Insomniac announced the daily stage lineups for North America’s largest Halloween music festival, Escape: Psycho Circus. On Friday, October 27 and Saturday, October 28, the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA will be transformed into an otherworldly dimension filled with four sinister stages, frightening costumed performers, immersive circus attractions, and the twisted Asylum experience. Those who dare to enter will witness sets from over 75 dance music tastemakers across two nights of nightmarish frights. General admission and VIP tickets are on sale now.
Escape’s massive Slaughterhouse stage will debut with a new design, presenting performances from mega acts like DJ Snake, Marshmello, and REZZ on Friday, followed by Afrojack, Duke Dumont, and Tiësto on Saturday. The Ghouls’ Graveyard returns with a larger footprint and a colossal lineup featuring the likes of Datsik, Flosstradamus, and Ghastly on Friday, and Eric Prydz, NGHTMRE, and Zedd on Saturday. Insomniac’s iconic brands Basscon and Audiotistic will curate the Chopping Block stage, bringing eclectic artists such as Angerfist b2b Miss K8, Coone, and Da Tweekaz on Friday, in addition to Baauer, Boys Noize (Live), and Slushii on Saturday. House and techno aficionados will enjoy sounds from the Cannibals’ Tea Party stage from major names including Jamie Jones, Green Velvet, and Joseph Capriati on Friday, as well as Chris Liebing, DJ Tennis, and Nicole Moudaber on Saturday.
Last year, Escape hosted its largest event in history with over 110,000 costumed fans reveling to the spine-tingling sounds of dance music’s biggest players. The Psycho Circus will return with intriguing pursuits like fortune telling, burlesque shows, tarot card reading, contortionists and tightrope walkers. The celebrated haunted Asylum will invite guests back to its realistic 3,200 square-foot maze with 30 distinct rooms and 120 creatures creeping around every corner. Blood-curdling screams will be heard from outside the Asylum’s towering gates, where fans will be strapped into straightjackets and masks upon entry.
