Celebrating its 20th anniversary is an amazing feeling," said Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac. "For this three-day experience, we're going to produce an event that pushes our creative boundaries, and also gives love to Nocturnal's SoCal roots with a lineup that includes classic artists that helped shape the early dance scene."
Fans can celebrate the end of summer with Nocturnal's festival soundtrack, which includes:
Adam Beyer Presents Drumcode
Armin van Buuren
Booka Shade (Live)

And much more to be announced.
Last year, Nocturnal Wonderland brought more than 55,000 passionate fans together for an incredible two-day journey. Over the past two decades, Nocturnal has captivated more than 600,000 festivalgoers with its enchanted wonderland of world-class music and unparalleled production. Insomniac will once again bring its signature over-the-top visual elements including interactive art installations, mind-blowing pyrotechnic displays and creative stage designs to life, making it the premiere Labor Day weekend event.
Fans are once again invited to join the Nocturnal camping community for up to four nights, sleeping under the beautiful night sky.

Brand new to 2015, the Nocturnal campgrounds will expand to offer turnkey camping options, special amenities, and more entertainment than ever before. Further details on expanded camping options will be revealed in the coming months.
