The ghouls and ghosts have vanished from festival grounds and crisp autumn air is sending us good vibes and magical beats. It’s time to gather for our annual Trancegiving family reunion, officially known as Dreamstate SoCal 2019. The 5th edition of the Trance focused SoCal event returns to NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA on November 22nd and 23rd. If you haven’t secured your ticket yet, you’re still getting over the Halloween festival hype, or you can’t wait to be back at NOS with the trance family, here are three reasons why you should start getting your excitement levels up for Dreamstate.
Look at That Lineup
The lineup for Dreamstate will get any trance fan crying. The extensive list of artists range across various subgenres of trance, including new artists to the Dreamstate scene and loved artists that have been dominating the EDM genre for years.
More well-known artists include Ferry Corsten, Bryan Kearney, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Gareth Emery, Ace Ventura, Vini Vici, and Sean Tyas. New Dreamers will be happy to hear trance tunes they may recognize from other legacy events.
This doesn’t include the incredible number of Anjunabeats artists on the list, Above & Beyond, Andrew Bayer B2B Ilian Bluestone, Gabriel & Dresden, Genix, Jason Ross, Oliver Smith, Spencer Brown, and Sunny Lax. Who else is excited to sing Sun & Moon at the top of the lungs at the Above & Beyond set?
There are a number of newer artists on the lineup, but one that would be more noticeable to those newer to the trance scene is Seven Lions and Dimibo’s debut of their psytrance project, Abraxis. While they shed light on their new sound at Electric Forest this year, this duo has yet to officially release any music directly related to the project. Whether you’re a fan of Seven Lions, Dimibo, or psytrance, this will be a set worth checking out.
Fall For the Fashion
One of the greatest parts of Dreamstate, other than groovin' to your favorite EDM genre, is flitting around the festival as a trance fairy. The Dreamstate fashion is always some of the most magical pieces of the year. As the festival is always held in November, the chilly weather encourages attendees to piece together outerwear and accessories that would usually be immediately discarded during summer fests.
Dreamstate typically takes on a whimsical and utopian luminescent theme to its adjacent fashion vibes. If you’ve ever wanted to spread your lit up wings and twirl around to uplifting tunes, Dreamstate is the perfect festival to adorn those accessories. Want to unleash your trance magic in fashion form, but don’t have the wardrobe to piece together the perfect look? iHeartRaves has got you covered.
New Year's Eve fests aren’t the only ones that encourage outerwear. Stay cozy sitting next to the NOS lake or looking fun and fierce with the various options of faux fur, sherpa, and bedazzling lit up coats and jackets on the iHeartRaves site.

Get Lost in the Vibes
Whether you’re a time traveler, spacewalker, or alien babe, Dreamstate has incredible vibes that will pull you out of your body and transport you to a higher state of consciousness. Above all else, this festival is known for welcoming crowd and magical features that make the experience unlike any other.
Trance is a great genre with fans that are incredibly loyal to the sound. You will find yourself getting down to any subgenre from hard trance and psytrance to uplifting beats. Dreamstate SoCal is still a relatively new festival as this its 5th year in production. You can be part of the beginnings of this up and coming legacy.
