Insomniac’s Beyond Wonderland SoCal Brought An Estimated $15.5 Million To San Bernardino County In 2015

In just 3 days, San Bernardino County will welcome the 6th annual Beyond Wonderland, SoCal! One of several of Insomniac‘s events hosted in the area, a recent economic impact report commissioned by Insomniac reflects an incredible revenue for 2015. According to the report conducted by Beacon Economics, LLC, the 2-day festival produced an economic impact of $15.5 million for San Bernardino County last year.

70,000 people attended 2015’s Beyond Wonderland, SoCal, with 90% of attendees coming from outside San Bernardino County. The economic report indicates an estimated $3.5 million was spent on accommodations alone. Another $4.2 million was approximated for food and beverage, and about $1.3 million on transportation. And from a tax perspective, the festival generated a good $1.7 million in taxes for the state and local government.

Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac, had to show appreciation for the incredible community of festival goers who ultimately are the reason it all keeps going. “Beyond Wonderland’s economic boost wouldn’t be possible without the support of our amazing fans who come from out of town and stay to explore all of the wonderful landmarks San Bernardino has to offer,” he said.


2016’s Beyond Wonderland, Souther California will be hosted at San Manuel Amphitheater & Grounds on Friday, March 18th & Saturday, March 19th.

East coast origin, West coast lifestyle… Growing up I was always surrounded by the sounds of dance music in New York and Florida. However, it wasn’t until college that I was introduced to the rave scene and finally experienced the love and positivity this community is all about. I’m into warehouse undergrounds and massives like Ultra Miami, TomorrowWorld, Nocturnal Wonderland, Hard Day of the Dead, and Buku Music & Art Festival… In addition to EDM, my playlists usually have a lot of Hip-Hop, Top 40 and I’m a huge sucker for throwbacks. Hit me up if you’re attending an event in the Hollywood/LA area, as I’m always open to making new friends!
