We are just days away from Dreamstate San Francisco – Saturday Jan. 16 & Sunday Jan. 17.

Insomniac Events held the first annual Dreamstate in Southern California back in November at the NOS Event Center in San Bernardino. I have been going to events at NOS since 1998, and I will say Dreamstate was one for the books! Both nights featured some of the best trance DJ’s in the world, dazzling lights, insane lasers and great vibes. The party sold out in just four hours. Many trance fans were sad they couldn’t attend.  If you were one of them, you need to buy your ticket for Dreamstate San Francisco…NOW.

Here are my 5 reasons why Dreamstate SF will be even better than Dreamstate Southern California.

1. The Lineup

While the lineup for Dreamstate Southern California was STACKED, the lineup for SF is even more impressive and full of feels. Aly & Fila, Bryan Kearney, John O’Callaghan, Jordan Suckley, Paul Oakenfold, Paul Van Dyk and Simon Patterson played at Dreamstate SoCal. They will also be headed to Dreamstate SF along with Cosmic Gate, Fleming & Lawrence, Gareth Emery, Markus Schulz, Neptune Project, RAM, Sean Tyas, Solarstone and Vini Vici. I only wish Ace Ventura was on the lineup again because his set at Dreamstate SoCal was one of my favorites.

2. The Venue

Bill Graham Civic Auditorium will be hosting Dreamstate SF. This is the PERFECT venue. You’ll be able to access the lower and upper levels of the venue – or at least until the lower level hits capacity. If you need a break from dancing, you can grab a seat in the balcony for some Dreamstate and Chill. The venue in downtown San Francisco can hold 7,000 trance fans!

3. The Production

While the production for Dreamstate SoCal was insane, expect to see a lot more at Dreamstate SF! You can fit in a lot more lights, lasers and LED screens. When the lasers are turned on – they will be bouncing across Bill Graham Civic Auditorium for a sight like no other. Whether you are on the dance floor or in the balcony – you’ll have a prime viewing spot.

4. The Vibe

It’s no secret, San Francisco loves trance music. The “Trance Family” will be out in full force in San Francisco. Trance fans are all about love, good vibes and great music. Expect to see a lot of smiles, hugs and kandi exchanging.

5. The Official Insomniac After Party

There was not an official after party for Dreamstate Southern California..but there is one for Dreamstate SF! It will be held at Ruby Skye on Saturday Jan. 16th, right after Dreamstate ends. Sean Tyas will be taking over the decks along with some special guests and surprises. The best part – tickets are just $12 with your Dreamstate ticket and the party goes strong until 6am! So there is no better way to celebrate Dreamstate the first night of Dreamstate SF than with more TRANCE!
