Escape: Psycho Circus’s Lineup is scarily good

During the 2019 edition of Escape: Psycho Circus, the supernatural spirit of Halloween will come alive as more than 65 of the world’s most acclaimed dance music artists set the soundtrack for the two-night Halloween festival on Friday, Oct. 25 and Saturday, Oct. 26.

This year, powerhouse Insomniac brands Audiotistic, Basscon, Bassrush Massive and Factory 93 will host stage takeovers, as Escape looks to build on its credibility as one of the most artfully curated festivals in the world. Since 2016, Escape’s Factory 93 Experience has been laying the groundwork for today’s house and techno renaissance, welcoming performances from many of the most veteran figureheads in the underground dance music community while propelling others to new stardom. Continuing its unwavering commitment to forward-thinking music and culture, Factory 93 will present the powerhouse trio of Dubfire, Nicole Moudaber and Paco Osuna as they stun with an epic 3-hour b3b in California for the first time—while Chris Liebing b2b Charlotte de Witte will also debut on the West Coast.
