Monster Bash 2016
16TH ANNUAL DOS XX MONSTER BASH
San Diego’s Largest Halloween Outdoor Block Party
Saturday, October 29th, 2016
San Diego, CA – The 16th Annual Dos Equis Monster Bash presented by Sailor Jerry, San Diego’s most EPIC Halloween festival, will transform the Gaslamp Quarter and East Village into a paradise for haunted souls and fabulous freaks on Saturday, October 29th from 6:00 PM to Midnight. Spanning eight city blocks, this massive takeover boasts FIVE hauntingly crafted themed stages that have become the hallmark of this unforgettable event, hosting over 20 DJ’s and entertainment acts over the course of the night. Featuring DJ sets and live performances by trap, edm, hip hop, house, and progressive artists, San Diego Monster Bash has something for everyone! Flocking from across the globe and every US State, over 15,000 costumed revelers join together to dance unabashed into the night at this Halloween mecca of terror and sinful delight.
Tortured takes on Grimm childhood tales come alive within the sinister scene of the Scary Tales Stage. Take a bite of Snow White’s rotten apple and plunge down Alice’s hole to Wonderland for an experience that you won’t soon forget. This main stage boasts an incredible lineup of not-to-miss talent and top DJ’s and live performances.
As you dance at the Doll House Stage, don’t mind the broken toys and haunting girls with cracked faces and missing limbs. Discarded dolls take over the block to seek their revenge as you party beneath their hollow eyes.
Step into a world drained of color in the bone chilling Wicked Whitelands Stage. Disturbingly blank creatures haunt your every move and ghostly white dancers turn your heart to ice – all while your ears are treated to blood curdling beats.
You may be able to hide your face, but you can’t hide your desire at the Dos XX Masquerade where hidden glances and lustful mystery fill the air. This dark dungeon of desire and disguise is home to emerging talent and the infamous Monster Bash Costume Contest finals.
Life is “too short” to NOT go VIP! Partygoers can upgrade their supernatural encounters and gain exclusive access to the 90’s Horror House, a special hideaway for our Monster Bash VIPs. This bloody block of terror is home to your favorite iconic 90’s stars that have faced a perilous fate while old school hip hop and your favorite 90’s jams will be bumping and heads will roll. Monster Bash VIPs enjoy 6 complementary drinks, private seating, private restrooms, and more throughout the evening.
