There are few avenues left for Insomniac to influence in the electronic dance music landscape, but the team at Basscon is ensuring that hard dance is represented—and represented well.

Last weekend, Basscon took over San Bernardino's NOS Events Center for their annual Wasteland music festival, a celebration of all things hardstyle. Wasteland featured a massive lineup of global hard dance artists, such as Sub Zero Project, Da Tweekaz, Lady Faith and more.

From its production to its logistics, Wasteland 2022 was a major success for Insomniac. This year, organizers debuted a revamped stage design with towering LED walls and lasers galore, among other stage elements that offered no shortage of visual stimulation. was on the ground throughout the festival to capture all the most memorable moments.
