Headliners, start getting your costumes ready ‘cause the excitement levels are ready to hit new levels with regards to Escape: Psycho Circus! North America's Largest Halloween Music Festival by Insomniac is returning to haunt you this season on October 27 and 28, at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA.

Returning to SoCal on Halloween weekend, Escape: Psycho Circus just dropped a stacked lineup and is set to host more than 75 monstrous artists for a twisted two-night affair. Going out all guns blazing for the 7th annual Halloween haunt, Escape: Psycho Circus ‘17 will see performances by the likes of Tiësto, Eric Prydz, DJ Snake, Zedd, Flosstradamus, Marshmello, and many more.

Following last year’s massive turnout, Ghouls’ Graveyard is set to expand with a larger footprint and lineup for every bass lover out there with its Bassrush Massive takeover. Another two well celebrated Insomniac brands, the hard-dance-centric Basscon and the genre-blending Audiotistic, are set to host the Chopping Block on each night. Factory 93, the undoubtedly dedicated underground brand, once again will be curating Cannibals’ Tea Party, alongside its highly anticipated collaborations with Jamie Jones and his celebrated Paradise, and Nicole Moudaber, who’s bringing her surreal MoodZONE experience to the stage.

Perfectly explained in a nutshell, “Enter the realm of the Psycho Circus, where dance music’s most wicked artists take over unique and enhanced stage designs, as intricately dressed ghouls and goblins and interactive art installations rattle all your senses.” As a part of these ‘otherworldly experiences’, Psycho Circus will be packed with nightly interactive activities and performers, including fortune tellers, burlesque shows, tarot card readers, and tightrope walkers.

Across the ghostly lagoon, the nightmarish Asylum a highlight of past years, will be set once again terrify guests who dare to make the journey through a menacing 3,200-square-foot maze, which features 30 distinct rooms and 120 costumed characters creeping and lurking around every corner. As part of the eerie experience, fans are strapped into strait jackets and made to put on masks upon entry and what follows can only be left to imagination with the petrified screams that are supposedly heard from even way outside the towering gates.

Packed with nightmarish experiences and two nights FULL of frights, Escape: Psycho Circus is definitely not for the faint hearted. But then again with a lineup like that would there really be a better place to bring in the Halloween weekend? Let us answer that for you, probably not!
