Insomniac Announces the Return of Escape: Psycho Circus, the West Coast’s Largest Halloween Festival

 

 

Tickets for Insomniac’s 8th annual two-day Halloween Festival and Freak Show go on sale on Friday, July 13 at 12 p.m. PT on EscapeHalloween.com 

Insomniac has announced the return of the West Coast’s largest and most frightening two-day dance music festival as the 8th annual Escape: Psycho Circus transforms the NOS Events Center for two monstrous nights of festive frights and spine-tingling fun. On Friday, Oct. 26 and Saturday, Oct. 27, Headliners will come together under a real-life tent full of terrors in an immersive journey through the haunting Psycho Circus.

Complete with circus amusements and nightmarish décor, each evening will come alive as fans get lost amidst sinister mazes, dance amongst creepy costumed characters, and become entranced by glow-in-the-dark environments and art installations. Two nights of monstrous beats await as the world’s top dance music artists will treat guests to genre-spanning sounds sure to satisfy all weekend.

The intricately designed Escape Asylum will return once again, transporting thousands of fans into a nightmarish maze of twisted Wonderland characters and storylines. The interactive experience transports fans through 30 distinct environments featuring more than 120 costumed performers amidst 32,000 square feet of movie-quality set designs and special effects. New for 2018, the upgraded Asylum design will feature an additional “padded room,” one of the first stops along the immersive theater experience into the Mad Hatter’s mind, designed to double the amount of attendees going through the Asylum each night while minimizing wait times.

Last year, Escape: Psycho Circus brought together a record-breaking 125,000 fans for two blood-curdling days at the NOS Events Center. More than 75 dance music tastemakers including Eric Prydz, Jamie Jones, Marshmello, Nicole Moudaber, Rezz, Tiësto, and Zedd  showcased unforgettable sets across four monstrous stages. In addition to more than than 5,000 revelers who dared to enter the Asylum, fans enjoyed the revolving carousel, contortionists, fortunetellers, and burlesque shows amidst the sinister Psycho Circus.

Tickets for Escape: Psycho Circus 2018 go on sale on Friday, July 13 at 12 p.m. PT on EscapeHalloween.com. Two-day GA prices begin at $159.95 plus taxes and VIP prices begin at $309.95 plus taxes.
