Venue - Oak Canyon Ranch

Oak Canyon Ranch is a park in the hills of Orange County. The park is located next to a lake and is surrounded by hills. The venue is also host to several other festivals such as Lightning in a Bottle, 420 Festival, Juju Beats, and Pacific OC Festival. The location is something different and a favorite of the FestivalZOO staff.
There will be two stages that are both open air; Party For The People Stage and Freedom Of The Future Stage. There is parking onsite but the road to the park is only one lane and will most likely be backed up so arriving early is strongly recommended.

The lineup includes some exciting house artists as well as some from the electro and trance genres. For the house fans we recommend checking out Alex Kenji, Funkagenda, and Nic Fanciulli. Marcus Schossow is one of the latest DJ stars coming from Sweden. Matt Darey and Paul Oakenfold are two pioneers in electronic music and it will be interesting to see if they still have the magic.
