Top Five EDM Halloween Parties
For any dance music enthusiast, this week begins a pivotal time for choosing their Halloween party plans. Insomniac's Third Annual Escape From Wonderland lineup was officially released last week, which has us excited to experience another venture down the rabbit hole on Saturday October 26th. The lineup includes Caspa, Hardwell, Mat Zo, Noisia, a Pendulum DJ Set, Richie Hawtin, Steve Angello and more. It was underwhelming to some (not as much trance or mainstream artists) and perfect for others (lots of underground tech house and techno).

But like most holidays, the EDM scene likes to stretch out the Halloween festivities like nobody's business. We sifted through all the major parties to find the top five EDM Halloween parties so you can show off those epic (sometimes barely there) costumes and maybe try something different for a change.
Top Five EDM Shows in October
5. Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare
The disturbing mind of Rob Zombie plans to terrorize So Cal at the LA County Fairplex in Pomona every Friday night this month, featuring some of your favorite dubstep and bass heavy Djs and producers. This Halloween Horror Festival features three different haunted houses and mazes including a Haunted World of El Superbeasto in 3D! We suggest checking out Doctor P, Zomboy, Terravita and Evol Intent on Friday the 25th. For only $30 you get to see UK's legendary Doctor P alongside some of dub music's up and coming artist, partake in the Bloody Boulevard activities and access to all the haunted house attractions.
4. The Dada Land Compound
Dada Life is bringing their Dada Land Compound tour to San Diego thanks to LED on Friday the 25th at the Valley View Casino Center. You don't even have to arrive beautiful this time since it's Halloween theme, but you sure can expect to leave ugly (or at least very tired) after all of the pillow fights, champagne showers and banging electro beats. For a mere $45 you can also catch Grammy nominated A-Trak, Caveat, Clockwork, Craze, Jacques Lu Cont, Michael Woods and TJR. LED is known for throwing epic, ratchet, twerking inducing parties so expect to get your moneys worth. We just hope that the 4am end time also means each DJ gets longer than 30-45 minute long sets.
