Beyond Wonderland 2012
By Andy Cheng
If this is the next generation of music, I don’t want to live on this planet anymore (Does anyone watch Futurama?). But sincerely, if you fancy a cacophony of computer-generated, loud blurts of random bass sounds and other musical shenanigans with cryptic meanings, then this EDC-esque musical festival is for you. Located at the NOS Events Center, Beyond Wonderland has been growing since its inception in 2010, attracting thousands of fans every year. This year’s lineup will include some major hits like Armin van Buren, Steve Aoki and a handful of other artists. One aspect of Beyond, however, is admittedly pretty impressive: the aesthetics of the festival. The lights and décor that envelop the festival ground is like none I’ve ever seen and contributes a fantasy feel to the concerts.
Beyond Wonderland at NOS Events Center, 689 S. E Street, San Bernardino, (855) 235-2867; www.beyondwonderland.com. $75-$150.
