What better way to celebrate a spooky Halloween than to see all your favorite DJs in one spot with a twist of Halloween vibes to really get you excited for the oh so anticipated holiday? That’s right, Escape Psycho Circus gave us the weekend of a lifetime for the sixth year in a row. With stages titled Slaughterhouse, Ghouls Graveyard, Chopping Block, and Cannibal’s Tea Party, you’re immediately lured in to the Psycho Circus madness. Anyone would be lucky to continue to attend this event for years and years to come.

NOS Events Center was the most perfect location for this event, as you immediately walked in to see plenty of art installations that you wouldn’t find anywhere else, including a carousel and a giant pink Pac-Man, who was gliding around the event with people just dying to get a photo.

There were perfect photo-ops, like in the picture below, along with perfectly construed characters on stilts decked out for a nightmarish Halloween feel.

Something that you wouldn’t be able to find at any other rave was a maze that had me contemplating having my next drink. (Heads up, you might wet yourself.) This first-ever maze included a realistic set up of 15 blood-curdling interactive scenes with costumed actors ready to scare your pants off.

If you’re wondering just how incredible the music was, wonder no further. If you check out the playlist below, you can listen to some of the live performances from dance music’s most unreal and historical artists from each and every stage.

If you live under a rock, you need to move! No, but really, if you do, I got you. Be sure to re-watch this year’s trailer for Escape, and try not to get too sad that you missed it! 

If you did miss it, quickly get your tickets for Dreamstate 2016 on Nov. 25th & 26th, or even check out Countdown to ring in the New Year on Dec. 30th and 31st!
