Aside from a stacked musical lineup, there were many attractions to add to the ghoulish atmosphere. The haunted maze asylum made its exclusive premiere as attendees were thrown into an interactive experience of 15 rooms. There was also a virtual reality experience which helped take headliners into live performances throughout the event and back in time to previous Insomniac events such as EDC Las Vegas. The Psycho Circus hosted acts ranging from burlesque night shows, tightrope walkers, and fortunetellers. An assortment of deranged characters were deployed by Insomniac to really bring out the beautiful horrors of this event.
