Insomniac genius Pasquale Rotella brought in over sixty artists for Beyond Wonderland 2015. Beyond was held at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino where more than 70,000 people attended. All four different stages provided just the right level of variety on March 20th and 21st.
The 18+ festival’s lineup was top notch, including big names such as Tiesto, Knife Party, and Dillon Francis. On top of that, Beyond Wonderland delivered in a big way ambiance-wise. San Manuel teemed with eccentric, enthusiastic performers that added to the overall experience. Furthermore, food trucks, arts, crafts, yoga, camping sites, and silent disco areas all added to the fun.
Beyond Wonderland’s 2015 Lineup was a great mix of deep house, drum and bass, progressive house, and trappy dubstep. These acts were spread across four stages:
•Queens Domain (Main Stage)
• Mad Hatter’s Castle (Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Trap)
• Cheshire Woods (Deep House)
• Funk House (Funk & Deep House)
Beyond Wonderland 2015 was held at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino. It is the largest outside music venue in the United States. Owned by LiveNation, the amphitheater will be closed this winter due to weather conditions.
Although camping at Beyond Wonderland 2015 was a wonderful idea in theory, the two and a half hour wait to have your car searched, followed by the shower water running out three times, put a damper on the festive mood. This being said, the positive crowd energy and overall theatric, mixed with wonderful artist sets made Beyond Wonderland 2015 special. These positives, combined with Insomniac’s reputation for listening to constructive criticism and improving festivals makes Beyond Wonderland a festival you can’t miss.
