To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Nocturnal Wonderland, Insomniac Events has put together a comprehensive 20 minute long documentary detailing the history of raves and dance music. Featuring commentators from the uppermost corners of dance music such as 12th planet, Moby, The Crystal Method and many more.

The documentary takes viewers on a journey to the beginnings of the modern EDM scene, touching on the music, the fashion and the people who helped bring it to life.

The commentators tell the story of how dance music became the juggernaut we know today, starting with rare footage of raves from the 90s. They discuss the evolution of DJ'ing and the parties they played. 12th Planet talks about the evolution of the festival and scene over the past 20 years:

"I've been going to Nocturnals for almost twenty years. A lot of kids can have the same experience I had when I was a kid by going to a Nocturnal now. Because you're going to hear an evolved version of the same music that's been playing since 97-98."
