Set times are officially out for Escape Psycho Circus, going down this Friday and Saturday at NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA. It’s always a joyous occasion whenever set times are released as headliners can revel in the joy of all the amazing music they’re about to witness. However, it can also be a time of sorrow when you see the time conflicts and all the acts you won’t be able to see. Nonetheless, the show must go on. We’re here to help you navigate the two days of Halloween-themed madness that is the Psycho Circus.
This year’s edition of the festival will feature a completely new layout and new stage designs. Gone are the Slaughterhouse, Ghoul’s Graveyard, Chopping Block, and Cannibal’s Tea Party. In are the Grimm, Psycho Circus, Sanitarium and Sewer District. There’s also a new central hub of the festival called Crazy Town. I am beyond excited to see what Insomniac has in store for us for this year’s edition of Escape.
Back to the set times. The Grimm will be hosting all of the heavy hitters over the weekend. Dillon Francis, Timmy Trumpet and Duke Dumont highlight Night 1 with deadmau5 closing things out. Night 2 highlights include Don Diablo, RL Grime and Alok, with Alesso closing out the weekend. The second stage is the Psycho Circus, Bassrush will be holding it down on Night 1 with a stacked lineup including Bear Grillz, Borgore, ATLiens, and the one and only Excision closing out the night. There’s no shortage of firepower on Saturday night with highlights including Chris Lake, a very special Gorgon City b2b Nora En Pure set, and the legendary Eric Prydz closing the night out with a 2 hour set. The Sanitarium stage will host hardstyle on Night 1 and will be the Audiotistic stage on Night 2. If this was soccer, this would be the group of death right here; San Holo, Valentino Khan, What So Not, Boombox Cartel and more. Sewer District is highlighted by a special 3-hour Dubfire b2b Nicole Moudaber b2b Paco Osuna set. Sunday will feature a closing set from deadmau5’s Testpilot alias.
