Following a period of fast growth, the festival was expanded to two days in 2012 and three days in 2015. Around 2017, the festival began to appear in multiple cities, including Milwaukee, Wis.; Brooklyn, N.Y.; Detroit, Mich.; and Houston, Texas, in conjunction with the EDM events organizer Disco Donnie Presents. The first Houston festival, which was held at the Sam Houston Race Park, proved to be such an enormous success that it became one of the premier events of the Halloween weekend.
