The dates and ticket information for the 2021 edition of Escape Halloween have been unveiled. Will you be planning to attend next year?


Since first debuting back in 2011, Insomniac‘s annual Halloween festival, Escape, has become one of the most sought-after and highly-attended each year. Renowned for its immersive production and absolutely stacked lineups, every edition has seemingly leveled up from the last as Pasquale Rotella and the creative team work hard to bring experiences like The Asylum, Crazy Town, and more to life.

2020 would’ve marked the 10th Anniversary of the festival, but the COVID-19 pandemic had other plans as Escape Halloween was one of the many that were canceled due to safety concerns. Instead, they’ll be celebrating spooky season in style with a two-day Virtual Rave-A-Thon over the weekend. But tonight, Pasquale Rotella took to social media to announce its return in 2021 to the NOS Events Center on October 29-30 with Resurgent Grimm title taking place of the previous Psycho Circus moniker.
