Two weeks ago Insomniac announced the 2019 edition of Dreamstate SoCal along with the quiet revelation that the festival's San Francisco iteration would not take place. In the days leading up to when tickets go on sale, the West Coast promoter has started to reveal entries to the all-trance event's lineup.

Starting Friday the 14th, Dreamstate SoCal's organizers began announcing the 2019 headliners in daily batches. Among the more notable names thus far are Ferry Corsten, Bryan Kearney, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Gareth Emery, Ace Ventura, Vini Vici, and Sean Tyas.
