Beyond Wonderland

Posted March 18, 2010 in

With the recent release of Tim Burton’s latest mutation of the childhood favorite, it seems everyone’s jumping on the Alice in Wonderland tip. So leave it to the folks at Insomniac—this is the promoter outfit behind the Electric Daisy Carnival, How Sweet It Is and Together As One dance bashes—to sample the creative mushroom (sorry, Caterpillar) and bust out with Beyond Wonderland, an ecstatic riff off the Lewis Carroll classic featuring 60+ DJs and performers. The four themed areas are sick—Madhatter’s Castle, Queen’s Domain, Caterpillar’s Garden and Chess Village—and the talent is simply beyond pupil dilation. Trance and DJ legends Paul Van Dyk and Christopher Lawrence will be keeping arms raised high with Groove Armada and drum-n-bass/rock hybrid act Pendulum providing more than their fair share of BPMs. Then to make this an even longer, stranger trip, large-scale art and sculpture installations will be part of the landscape (a la Coachella). Forget the blue and red pills and focus on which side of the mushroom this party will take you to.

Beyond Wonderland at the NOS Events Center, 689 South “E” St., San Bernardino, (909) 888-6788; Sat, March 20. 7PM-4AM. Tickets start at $65, VIP at $125.
