Five mind blowing stages; crossover talents uniting electronica, hip-hop, dub step, trance, techno, drum & bass, and turtablism blasting through bone rattling sound systems; a plethora of performers and attractions including gogo dancer goddesses, 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 has come in its 16th year to take over the NOS Events Center (689 South "E" Street, San Bernadino) this Saturday. Insomniac’s Audiotistic features four stages this year bumping nonstop bass-thumping beats from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m indoors and outdoors. Swanking a complete 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., gracing the desert with their first appearances on a Southern California stage.
The full lineup includes: Sebastian Ingrosso, Crystal Castles, Diplo, Porter Robinson, Chris Lake, Bingo Players, Bobby Burns, Morten Breum, Flux Pavilion, Doctor P., Datsik, Benga, Plastician, Ed Rush & Optical, Flinch, Deco plus special guest DJ Fresh, Major Lazer (live), Lil B "The Based God" (live), The Cool Kids, DJ Craze, Daedelus, AC Slater, Nick Catchdubs, King Fantastic (live), Arrabmuzik, Thee Mike B plus special guest Hoodie Allen (live), "Anjunabeats," presents Super8 & Tab, Matt Zo, Jaytech, Arty, Menno de Jong, Marcel Woods plus special guest Showtek.
For those of age, there will be beer at 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—including Electric Daisy Carnival and Together As One—Insomniac draws the masses again and again, 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.
