Event Preview: Dreamstate San Francisco
Have you heard of Dreamstate? Chances are that if you are trance music fan, you have. The infant, yet popular division of Insomniac was introduced in 2015, and has been gaining momentum ever since! From the popularity of the festival in Southern California, to the stage at EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival) 2016, to the upcoming couple of days during Memorial Day weekend. All 3 days of EDC 2017 are even slated to include a dedicated stage.
Dreamstate has become a symbolic yet necessary event for the trance scene. The claims that trance has been making a comeback or returning or any other related semantics has fueled this. However, for all of the fans and artists that have never abandoned the scene to begin with, these events show the power of trance as a music genre.
The best part about the line-up of artists is the diversity of sub-genres and skill levels by all involved. For instance, Markus Schulz is bringing back his alias Dakota, Paul Oakenfold is bringing back Generations, PureNRG (Giseppe Ottaviani & Solarstone) will be bringing a back-to-back set, and many are anticipating Liquid Ace (Liquid Soul & Ace Ventura back-to-back).
