The 2021 Nocturnal Wonderland has been announced. Nocturnal Wonderland, the electronic dance music festival that has been raging hard since 1995, will be back next year after it was canceled in 2020 following the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Making the official announcement, Pasquale Rotella, founder and creator of music and experience company Insomniac, took to Twitter and wrote, "WE’RE BACK! With everything that’s been going on in the world, we believe the best move for @NocturnalWLand 2021 is to return to the place that we all know. The place where we’ve created so many life-changing memories together: Glen Helen."


The announcement was also made on Instagram where Rotella expanded, "I’m SO excited to be back & can’t wait for you to explore the new experience we have in store! Logistics for the campgrounds will be improved for 2021. I’ve read the concerns regarding last year and plans are in place to ensure a smooth & enjoyable Camp Nocturnal experience. Limited Presale passes go on sale this Thursday at 12pm PT, including a very limited amount of camping passes that will go quickly—but don’t stress! We will be adding more camping passes at a later date. THE ENERGY AWAITS. Sept. 18 & 19, 2021"

Set to take place on September 18-19, the two-day experience will mark Nocturnal Wonderland's 25th edition in existence. Pre-sale tickets and camping passes will go on sale Thursday, September 17. More tickets and camping passes will be available at a later date. The official site for the festival, like recent years is "SoCal", at the Glen Helen Regional Park in Southern California

Reacting to the news, an excited fan of the festival tweeted, "I can’t wait to rage it up in nocturnal wonderland again next year camping is a must," while another wished, "Nocturnal Wonderland will forever be the most memorable to me because I met Pasquale & it was my first camping experience. I can’t wait to do it all again in 2021."



Reminiscing the times spent at previous editions of the festival, another enthused fan tweeted, "Do you guys understand how AMAZING this venue is? How amazing Nocturnal Wonderland is? I get to see Camp Og again, go to the water park (hopefully), silent disco, wake up by the lake, camp with my fam, and experience the one weekend that was taken away this year. IM HYPED," while another eager Twitter user added, "Nocturnal always has the best vibes other raves not so much I always had the best memories At Nocturnal Wonderland always gonna be my favorite rave to attend to."



Held each year in Glen Helen Regional Park in San Bernardino, California, Nocturnal Wonderland is a two-day event that features various performances across different sub-genres of electronic music like trance, drum and bass, breakbeat, and house. The festival has six different stages–The Labyrinth, Alice's House, The Upside Downroom, The Sunken Garden, The Queen's Grounds and The Big Top Tent–each playing different styles of music and featuring various activities.
