Vital Events started in 2010 at the University of California Santa Cruz where they were throwing small parties for their friends. Each party grew more and more eventually forcing Vital to move to The Catalyst in Santa Cruz where they hosted the first Wobbleland. Trying to move more events into the city, Vital hosted their first Toxic Summer at DNA Lounge in San Francisco. After a few years of throwing events at smaller venues, Vital moved to City National Civic in San Jose which became home for Wobbleland, Toxic Summer and Soulstice.
