At every Insomniac festival, a group of as many as 350 compassionate and proactive people works together to provide a unique and exceptional service for our Headliners. They lend a helping hand, friendly face and peace of mind to anyone in need. They offer support in any situation without judgment and with only your best interests in mind. They are Ground Control, and they are your best friends.
Easily recognizable and always approachable, they welcome each and every Headliner through the festival gates, and strive to ensure that every guest leaves with a smile and a longing for the next event. Founded in March 2011, the Ground Control community interacts with thousands of Headliners who also seek to protect and promote a healthy, positive festival lifestyle. These spirited ambassadors return to our events year after year, bringing positivity, good will and cheer to Insomniac shows.

Life comes at you fast, and sometimes you or a friend might have questions about sensitive topics involving drugs, sex or just need to rest and talk to someone for a minute. We've brought together a team of people trained in providing accurate, unbiased information - or just provide a listening ear if you're having a tough time! Insomniac partners with the Drug Policy Alliance's #SaferPartying campaign and Healthy Nightlife to make Project #OpenTalk possible, and while it's not at every event, you can usually find it in the Ground Control Oasis with the people wearing light blue shirts. We want you to be educated and safe!Learn More
