The biggest trance festival in North America, Dreamstate SoCal, has announced that it will be returning for another round in 2021. Will you be there?


Since first landing in Southern California back in 2015, Insomniac’s flagship trance festival Dreamstate SoCal has won over the hearts of Trance Family members near and far. Affectionately known as “Trancegiving” due to its proximity to Thanksgiving weekend, each edition has pulled out all the stops with amazing production elements and a wide variety of styles from jam-packed lineups.

Due to the ongoing pandemic this year, the usual edition of Dreamstate SoCal was forced to be postponed with Insomniac instead opting to transform it into a multi-day Park N Rave experience with the safety of headliners in mind. But have no fear, Trance Family members, because today they’ve announced that the festival is set to make a triumphant return to the NOS Events Center for another roaring edition on November 19-20, 2021.
