Illuzyn and Bonsai Collective Release Lineup for ESCAPISM 2021

ESCAPISM 2021 Dallas

ESCAPISM will return to The Green Elephant in Dallas for a night of music and art featuring capshun, Avae, Colson XL, and more.


Back in 2019, LA-based collective Illuzyn took Dallas by storm with a new festival called ESCAPISM. Hosted at Green Elephant and headlined by local DJ and producer capshun, ESCAPISM became a rousing success. The 2020 edition took place just before the pandemic took hold, and after a year-long break, the show is set to return to make its grand return on July 16 for a fantastic night of music and art.

In addition to headlining ESCAPISM for the third straight year, capshun will take on another role. Back in 2018, he founded Bonsai Collective, a Dallas-based label focused on melodic music influenced by trap, jazz, hip-hop, funk, and house. Today, the collective has grown significantly and now includes Denali Records, an imprint featuring many of the artists on Bonsai’s roster. Capshun, and the rest of the Bonsai crew, will co-host this year’s event. Artists like spüke, Sasha Rome, and Colson XL are set to appear, as well as Illuzyn owner Vladimir Calise aka Avae, and more.

“We envision ESCAPISM to eventually grow into the biggest annual psychedelic music festival in the U.S. with music acts ranging from electronic, indie, rap, R&B, rock, & pop,” Vladimir Calise said. “Our dream acts include Tame Impala, Travis Scott, [and] Flying Lotus, but we’re starting out small first and spotlighting all the amazing acts in our community.”

Born and raised in Morristown, NJ, Alec’s EDM journey started back in 2014 when he saw Flume during his first tour of North America. It wasn’t until college, though, that Alec really developed a love for EDM after attending Moonrise Festival in 2018. His tastes span all genres, ranging from drum & bass to downtempo to trance. If you can’t spot Alec in the crowd, you can usually find him on the lacrosse field or whipping up something delicious in the kitchen!
