As 2020 approaches, Insomniac is wasting no time in regards to Dreamstate announcements. The team behind the festival is giving fans plenty of time to plan out their attendance for Dreamstate SoCal 2020 by announcing the official dates just weeks after the conclusion of the 2019 edition. Dreamers can mark off November 20th and 21st as the return to the NOS Events Center for the epic trance gathering. 

The sixth edition announcement is coming months earlier than it has historically debuted. In the past, the dates have been announced at the beginning of the summer. This early notice could mean Insomniac is planning on making this next year bigger than ever before. One thing is for sure: Trance fans are devoted attendees. Hotels are already selling out around the area during the aforementioned dates.  

2020 will follow an impressive 2019 lineup including Above & Beyond, Ferry Corsten, Giuseppe Ottaviani's Live 2.0 show, Gareth Emery, Vini Vici and more. Due to the success of the brand's flagship festival in San Bernadino, California back in 2015, they have now expanded the brand over multiple regions. Trance lovers can now experience the phenomenon in San Francisco, Melbourne, London, Mexico City, and New York.
