Insomniac, Escape Main Stage

Escape from this Bewitched Circus is Impossible

Halloween has inspired people around the world throughout the ages. Escape is the largest Halloween electronic dance music festival in Southern California and is the most sinister festival in the entire Insomniac series. The NOS Event Centre in San Bernardino was transformed into a Halloween Walhalla for more than 40,000 guests in late October 2014.
The Leisure Expert Group, with its large team of Halloween specialists, was invited to supply the main stage for Escape by Insomniac.

“We had the honour of working on the main stage design for the largest Halloween EDM festival in Southern California by Insomniac. Escape from this bewitched circus was impossible.”

THE FINAL RESULT

A unique theatrical stage was created, where dance music and performances merged. It was accompanied by hallucinatory video content on large screens, produced by the Leisure Expert Group and partners.
An enormous clown face, with a DJ booth placed inside its terrifying mouth, formed the base of the main stage. The booth was literally wrapped in the clown’s tongue. The clown was framed by the Theatre of the Damned and a gigantic circus trailer on wheels.
