It’s almost October, which means it is almost time to return to the Psycho Circus! Insomniac is getting ready to put on the 6th edition of it’s Southern California festival: Escape. Escape is set to be held at the NOS Center in San Bernardino on October 28-29 Other than EDC, Escape has always been my favorite festival, and I have high hopes for this year! Here are some things I would like to see.
A lot of us are experiencing EDC withdrawals right now. Yes, it’s a real thing. While some are preparing for HARD Summer, Nocturnal Wonderland, HARD Day of the Dead, and Escape: Psycho Circus; there’s not much for the Northwest Rave Family. However; in Lake Tahoe there’s a festival called Bass Camp, and this year is Bass Camp’s biggest year!
One of the great things about EDM is, there’s a little bit of everything for everyone! With so many artists, there’s many different sounds for different personalities, and the artists even perform in different styles. There are artists who use CDJs, there’s artists who use vinyl, and there’s artists who play their music live. In this a new series I’m doing, where my goal is to find talent that you probably never heard of, and show them off to you! My first artist that I want to introduce is the Los Angeles based group: Citizun.
One of the most important and underrated things at most music festivals is the art. Promoters often call for artists to design unique sculptures or paintings to display their event, to make it more visibly pleasing. Well on May 27, Fresh Bakin’ is holding a fundraiser, entitled: The Space whale, to help raise money for the newest art piece to be displayed at the Burning Man Festival, and Skrillex is headlining!
