic and lighthearted side of Halloween,” said Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac. “We’ve got an incredible experience planned, and I know our Headliners will add their energy to this truly unique, two-day event.”
The Halloween festival has captivated fans with its changing event theme year to year. What began as Escape From Wonderland transformed into a new celebration last year, Escape: All Hallows’ Eve, and will now take on a new identity as Escape: Psycho Circus.
Escape is an event like no other, bringing together music and the ghostly, supernatural spirit of the Halloween season. Last year, fans weaved their way through multiple haunted mazes while the One-Eyed Monster Art Car and wicked costumed witches roamed the festival grounds. This year, Insomniac will bring four spooky stage designs to life including the towering 140-foot tall mega structure, spanning over 400 feet with amazing lighting and special effects.
The spine-tingling two-day adventure will also incorporate Insomniac’s trademark production elements such as Alice’s House of Horror and Looking Glass 3D mazes, ghoulish performers, carnival rides, fireworks, and many more surprises.
