Dreamstate SoCal 2016 || Sebastian’s Introspective

Dreamstate: A word that might mean quite a lot of things to different people. Ecstasy, euphoria, an outer space journey, a trip down memory lane, being put in a state of trance. The list can go on and on. To help give you some context, I’ll try my best to explain what I think the word Dreamstate represents by reviewing’s Insomniac’s latest trance only festival: Dreamstate San Bernardino!

Dreamstate SoCal 2016 || Thomas’ Experience

Trance is by far my favorite genre of music and the diversity within the genre is truly something special. If you want to hear music that makes you feel happy, cry uncontrollably, chill out, get pumped up for a workout, or even take your mind into the twilight zone… trance can take you there. I was lucky enough to attend Dreamstate SoCal last year, and it was an unforgettable, life-changing experience for me. I had never been to a festival dedicated to trance, so the range of emotions felt that weekend, along with the amazing people I met, changed...

After an amazing debut in 2015, I had no doubt in my mind that Dreamstate SoCal was going to be an epic weekend this year. Let me just preface this review by saying that I love trance, and I had an all around amazing time at this event.

Dreamstate SoCal 2016 || Maria’s Experience

Out of all the events that I have attended, Dreamstate SoCal has touched me in ways that no other event ever has or ever will.  There is nothing more powerful and emotionally transcendent than the genre known as trance. Here in the United States, trance has been on quite the journey in becoming one of the most beloved and respected forms of music in the scene. Because of the unyielding passion that the trance family has shown, the incredible talent brought forth by both national and international DJ/producers in the last few years, and companies like Insomniac Events who truly listen...

Dreamstate SoCal 2016 || MyStro’s Introspective

Expanding from one stage to four in a single year is one heck of a growth spurt, but for the homecoming of Insomniac’s Trance brand, Dreamstate, it feels like it may be second nature. Diverse lineups over each stage, highly tuned production, and the power to envelop an experience were all on display at this year’s edition of Dreamstate SoCal. Utilizing a bigger canvas brought about the question, would Insomniac deliver? In short, yes, but not for a reason one would think. Dreamstate encapsulated that one thing so elusive in the world event market – it mobilized a global...
