Beyond Wonderland confirmed for 2020 iteration at the Gorge AmphitheatreHome

In his recently aired “State of Insomniac” address, Pasquale Rotella announced that Beyond Wonderland would “return to the Pacific Northwest.” Now, nine years after its 2011 iteration at Seattle’s WaMu Theater, the Insomniac-branded event will return to Washington state to record its 2020 edition at the Gorge Amphitheater.

For now, neither Rotella nor Insomniac have disclosed further details about Beyond Wonderland, such as the festival’s 2020 dates. This information is yet to come, as is a ruling on Insomniac and USC Event’s collaborative production project, Paradiso Festival.

The event, which has traditionally been held at the amphitheater each June since 2012, is the subject of ongoing litigation between both festival producers. In 2019, Insomniac filed a lawsuit against USC Events, alleging a breach of contract offense. The open nature of the case meant that Paradiso would not return as expected for its June 2020 iteration. It is possible that Beyond Wonderland could take the place of Paradiso to operate in June, but it is currently unclear if this will in fact be the case.

Following suit from previous year’s lineup reveal, the 2020 lineup was unveiled throughout a series of mixes, where listeners needed to decode the artist by listening carefully to the songs played. Rotella also announced new additions and updates to the festival, including the highly requested return of the enclosed neonGARDEN structure, in comparison to the previously open-ceiling design. He also revealed circuitGROUND’s would debut a brand new stage design, and the bassPOD would retire their current stage design after this year. The official EDC Las Vegas lineup will be revealed on February 21, 2020.

Pasquale Rotella talks EDC expansion, sustainability, skipping Nocturnal Wonderland in ‘State of Insomniac’

Pasquale Rotella talks EDC expansion, sustainability, skipping Nocturnal Wonderland in ‘State of Insomniac’Edclv 1

Pasquale Rotella took to Instagram on Tuesday evening to hold the State of Insomniac and announce major updates to the company’s festival lineup. The biggest update from the Insomniac founder is the expansion of Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas to utilize the “entire Speedway interior” for the 2020 event.

This update to the EDCLV footprint comes on the brink of Insomniac’s 25th anniversary in 2021. Rotella told followers to “expect a year-long celebration,” as Insomniac announces multiple new EDC destinations. No word if this means past EDC locations such as New York City, Chicago, and Denver will be included in the celebration.

With news breaking of Paradiso Festival being canceled as Insomniac sues USC Events for breach-of-contract, Rotella announced that Beyond Wonderland will be returning to the Pacific Northwest in 2020, almost a decade after the festival held a Seattle event in 2011.

Not all the news was good; the dance music pioneer was blunt in the possibility of 2020’s edition of Nocturnal Wonderland being canceled. With no date having yet been announced for this year’s event, Rotella advised fans he will upload an Instagram poll to allow votes on whether to “skip this’s year edition and plan for 2021 OR have it back at [Glen Helen Speedway] for our 25th year.”

Rotella reported that Insomniac’s refillable water stations at its major festivals last year served the “equivalent of just under 4MM single-use plastic waters bottles.” However, he feels this is not enough, and Insomniac has hired a sustainability manager to find new ways to reduce the company’s footprint.  Some changes under this manager include exploring solar options to power festival stages, along with the using biofuels to power generators at select shows this year. 

Check-out the full State of Insomniac update below, which also includes news about EDC Orlando, Insomanic LTD pop-ups, and more plans for their future festival lineup.

Insomniac started off 2020 strong dropping the lineup for its first major festival of the year, Beyond Wonderland, within the first ten days.

This event always comes at an interesting time as it overlaps with Ultra and, by extension, MMW every year. This can often leave the DJ bench a bit thin as so many artists take up residence in Miami for the whole week, playing multiple shows around the city even if they’re not playing at the festival itself. This year, however, Insomniac has managed to reign in a rather impressive roster of talent despite the beachside festivities occurring on the other side of the country.

2020 will also include some exciting firsts for Beyond Wonderland. Most notably, this will be the first time the event has hosted the Factory 93 experience. Beyond was the only event in Insomniac’s repertoire without a dedicated techno stage, but as the genre’s popularity only increases it was time to bring the darkness into the fold. Diplo will also be hosting a stage dedicated to his new house-only label Higher Ground. The lineup also boasts slated performances from Tiësto, Alison Wonderland, Dillon Francis, k?d, Andrew Beyer, Good Times Ahead, and many more.

Beyond Wonderland 2020 is set to take place on March 20 and 21 at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, California. See the full lineup below:

House meets trap in new Night Owl Radio episode featuring Dr. Fresch and ATLiensAtliens Live In Honolulu

Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella has proven yet again that his ability to curate diverse top-notch electronic music acts is unmatched. Insomniac’s Night Owl Radio is back and better than ever with a brand new episode featuring The Prescription Records labelhead Dr. Fresch and masked extraterrestrials ATLiens.

First up is the man with a PhD in house music: Dr. Fresch. Dr. Fresch gets in the groove and selects this episode’s Up All Night tracks for the first hour and 15 minutes followed by an exclusive guest mix from trap and bass duo ATLiens. Hot off the success off their recent hit “Shelter” and massive remix album, Ghost Planet Remixes, these two hold nothing back in 40 minutes of head-banging bass.

If listeners enjoy the juxtaposition of house and trap created in this mix and want to see it again, this mix provides that opportunity. As the end of a decade quickly approaches, Dr. Fresch and ATLiens both have New Year’s Eve festival gigs locked and loaded at Countdown NYE Festival in San Bernardino, California.
