This weekend, Insomniac Events hosted their second annual Escape from Wonderland music festival at the Nos Events Center in San Bernadino. The Wonderland parties have become a staple brand for the promoters and are becoming just as popular as Electric Daisy Carnival (their biggest event of the year). Built on a foundation of Alice and Wonderland themed performers and décor, Escape from Wonderland brought out the spooky side of this magical world we've come to love. We break down the night with the top five best and worst of our dark decent into this massive EDM event.

5. Too Many People

After announcing it's cancellation on Friday night, the Go Ventures Monster Massive crowd must have attracted even more dance music fans and ravers because Escape officially sold out the next morning. Interestingly enough, unlike at Nocturnal Wonderland where there was plenty of dancing room, Escape was completely packed. Traffic jams to get to the venue, un-plur cab drivers charging up the ass for lifts and stages so crammed you couldn't even see the DJs reminded us of EDC and made us nauseous as everyone was rampaging around the venue.

4. Annoying E-Tards

Like with any event that draws in big crowds the amount of everything multiplies and that includes the dark side of the old "rave" scene and hundreds of people on drugs rolling their faces off. With all of the high quality production elements that go into creating these parties - from the lights, mazes, art installations and theatrical performers we wish more people came to experience these without being over stimulated and on something illegal. The show and festival itself is just as, if not funner when you can actually remember everything.
