Nocturnal Wonderland 2023 Preview

| August 14, 2023

Nocturnal Wonderland – America’s longest-standing rave – returns to its beloved Glen Helen Regional Park in Southern California on September 16+17, 2023, promising another weekend of camping and dance music for its 28th year. Similarly to previous iterations, the lineup features a range of house and bass music artists, followed by a second collection of silent disco performers within the campgrounds. The 2023 lineup is filled with popular returning artists, as well as some new faces set to establish themselves within the 30-year history of Insomniac Events.

Nocturnal Wonderland 2023 PreviewThe house portion of the schedule impresses with a wide scope of tech house, bass house, Latin house, and electro house artists such as Dombresky, Claude Vonstroke, AC Slater, Joshwa, Black V Neck, VNSSA, Valentino Khan, Biscits, San Pacho, Joel Corry, and Blossom.

Nocturnal Wonderland 2023 PreviewThe bass music lineup is stacked with coveted melodic dubstep, riddim, trap, space bass, and brostep names including Subtronics, Alison Wonderland, Seven Lions, Yookie, PhaseOne, Eptic, Champagne Drip, Bear Grillz, Riot Ten, Level Up, Wooli, Black Tiger Sex Machine, Gem & Tauri, Dack Janiels, Gryffin, and Jason Ross.

This year’s event also includes a few exciting outliers expected to fill their sets with DnB or dance music classics, including Pendulum, Dimension, Skellytyn, and a sunset set by Benny Benassi.

Last but certainly not least, a variety of established and never-before-seen back-to-back sets are scheduled to take place, providing some of the most intriguing performances of the weekend. Notable back-to-back sets include GHOST RYDR (JOYRYDE b2b Ghastly), Dab the Sky (Dabin b2b Said the Sky), Getter b2b Space Laces, Frosttop b2b RemK, Dennis Ferrer b2b Honeyluv, Shiba San b2b Solardo, Nitti b2b Marten Hørger, and more. 

Nocturnal Wonderland 2023 PreviewSince Nocturnal Wonderland’s main event consists of only three stages, attendees are even more likely to experience all of their desired sets and fewer schedule conflicts than other festivals of similar prestige. This small difference allows ticket holders the opportunity to make the most of their weekend and decreases the amount of tough decisions necessary. 

In addition to the spectacular lineup, the sold-out campgrounds include more performances and activities that create an immersive experience around-the-clock. Some fan-favorites within camp include the silent disco, yoga classes, water park, arts & crafts, and more.

Nocturnal Wonderland 2023 PreviewNocturnal Wonderland continues to be a treasured festival among dance music fans, decades after its inception into the Insomniac catalog. The 2023 event is projected to boast a stacked lineup, plethora of activities, gorgeous environment, and massive headliner turnout congruent to previous years.
