Down the rabbit hole

Beyond Wonderland music festival offers weekend of psychedelic revelry

For those who missed Burning Man this year or for burners having trouble returning to the real world here's another chance to lose yourself in a heaving mass of bodies, music, large-scale art and all-day, all-night revelry. Drop down the rabbit hole for a day or two at Beyond Wonderland, where dance music meets light shows, pyrotechnics, psychedelic art, costume-clad performers and more. The action is spread across three stages, but there's just as much action offstage, where costumed festivalgoers interact with LED-charged sculptures and with one another. This year's line-up of international electronic artists includes Calvin Harris, Kidnap Kid, Arty and Laidback Luke offering up trance, house, ambient and more. VIP ticket holders have access to private cabanas and bottle service, but you don't need those special perks to make Beyond Wonderland a weekend to remember. Oh, and you can forget the rental RV and the sand goggles; Mountain View's a a bit more hospitable than Black Rock Desert.

Where: Shoreline Amphitheatre, 1 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View

When: Sept. 26-27

Cost: General admission tickets start at $115 for one day, $199 for two days.
