Even though late afternoon storm clouds threatened from all sides, the sun was shining down on the beautiful Headliners at the 8th Beyond Wonderland SoCal. Day One saw a marriage proposal onstage during Black Tiger Sex Machine, a vibe-heavy tech house set from Fisher, 45 minutes of trap laid down by Tiësto, and a killer remix of Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love,” cued up by Catz ‘N Dogz. But as always, the most memorable moments came courtesy of YOU, our colorful and creative Headliners. Below are just a few of the awesome people we met at Beyond Wonderland SoCal 2018.
