While it still may be only the beginning of August, Halloween is creeping up faster than you think. And as soon as the season of scares rears its demented head, that means it’s time to return to our annual Headliner haunt, Escape: Psycho Circus. Today, we are pulling back the veil to reveal the monster-size lineup we have conjured for the hair-raising, synapse-twisting, two-night affair.
The roster is crawling with all kinds of killer talent, with appearances locked in from heavy-hitters like Eric Prydz, Diplo, Martin Garrix, Tchami x Malaa, GTA, Kayzo, Seven Lions, and many more. How much more? Well, the Bassrush crew will be pulling double duty both days, as they wreak havoc at Ghouls’ Graveyard with a team of terror stretching from the realms of dubstep and riddim to trap and drum & bass.
Also tapping into the reaches of your wildest nightmares are Basscon and Audiotistic, who will be trading posts as the hosts for the Chopping Block. The former will be dishing out the most diabolical hard dance, while the latter is slated to slaughter with its cutting-edge curation. Factory 93 is taking a larger stride this year, the underground stage expanding its footprint after last year’s slammed turnout. They’re returning to Cannibals’ Tea Party for a double dose of dank house and techno, roping in Jamie Jones’ Paradise and Green Velvet’s La La Land brands for stage takeovers.
As is always the case, music isn’t the only element that makes Escape a freakishly good time. Factor in the demented Asylum maze, sinister performance troupes, and an energy that will keep you up all night, and you’ll never want to spend your Halloween any other way.
Escape: Psycho Circus 2018 takes place Friday, October 26, and Saturday, October 27, at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA. Tickets are on sale now. For more information, visit the official website.
