History and Facts

Insomniac, The organisation team behind Beyond Wonderland, released the following section when discussing the origin of Beyond Wonderland.

"Insomniac had been producing Nocturnal since 1993. We’ve thrown Nocturnal Festival for years, and prior to that Insomniac invested close to a decade of love into Nocturnal Wonderland. We now feel that it’s time to push forward, journeying past the boundaries, and see what lies on the other side of Nocturnal Festival’s darkness. We will embark on an adventure to the far side of the forest, exploring what exists beyond.

Nocturnal Festival and Beyond Wonderland have been conceived as sister festivals, nights that share a special lineage and common ancestry, and contain many of the same truths in their design. Beyond Wonderland will evolve along fresh paths, incorporating novel motifs and growing an exciting new environment that is sure to enliven, stimulate the senses and delight all of those who have been seeking a return to the amazing hues and vibrance of our original Wonderland event.

Over the years many of us have missed the wondrous aspect that the original Nocturnal captured so well and Insomniac has received a number of requests to “bring back” the old Wonderland event. Rather than resurrect the past, Insomniac will push into the future, innovating and creating a completely new concept that will indeed transport us to wonderland and far beyond".
