Day Trip Festival will return to the Queen Mary Waterfront in Long Beach for another house-fueled weekend on June 24-25.
The past few summers have been hotter than ever in Southern California, and that’s due in part to the rise of Day Trip. This house-driven brand under the Insomniac umbrella has gifted the scene with a plethora of curated shows all season long at Academy LA in the past, but when they launched their very own festival, it really kicked things up a notch. Last year saw Day Trip Festival find a new home at the Queen Mary Waterfront in Long Beach, and now the festival is set to return for another round on June 24-25.
While this multi-day event made some waves with its latest edition, this year will see Day Trip Festival kick everything up a notch. This includes modifications to the venue so that attendees can have a comfortable experience with added shade structures and dance floor space, and enhanced VIP offerings with a new elevated deck and more. An official after-party will also take place on the rooftop deck of the Queen Mary. Additionally, parking woes will be no more as an arrangement with the City of Long Beach has been made to allow for pre-paid spaces to guarantee your spot for a more seamless process.
Not only will the festival grounds be expanded to incorporate areas aboard the Queen Mary itself – but those who are looking for a complete experience can stay on board as well. After three years of being closed, the famed ocean liner will be reopened for overnight hotel stays during the festival for those who opt-in for the weekend travel packages that include accommodations, tickets, access to pre and after-parties, and in-and-out privileges all weekend. Check out the package options via Vibee.
