Insomniac Events held their first festival in years in the Pacific Northwest last weekend at the Gorge Amphitheater. Beyond Wonderland Pacific Northwest had many people excited since it was first announced in 2020, and although it was unfortunately postponed due to COVID, the whole weekend felt like a giant celebration after waiting so long.
Beyond Wonderland Pacific Northwest was a two day festival that happened between October 1st-2nd with a pre-party that happened in the venue on September 30th for people that were camping. Although the weather is usually cold and windy this time of the year, it was very mild all weekend. Since it was a little chilly at night people prepared and brought their A-game with their night time outfits.
There were three stages at Beyond Wonderland Pacific Northwest: Fractal Valley, Cheshire Woods, and Caterpillar’s Garden. Fractal Valley overlooked the beautiful Gorge, and people watching sets from the pit and the hill could enjoy the stunning view while also enjoying their favorite sets. Some artists that played there were The Chainsmokers, Said the Sky, Tiesto, Joyryde, Benny Benassi, and Rezz. Caterpillar’s Garden had a lot of house artists such as Green Velvet, Sidepiece, Wax Motif, and Malaa. And lastly, Cheshire Woods had a lot of bass artists such as G Jones, Virtual Riot, Kayzo, Sullivan King, and Svdden Death. My personal favorites from the night were Benny Benassi, Sidepiece, Said the Sky, and Claptone.
There were a lot of things besides the music at the venue as well. To go along with the Alice in Wonderland theme, there were a ton of art installations. There were inflatable mushrooms everywhere, a giant art installation of a rabbit, tea pots and cups, the whole venue had turned into a raver theme park. There was also a ferris wheel, which gave you an amazing view of the whole festival, and a spinning ride for those thrill seekers. Many vendors had their booths there, so if you wanted to buy last-minute festival accessories to complete your look, you had many options. There were a lot of different choices for food as well, such as ice cream, noodles, poutine, and chicken tenders.
