Insomniac has announced the return of the world’s premier trance music event, Dreamstate, to Southern California’s NOS Events Center Friday, Nov. 23 and Saturday, Nov. 24.
For two nights, the genre’s most globally acclaimed producers will transport Headliners to all areas of the trance music spectrum, enhanced by Insomniac’s unmistakable production and forward-thinking designs on three curated stages.
Since the festival’s first installation in 2015, the brand has showcased trance music across six cities and four countries while expanding to host stages nationally and internationally at the largest dance events including EDC Las Vegas and Beyond Wonderland.
Legendary acts like John O’Callaghan, Markus Schulz, Paul van Dyk, and Simon Patterson will take over the NOS Events Center to create the soundtrack celebrating the best in trance music, while LASERFACE by Gareth Emery and Sander van Doorn presents Purple Haze bring the best in notable trance side projects.
In 2017, over 35,000 trance fans were brought together at the timeless event surrounded by the top trance artists in the world. Unforgettable moments included the West Coast premiere of AEON presented by Paul van Dyk, two unique sets from Armin van Buuren – bringing his alias GAIA to California for the first time, Jodan Suckley‘s worldwide premiere of 3FECT, and Iboga Records & FMBooking’s audiovisual Hologram Show.
