Nocturnal Wonderland: Music, Dancing & Dark Enchantment

Sep 04 2015

Twisted. Dark. Enchanted. Insomniac's infamous Nocturnal Wonderland showcases the sinister sounds of the autumn season with a three-day camping festival with world-class DJs, uniquely themed stages, and incredible art installations throughout the San Manuel Amphitheater and Grounds in San Bernardino. Headliners of this Labor Day weekend event include Bassnectar, Sander Van Doorn, Andy C, Pretty Lights, Booka Shade, Armin Van Buren, Kaskade, Sa$ha, Knife Party and Flo$$tradamu$.


When darkness descends every evening and the night begins to rise, it creates a palpable energy that you can feel – from the goose bumps on your skin to the wild flights of fancy that invade your mind. This is the energy that Insomniac's Nocturnal Wonderland tries to capture every year, launching the city of Los Angeles into the fall season with a twisted cavalcade of dance music and creative expression. Taking place over Labor Day Weekend at the San Manuel Amphitheater and Grounds in San Bernardino, Nocturnal Wonderland presents an enchanted realm of world-class music and unparalleled production. Do you dare? Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2015, this year's festival promises to be the best ever – with more art installations, bigger DJs, intensified experiences and a wilder crowd. Whether you like your dance music dark and minimal, raw and bass-ridden, or flung into the far reaches of the netherworld – you'll find it during this three-day event. Arrive on Friday to hear sets from Datsik, Z-Trip, Sander Van Doorn, Andy C, Armin Van Buren and Basscon's hard dance stage. On Saturday, the scene stealers will be David Guetta, Pretty Lights, Paper Diamond, J. Phlip, Worthy and Knife Party. Stay for Sunday so that you don't miss performances by Bassnectar, Kaskade, Sa$ha, Flo$$tradamu$, Donald Glaude and Booka Shade (live). Buy a camping pass and make a whole weekend of it – travel to a darker dimension and immerse yourself in Nocturnal Wonderland.


For 20 years, Nocturnal has delivered its unique themed stages to the dance-loving crowds of Southern California. The festival has been held at numerous locations, including the Coachella Valley Indio Polo grounds, NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, and Downtown LA.

If you plan on camping during the three-day party, arrive as early as possible to claim the best space for your crew. Doors to the campgrounds open at 4PM on Thursday, the day before the festival starts. You'll have to pack up and be out by 3PM on Monday.
