Get ready to travel deep into the most spellbinding dream you can think of as you tap into the imagination of the forest. Nocturnal is extravagant, imaginative and will have a little something extra this time around. For the first time ever, you will have the ability to set up camp for the weekend! You get to experience more of the festival with daytime fun like swimming, a water slide, Frisbee golf, fishing and other activities. That should keep you entertained until the real action starts—right when the sun goes down. Once that happens, prepare to drift through a moonlit landscape filled with mad tea parties, sunken gardens and red queens galore. Each of the six stages is themed and will have DJs, dancers and even a few fire twirlers. Theatrical performers will dazzle, suspended aerialists will fly high above you and stilt walkers will traverse the crowds. The immersive audio and visual productions will have you seeing things (even if you aren’t on drugs). We all know you’ll be up partying past 4am anyways, so don’t rush to see everything right away . . . take time to marvel at the amazing art installations and don’t forget to hop on one of the carnival rides. Not to mention, Benny Benassi, Datsik, Umek, Dash Berlin and Fatboy Slim are just a few names on the talented list of performers. Are you ready to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes?
