Insomniac’s newest trance only event Dreamstate sold out in only four hours! TranceFamily from all over the US and other countries will be traveling to Southern California to take over the NOS Events Center’s Damus Building on November 27th and 28th to hear 20 of the top trance artists including trance legends Paul van Dyk and Paul Oakenfold along with newer artists like Adam Ellis and Jordan Suckley.

“Our Basscon and Bassrush brands have been the epicenters for all forms of hard dance and bass music. It’s time that we brought that same level of quality, creativity, and inspiration to the trance community. Dreamstate will be completely dedicated to celebrating trance in all of its forms. Trance fans are some of the most passionate in electronic music, and I hope that Dreamstate will provide them with a promising new destination.”  – Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac

Many of us have heard many times over the years that “Trance is Dead”. Whether or not trance ever really died, with the quick sell out of Insomniac’s first trance only event it appears that trance may be once again back on the rise.

Not all trance fans were expecting such a quick sell out and there were many people who didn’t secure tickets to the Dreamstate’s inaugural event. Some of them interpreted Insomniac’s social media posts to mean than there would be a second release of presale tickets.


But Pasquale Rotella, Insomniac’s Founder and CEO, set the record straight that there would be no more tickets available for Dreamstate.


What did Insomniac mean by “If you didn’t get a ticket, have no fear — additional Dreamstate plans are already in the works.” If there won’t be any more tickets available for the San Bernardino show, does that mean that other Dreamstate events are in the planning stages for 2016? Guess we’ll all have to wait and see!
