Enter the Wolves Den: Nocturnal Wonderland
I recently joined thousands of festival goers to celebrate the 21st anniversary of North America’s longest-running dance music festival, Nocturnal Wonderland, at San Manuel Amphitheater and Grounds in San Bernardino, CA. Wrapping up the final weekend of summer 2016, headliners enjoyed an epic three-day, immersive music and camping adventure filled with black lit décor, eccentric costumed characters, never before seen art installations, and a soundtrack from over 100 groundbreaking dance music artists.
This year, Insomniac brought more live electronic acts to the festival stage than ever before, delighting festivalgoers with dynamic performances from the likes of Chromeo, Odesza, Keys N Krates, Hermitude, Gryffin, and more. It was so incredible to see headliners embellish their festival attire with black light DIY face paint and airbrush designs… all in the spirit of Nocturnal’s theme. I had such a blast enjoying all five themed stages, interactive art pieces, state-of-the-art production, mind-blowing special effects, roaming cars, captivating performers under the Nocturnal sky.
