It is one of the world’s biggest festivals dedicated to the dreamy, floaty, tech-y form of trance music—and after six years of serving the National Orange Show Event Center in the Inland Empire, Dreamstate is moving toward the water for their first outing here in Long Beach.
After successful festivals in San Francisco, Mexico City, London, Melbourne, and New York, Dreamstate will be taking over the grounds surrounding the Queen Mary across two days, Nov. 17 and 18.
Expected to take in over 25,000 people each day, party-goers will bear witness to trance masters like Armin van Buuren, Vini Vici, Gareth Emery, Ferry Corsten, Infected Mushroom, and more on top of a slew of special projects: Special projects like Paul Van Dyk’s Solikien, Orjan Nilsen and Mark Sixma’s Nilsix, Talla 2XLC’s RRAW!, and KEY4050. (This is also along with progressive house acts like Lane 8, Yotto, and more, which have long been a part of what is almost entirely a trance festival).
The reason for the move? The need for more space—and, more importantly for the hardcore partiers, an exclusive after-party aboard the starboard-and-port-side wrap around deck on the Queen Mary’s bow that goes past the festival’s 1AM end time.
Add on top of the fact that festival goers can book rooms directly with the Queen Mary, remaining in walking distance and safety while bouncing around, and it is clear as to why event organizer Insomniac moved the festival here.
Two-day GA passes start at $160, while VIP passes are available for $270. For more information over to the click here.
