The week of Nocturnal Wonderland is finally here. This heavy hitter Insomniac Events festival gathers all the night owls and creatures together for one wild journey down the rabbit hole. This year Nocturnal Wonderland delivered one of the most diverse festival lineups all season. With that being, said choices are going to have to be made. Lucky for you, we are here to help guide you down that hole. Here are some of our recommendations for artists that should not be overlooked (in no particular order.)


There is no denying it, that both SLANDER and NGHTMRE are forever changing the bass and trap game in dance music. When one of them takes the stage its a party, but get all three together on one stage and then its GAME OVER! This set is promising to be one of the best sets all weekend long because they are bringing The Atom stage for the first time ever to Nocturnal Wonderland. Prepare your necks now, because once the first drop hits you probably won't feel your face for the rest of the night.

2.) Illenium

Illenium has been taking the world by storm. Illenials have become loyal fans that will travel to any city and show no matter the distance to support him and his music. Recently, Illenium has started to open up more and more about his past making his sets feel more intimate and meaningful than ever before. Nocturnal Wonderland also teased fans on their Instagram story by posting a video advertising a brand new show that Illenium will be delivering and debuting at Nocturnal Wonderland. The name is called ALIVE 2.0 and the video gives us chills. 

3.) Jai Wolf

Here Are the Best Spotify Wrapped Memes of 2022

Let's laugh away all the tracking we let this giant tech company get away with this year.

Jai Wolf has been dominating it this year. He is just about to wrap up his summer tour, started a new web series called "Chasing Places," ODESZA brought him out as a surprise guest during their special Red Rocks performance and his latest track "Lost" feat. Chelsea Jade was number two on iTunes Electronic chart. There is not stopping Jai Wolf and his sets always bring the crowd together for a feel-good time. 

4.) Nora En Pure

Nora En Pure has quickly become the queen of deep house music in a matter of minutes. Her "Late Summer" tour is making a pit stop at Nocturnal Wonderland and the Wonderland creatures will be in for a treat. There has yet to be a city Nora En Pure has not dominated while on this tour and its a fact that she is probably to date one of the best producers in the game right now. Her music easily delivers an untold story from start to finish. 

5.) Slushii

Slushii got added to the Nocturnal Wonderland lineup as a surprise about a month ago. Slushii always delivers one hell of a show to his fans and audience with colorful and whimsical visuals. He just recently came out with a new remix to the song of Charlie Puth's 'The Way I Am." So, it is without question that new music will be played during his set at Nocturnal Wonderland. 

Truly, everyone on the whole lineup for Nocturnal Wonderland is worth seeing and a lot of stage hopping will probably have to be executed, but it will be worth it. Camping for the festival is 100 percent sold out. However, tickets to the actual event are not. There is still time to purchase your tickets but make sure to act quickly to avoid higher fees and before the event sells out because it will. Soon enough we all will be falling down the rabbit hole to Wonderland together.
