After dropping the major announcement that Escape Psycho Circus 2019 will hosting the largest megastructure in Insomniac history, the team is back to deliver the official set times and layout for this year's festivities. Escape will return to NOS Events Center in San Bernardino this weekend, October 25th-26th, and is set to be the craziest edition yet. With just a few days away, it's time to start planning your trip.

This year will feature a brand new arrangement. As is tradition with Escape festivals, everywhere you look will have you gawking in disbelief as the event center is transformed into a twisted fever dream of a circus. 

The production of Insomniac festivals is second to none. Along with the addition of the new mega stage The Grimm will be three other new stages: Psycho Circus, Sanitarium and Sewer District. While you are on a break from the music, enter into the new festival center, Crazy Town. Though with a lineup as stacked as this one, headliners are bound to be racing from stage to stage to catch their favorite artists in time.
