And that's a wrap! We've experienced the final round of Nocturnal Wonderland at the Glen Helen Amphitheater. We appreciate all the years we fell into this mystical and magical gathering. We got to lose ourselves to the music and find ourselves with the rest of our Insomniac family. Nocturnal Wonderland's festival goers explored the glowing night sky at the campsite and at the festival. One of Insomniac's longest lasting raves has now come to a close with a grand exit of 80,000 Insomniacs who partied all day and danced all night to some of the best acts in dance music. Shout out to Insomniac Events for creating a once in a life time experience of joy and self venture to each and every headliner. Here were our top highlights of this magnificent weekend. 


1. Labyrinth Stage

Although house music is in right, Deadbeats nor Bassrush stayed quiet. Zed's Dead's label Deadbeats took over the Labyrinth stage the first day. Bassrush took the spotlight the second day with an insane production and an even more astounding artist line up! This blew the bass community away with its heavy bass acts like G Jones, Zeds Dead, Gentlemans Club, Peekaboo, Subtronics, Zomboy, Eprom and more! Bassheads from all around the country came together to celebrate the wubz, dubs, and aggressive bass beats at one of Nocturnal's main stages! Deadbeats and Bassrush, you were nothing to take lightly and we absolutely loved this!


2. Silent Disco

If you enjoyed the mystical camp grounds with your fellow Nocturnal family, then you partied all night long at Nocturnal Wonderland's unique Silent Disco activity! Lucky enough we got to witness amazing acts like Kendoll, Dustycloud, Gentleman's Club, Lektrique, Qlank, Kyle Walker, Blossom and more. We stayed up all night to the sounds of these amazing artists with an epic experience of dancing with all our Insomniac family after the party. When at camp, the party didn’t stop! We were mesmerized by the enchanting lights that lead up to this wonderland! We will miss you Glen Helen.

3. Parliament Art Car

This special installation made it's way from Vegas to Glen Helen hosted by your favorite LA Crew, Space Yacht! This unique stage taken from past EDCs to the West Coast. This small gesture turned into a main stage with Space Yacht veterans with the acts of Rad Cat, Nitti Gritti, Yakz (special guests Svdden Death & Somnium Sound), JSTJR, and more! We had the time of our lives venturing this intimate experience with all of our best friends and our upcoming artists spreading the love and good vibes of ecstatic music. We hope to see this beautiful installation at our next Insomniac festival!

4. Reystar Art Installation

If you attended this years Nocturnal Wonderland, you probably witnessed the amazing Reystar installation. This was most likely your destination to meet your fellow rave family at this stellar location. The Reystar installation was a relaxing place to get away from all the wildness to take a breather and look up at the Reystar. We hope to see this again next year!


 5. The Experience

Although this is the last Nocturnal Wonderland experience as we know it at the Glen Helen Amphitheater, as Pasquale Rotella stated during his AMA on Reddit, Nocturnal is in full send for next year and camping is a must to be held at a different location. Fans loved the art instillations, the performers, and the magnificent stages.
