Paul Oakenfold, Gareth Emery to headline Insomniac’s Dreamstate in SF
Event production company Insomniac has many expressions, ranging from its premier dance music festival, Electric Daisy Carnival to the hippy-trippy festival, Electric Forest. Next month, the west coast event producer is reviving an old-school movement with its trance series debut. Dreamstate, America’s first trance-only festival, will debut in Southern California next month, with a second edition to take place in San Francisco in January.
SoCal’s Dreamstate sold out in a record-breaking four hours, with the San Francisco leg slated to follow suit. Featuring legendary talent like Paul Oakenfold, Gareth Emery, Markus Schulz, and Cosmic Gate, Dreamstate marks just the beginning of trance’s resurgence back into mainstream electronic music culture.
