Over the years, Nocturnal Wonderland has been a staple to the Southern California scene. As North America’s longest running festival, Nocturnal holds a special place in the hearts of many. With Nocturnal Wonderland 2019 being the final run at Glen Helen Regional Park, the last rave to ever be thrown at the venue; we thought it would be only appropriate to look back at all the amazing memories made.
The first Nocturnal Wonderland was held in 1995, and saw many different locations before bouncing back and forth a few times between National Orange Show Events Center and Glen Helen starting in 2002 and has remained at Glen Helen for the past 7 years.
Discover the history behind Nocturnal Wonderland in this mini documentary:
As you read on, listen to mixes and live sets by artists performing at Nocturnal Wonderland 2019.
Nocturnal sees upwards of 60,000 attendees every year, we get to dance around a black-lit playground featuring all you need to get lost in: the music, the performers, the art installations, live art, and a full experience in camping; paired with performances from over 60 artists.
As fans wander from set to set, each stage they come across is handcrafted to adhere to the vibe it blasts.
Whether Nocturnal returns to NOS Center, or gets a whole new home, we’re excited to see what the future holds! We will never forget the amazing nights spent dancing the night away in the hills of Glen Helen. We can only hope that camping remains an option!
