The countdown to Beyond Wonderland 2019 has begun! Prepare to take a trip down the rabbit hole into a world of psychedelic insanity and trippy beats. This year’s lineup has our heads SPINNING - stacked with so much dimension and diversity, it is a force to be reckoned with. Here is everything you need to know about the who, what, when, where, and why on five sets you CANNOT miss:
Who: Aly & Fila
Where: Caterpillar’s Garden
Why: This dynamic duo is notorious for giving their trance tracks an Egyptian flare. Having known each other since kindergarten, they also host an Internet radio show, Future Sound of Egypt. Aly & Fila produce uplifting beats that sound great through headphones and even greater live! If you’re looking to discover new music and move to the groove all night, then this is a set you definitely cannot miss.
Who: Rezz (Space Mom)
What: : Techno
Where: Queen’s Domain
Why: From the most minimal techno to intricate experimental beats, Rezz has mastered it all. Rezz is a badass both on and off stage, and her heavy sets are definitely a reflection. The last time I saw Rezz, she actually reached her hand to the crowd and grabbed my soul… or at least it felt like it. Seriously though, if you’re into jaw-dropping sets that leave you in a warped yet content awe, then be sure to score a good spot for Rezz’s set.
Who: Ganja White Night
Where: Mad Hatter’s Castle
Why: Ganja White Night brings such originality to their “Bass Wobbling” sounds. Influenced by dubstep, they have successfully avoided the cliches of the genre and focus on integrating bass with melodic lines. Both members of the duo are self-taught DJ’s and have rightfully earned respect in the industry.
What: Future Bass
Where: Mad Hatter’s Castle
Why: This Canadian instrumentalist and producer is by far my top set for the weekend! Ekali never fails to deliver a dynamic and original performance at every festival. He shows his fans a lot of love on Twitter and genuinely cares about their input. Whether you are headbanging on the rail, vibing in the crowd, or dancing in the back, Ekali’s set will be engaging from start to finish.
The white rabbit just told us that you are NOT too late for this very important date! If you don’t have them yet, tickets to Beyond Wonderland 2019 are still available. Grab your single or two-day tickets here, as well as parking, VIP, and shuttle options.
Halloween is fast approaching, and we all know the best part of this holiday is choosing the ultimate costumes! As ravers, we are no strangers to dressing up, and Halloween is an awesome time to show off our style skills. There are so many directions you can go in when deciding what to be for Halloween, so we’re giving you some suggestions to make your decision a little easier.
Out Of This World
Extraterrestrial themes are huge in the rave world, and Halloween is the best excuse to dress up as a sexy alien or a house-loving astronaut. There are also a ton of opportunities for couples and group costumes that fit this theme! Build an alien squad with your friends in the Cosmic Chaos Alien Costume and the Solstice Kiss Holo Set, or explore the unknown in matching astronaut suits. Add some glitter, and you will surely have an out-of-this-world Halloween experience!
Embrace Your Wild Side
Feeling wild this spooky season? Cowgirl costumes are super cute and perfect for any Halloween event. Embrace your wild side and let loose with a cowboy hat and your best chaps, or make it glam!
Certain costumes will never go out of style. Classic costumes come back every year because they are timeless. If you’re feeling scary this Halloween, try a holographic skeleton or a seductive devil costume. If you’re going for a flirtier vibe, you can never go wrong with the Team Techno Cheerleader outfit. This fit is a fun take on the basic cheerleader costume! You can make any of the classics your own with glitter, accessories, and other modern twists.
Have a legendary Halloween dressed as your favorite mythical creature! Fairies, elves and unicorns are not only charming characters, but they are also very trendy right now. These Fractal Fantasy Fairy Wings will transform any outfit into an enchanting fairy ensemble. You could also pair this Rainbow Unicorn Costume with some sparkly fishnets for a dazzling festival look!
Ravers love to dress up year-round. But if there's one thing that we don't get to do often, it's bring the spooky vibes with scary costumes around Halloween! This time of year is the perfect time to show off your spooky side, with costumes that are gory, creepy, or all around terrifying.
No matter what you decide to be this year, you can’t go wrong. As long as you’re feeling like your best self, you’re going to slay this Halloween!
