The 27th run of Insomniac Events‘ Nocturnal Wonderland was everything we expected, and more.
Another year has come and gone, seemingly; in the blink of an eye. Three days of camping, amazing music, and all the good vibes just doesn’t seem like enough when the weekend is coming to its end and you’re just not quite ready to leave all your friends and the blissful environment to go back to normal civilization.
Camp went off with amazing sets all weekend between the pre-party, silent disco after parties, and Camp OG; the party just kept going!
Friday held the pre-party at the Boombox Art Car with sets from Joyryde, JS2 (from Camp OG), Kristin Lush (also from Camp OG), and more; while Camp OG saw sets from Wonderbread, Q-45, Nifty Nubez, Ultra, Mister J, and more.

Saturday started at Camp OG with daytime sets from Trevor Britt, JustTodd, Wiseman, Peter-B, No Vacancy, Ivanjahn, Aphter, Fiend, & Sean Perry. They picked right back up with top notch after party sets from JS2, Apx-1, Tank Dubz, & Dial a Freak. While the silent disco down by the lake held sets from Andrew Lux, Saymyname, Tisoki, & Kendoll.
Saturday night inside the festival was exhilarating, it felt so good to be back at Glen Helen for another Nocturnal, and it seemed like everyone felt the same too. The Rave Cave stage was a little hidden gem with an unreleased lineup the went off all weekend. We stopped by for a guaranteed-to-be killer set by the legend himself, Bunny (From Rabbit in the Moon). Wolves’ Den was home to amplified sets from Jack Beats & Taiki Nulight Present: Reel Mood, Dr. Fresch, Illenium, Moksi, Yellow Claw and many more. Labyrinth was taken over by the Bassrush experience all weekend, hosting the sounds of Blvk Jvck, Must Die! B2B Tisoki, Sullivan King, Liquid Stranger and more on Saturday. While Sunken Garden grooved out to sets from Mason Maynard, Eats Everything, Armand Van Helden, Lee Foss and more.

Sunday’s daytime sets at Camp OG were vibey with beats from Dyl Pickles, Mark I, Oscar Desilva, Tom Carle, Canady, Cyrus, Frank R, Randy J, and Sean Perry. The after party was just as hot all night long with sets from Moe, Hi-Fi, Kristin Lush, Cool Hand Luke, Blakemore, and a techno set from Nifty Nubez. The dancefloor was packed with campers until the very last song! The silent disco was grooving to the sounds of Kaleena Zanders, Matroda, Thee-o, and Wenzday.
If you have attended Nocturnal before, you may have heard a Nocturnal veteran say “Last day is the best day”, and this holds to be true! Sunday was a vibe! With sets from Boombox Cartel, Dillon Francis, R3hab, and Rezz along with others, on the main stage (Wolves’ Den); Bass icons Andy C, Doctor P, and Nightstalker taking over Labyrinth along with heavy bass sets from Peekaboo, and hyped final closing set from Ganja White Night; while Insomniac Records took over Sunken Garden and served up sensational sets from Max Low, Volac, CID, Matroda and a slew of others to ring the final day in with a bang!
