Insomniac reveals 2024 dates, location for inaugural Beyond Wonderland Chicago

Insomniac Events today revealed the dates and venue for the debut of Beyond Wonderland in Chicago.

The new-to-Chicago festival will be held June 1 and 2, 2024 at Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island.

Beyond Wonderland tickets will go on sale at 12 noon CT this Fri., Nov. 10. All ticket types can be secured with a $9.99 deposit.

The 18+ festival will be produced in cooperation with Chicago-based promoter Auris Presents, who also hosts Arc Music Festival and a number of club shows throughout the year. Beyond Wonderland is assumed to be replacing Auris’s Heat Wave Music Festival, which is typically held around the same dates.

Insomniac has not had a significant presence in the Chicago area since it held the first and only Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) Chicago in 2013.

Beyond Wonderland is also held annually in Southern California and in the Pacific Northwest.
