Insomniac Announces Strikingly Good Lineup for Escape: Psycho Circus

Every year, dane music fans circle Halloween weekend on their calendars as one of the premier fall festival weekends. In Los Angeles, dance fans must face the struggle of deciding between attending Gary Richards’ HARD: Day of the Dead and Pasquale Rotella’s Escape: Psycho Circus (formerly Escape from WonderlandEscape: All Hallows Eve.) However, that debate for this year has been settled this morning with Insomniac’s phase one lineup announcement for Escape, taking place on October 30th and 31st, while Day of the Dead will be held the following two days on November 1st and 2nd.

Escape: Psycho Circus will return to NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, California for its 5th year, bringing over 50 performers across the two days. Many attractions from years past will also be making their return, including 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. Among those playing at Escape: Psycho Circus are Above & Beyond, Blasterjaxx, and Eric Prydz on Friday, and DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, and Mat Zo on Saturday.

“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.”
