DJ/producer Aaron Jackson will be representing the PNW at Insomniac Events’ Nocturnal Wonderland festival, which takes place September 5th -6th. The two-day event, which has been running since the mid-90s, will take place at the San Manuel Amphitheater & Grounds in San Bernardino, Calif. Jackson announced via his Facebook that he will join the likes of The Glitch Mob, Mat Zo, Martin Garrix, Delta Heavy, Audien, and more than 60 other artists at the event.
The Eugene, Oregon-native’s sound is a stylish sampling of bass house and UK garage and lends itself to the dance floor. Like a vacation to a house-music oasis from the generic sounds we’re used to, his sets always seem to end too soon. There is a clear focus on the energy and flow of his mixes and tracks, although his attention to detail stands out most of all. For a better understanding, check out Jackson’s SoundCloud, which features several mixes, remixes, and original tunes.
Jackson’s set at the 19th annual Nocturnal Wonderland follows his appearance at Konnexion Music Festival in Heyburn, Idaho, which took place August 15th – 17th. He’ll also be opening for AC Slater at The Whisky Bar in Portland on August 23rd.
General admission tickets to the 18+ age restricted Nocturnal Wonderland are priced at $149 (plus service fees), with VIP tickets available to those who are 21 and older starting at $279.
