Insomniac's longest running festival, Nocturnal Wonderland dropped one heavy lineup this afternoon. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Nocturnal will be taking place over a full three days at the beloved San Manuel Amphitheater during labor day weekend with a soundtrack that is nothing short of extraordinary. Sure, we can go back and forth stating the obvious repeat DJ's -- but let's just focus on the positive, shall we?
Stacked with talent from every end of the electronic music world, there's a vibe for everyone and feels all around. Hardstyle, Techno and Trip Hop genres received a hefty shoutout with the addition of industry favorites and debut American acts. The ladies of house are stepping up with a solid presence from Nicole Moudaber and J.Phlip, enticing househeads all around, the bassrush stage is making a highly anticipated return with their deafening wall of bass, and trance is being well represented with the king of feels: Armin van Buuren.
We can't forget about Techno... Adam Beyer's Drumcode along with Alan Fitzpatrick is guaranteed to knock the fluffies off your girl. And let's not forget the elephant in the room... The Audiotistic installment. I think I can speak for all of us pre-2011 party-goers that this sent a wave of nostalgia through our veins. The energy from the phase 1 lineup is profound, this is going to be another great year for Nocturnal. Can phase 2 match it?
Nocturnal Wonderland will return to Southern California September 4th - 6th, tickets are on sale now and payment plans are available. Pssst: Don't forget to catch a glimpse of the camping packages available! For more information check out the official Nocturnal Wonderland website.
