Five mind-blowing stages; crossover talents uniting electronica, hip-hop, dub step, trance, techno, drum & bass, and turntablism blasting through bone-rattling sound systems; a plethora of performers and attractions, including go-go dancers, staggering state-of-the art light shows, and colorful, stupefying carnival rides; and beautiful kandy-clad people furiously dancing the night away. That is the decadence that is Audiotistic, which celebrates its 16th year at the National Orange Show Events Center (689 South E Street, San Bernardino) this Saturday, July 30.
Insomniac’s Audiotistic features four stages, and this year they’ll be bumping nonstop bass-thumping beats from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. both indoors and outdoors. With a lineup of over 35 artists with unrivaled ultramodern audiovisual technology, the event brings together the likes of Sebastian Ingrosso (Swedish House Mafia), fresh from headlining at EDC in Las Vegas, Bobby Burns, making his debut U.S. performance, and Flux Pavilion and Doctor P, for their first appearances on a Southern California stage.
The full lineup includes: Ingrosso, Crystal Castles, Diplo, Porter Robinson, Chris Lake, Bingo Players, Burns, Morten Breum, Flux Pavilion, Doctor P, Datsik, Benga, Plastician, Ed Rush & Optical, Flinch, Deco, DJ Fresh, Major Lazer, Lil B “The Based God”, The Cool Kids, DJ Craze, Daedelus, AC Slater, Nick Catchdubs, King Fantastic, Arrabmuzik, Thee Mike B, Hoodie Allen, Super8 & Tab, Matt Zo, Jaytech, Arty, Menno de Jong, Marcel Woods, and Showtek.
For those of age, there will be beer and wine served at bars throughout the grounds, in addition to scattered food and beverage stands. Also provided are ATMs, merchandise booths where official refillable Insomniac water bottles may be purchased, and a general store for things that may have been forgotten (or confiscated).
Recognized as one of the unsurpassed party throwers — organizers are the folks responsible for the Electric Daisy Carnival and Together As One — Insomniac is sure to draw the masses, as they’re known for never failing to please nocturnal music junkies. This year’s Audiotistic is sure to be another unforgettable experience for all the senses with some of the newest sounds in the music scene, and truly extraordinary, and bizarre sights.
