    Default Beyond Wonderland Bay Area

    For the past three years, you have journeyed with us down the rabbit hole to explore a place where imagination becomes reality. With open hearts and minds, Southern California has embraced Beyond Wonderland.

    We have heard the calls from our fans in Northern California and now begins the next chapter in the Beyond Wonderland saga. We invite you along with us to the Bay Area as we bring Alice to a new world full of big adventures. On Saturday September 29, you will explore three outdoor areas of music, state-of-the-art production and design, interactive art installations and more at the Grounds at the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum Complex.

    Tickets on sale Tuesday, August 14th

    Performance information will be released soon. Journey with us beyond the walls of Wonderland.

    Watch the Beyond Wonderland Bay Area Traler

    Grounds at the Oakland Alameda County Coliseum Complex
    7000 Coliseum Way Oakland, CA
    This event is 18+

    I shudder to think at how pathetically sparse a techno stage at an inaugural Insomniac event at the motherfucking Oakland Coliseum would be.

    Who, Umek? The typical roundhouse of techno artists Insomniac now steadily books? There's solid techno being spun by SF locals constantly. It's not as if Insomniac is finally bestowing some sort of underrepresented techno abyss upon the Bay Area.

    All I know is, I like insomniac lineups, I will probably like their lineup, and I enjoy dancing, so I will be there. I have way more fun at festivals than club shows

    Maybe I'll go to this as a Rave Ambassador. A lot of my really awful tasted friends are probably going to want to.

    No shit? Thanks for that nugget, Nick. No one would have ever speculated that they'd be drawing from the talent already at Decibel without you confirming that it's a speculative possibility.

    I'm going no matter what and going to fist pump and have plurgasms on all the music snobs. An Insomniac event in the bay area sounds like a good time. STFU to whatever snarky response comes next.

    Since they say "3 outdoor areas" I am guessing this is in the lot like lovefest?

    Not an ideal venue, but whatever. At least it's not Shoreline. I will be buying a ticket.

    What club shows are you attending in SF? Carl Craig and Octave One (Live) are at Public Works that same night. Better venue, better crowd, better techno.

    This sounds fun but not as fun as an Insomniac event. Massive stages = better venue, ravers = better crowd, and you don't know that it's necessarily better techno.

    Yes. The parking lot of the Oakland Coliseum is a far better venue than clubs built specifically with the sound quality of electronic music in mind.

    the side of I-880 on a desolate tarmac does seem a bit unimaginative

    Yeah, a parking lot with bigass speakers, expensive lighting, and themed decorations

    A concrete NASCAR racetrack in the middle of the desert seems pretty unimaginative too. Oh wait, they built stuff on it and it transformed into one of the most amazing places ever.

    What? The polo grounds most certainly do have the appeal of being a scenically wonderful place to experience music. A parking lot on the side of one of the ugliest freeways in known existence does not.
