San Diego Events Essential Guide To 2015 Beyond Wonderland
The same production company, Insomniac, who produces and owns every Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) festivals, also has a California based series of event’s with the title “Wonderland”. Created from “Alice in Wonderland”, the most fantastic ‘bigger than life’ music and art mini-fest happen throughout the year here in California with many of Alice’s world and experiences built in to each dance party event. Most event’s take 2 day’s but a few are 3 days.
Beyond Wonderland This March In So-Cal
There is “Beyond Wonderland”, which usually takes place in the bay area, but fortunately for fest addicts like myself In South California, I can actually attend this year for the first time and it is in Southern California, this March. It is being relocated to so-cal and will be the biggest “Beyond Wonderland” in its history. The location is in San Bernadino, which has a massive pavilion. Many stages are designed from scratch for each different fest. There are too many mind bending art installations and so much to discover all over the grounds. This year is very special because I can actually attend, being that is not in bay area and one of my fav of time DJ artist’s happens to be on line up: Carl Cox.
What Is It About Carl Cox
Carl Cox, who to me has saved me from so much negative life with only his House Music. My first Ultra fest in Miami I saw him and my first Coachella was all about his House music. Carl Cox is House music King who usually doesn’t come to the states too often. I think there is soul healing powers whenever he plays his magical beatz. I’m a House head and it isn’t for everyone. but if you are into music, are into musically, his beatz can make you dance with one note.
Escape From Wonderland: The Fun And The Horror
Another Wonderland that is a personal fav and I try to go every year if I can is The Escape from Wonderland. It’s a gathering of fun and horror put together for hollow’s eve. There are many sick crazy fun characters who are a part of the fest as living human art running around the grounds all fest long. It’s a true must go at least one time in your life event if you like a scary style dance party.
Nocturnal isn’t directly connected to the Wonderland series, it actually is it’s own fantasy world festival, straight out of a dream. The most amazing art is made for all 3 days and sometimes you can see the same art at other festivals. It takes place during fall, usually in September and Escape from wonderland is the follow up for Halloween. Camping is offered to most Insomniac events to allow safe dance party life at night.
The Last Wonderland of the fest year is White Wonderland, which I have never attended before, but just from the pure fact of it requiring everyone who goes must wear white and only white, I don’t even own white…anything. I do not think I will be going anytime soon.
Once there, the stages become some kind of magical dance party with everyone on spirit level wearing all white. It’s at the end of the year usually around Christmas or like this past Dec. it was on New Year’s Eve.
Insomniac has grown globally and continues to grow beyond its ability to top itself each year. It’s also blazed the path of expectations for other music festivals to try to attempt the same level of experience and fail to produce such an incredible world and with the line ups that are inner connected within Insomniac events, the music is never a letdown.
With a packed schedule throughout the year, I find it’s impossible to attend all, but really love and can’t wait for next fest. Beyond Wonderland is calling me and is only now a handful of weeks away.
Bartender: Drink Please!
My drink of Choice during fest life is simply the Energy drink mixed with vodka and of coarse my fav beer Heineken. It all switches up with which sponsor is hosting the festival. With multiple days and long dance parties, energy drinks are a must.
2 oz Vodka (new fav is from Texas called TITO’S)
2oz Monster or Red Bull (zero style=no sugar no cal)
½ oz of cranberry
