The underground scene will be represented throughout the festival at the new Factory 93 stage – a stage curated by Insomniac’s underground brand – where old-school and deep warehouse vibes meet new-school sounds.. In the past, Insomniac put together several stand-alone warehouse events in the Los Angeles area, but its going to be the first time when the underground experience is brought to the major festival.
Last year, Escape Psycho Circus brought over 90,000 costumed ravers together for a festive weekend of sinister sights and spine-tingling sounds. Guests will once again be immersed in a cauldron of ghoulish adventures, nightmarish décor, circus amusements, creepy costumed characters, interactive art installations, and an unrivaled musical journey across four massive stages – Slaughterhouse, Ghouls’ Graveyard, The Chopping Block, and Cannibal’s Tea Party.
