For the last seven years deep in the heart of San Bernardino, CA the air surrounding the NOS Event Theater has been filled with screams of joy and terror. The reason would be the annual Escape: Psycho Circus Festival, a music festival that combines the nightmare of haunted houses and mazes with some of the top DJs of the world. This year’s festivities are coming up next week on October 27th & 28th. So get ready for one of the craziest events around with iHorror as we will be on the ground floor of this year’s festival covering all the fun and terror.
The two day nightmare fueled festival will be held at the NOS Event Center in San Bernardino California offering performances from some of the best DJs, interactive 3D art installations, and circus amusements. Featuring over 75+ musical acts on four stages with different themes.These four stages will be featuring some of the biggest and best names in the EDM world including Marshmello, Boys Noize (live), Afrojack, Zedd, Tiesto, DJ Snake, and so many more. Burlesque dancers, tarot card readers, tight-rope walkers, and contortionists will be performing in big top tents, while Needle Nurses, Wicked Witches, and Evil Clowns roam the grounds to ensure a scary good time. The highlight for horror fans is the ASYLUM!
Escape’s 32,000 square-foot Asylum returns with 120 actors, 30 distinct rooms, and 25 sound systems. Each guest will be admitted into the ward at the physician’s request, where they’re dressed in a straight jacket and set aside in a padded holding cell. Nurses will escort each patient to the medication window where they’ll be fed their necessary pills and begin their journey through the Mad Hatter’s twisted mind. The Asylum is Insomniac’s premier immersive theater experience equipped with movie-quality set designs, 360-degree special effects, and a fully-built facade featuring search lights, guard stations, towering gates, and steel walls. Each of the 30 terrifying environments brings a scene from Escape back to life from the Tea Party Room where the Wonderland characters first murder Alice, to the gruesome Blood Shower where Alice feeds her thirsty fiends.
This event, hosted by Insomniac, is one of the largest and top reviewed Halloween EDM festivals in the world. Blurring the lines between nightmares and fantasy, ESCAPE: PSYCHO CIRCUS is sure to please the EDM loving horror fan. Tickets are going fast, but a few are still available for next weekend’s main event! Join us and The Ringmaster next weekend as we check out what ESCAPE has to offer!
