Decibel 2012 by Oliver Correa
Seattle, Washington -- Decibel Festival has announced the first round programming for its eleventh annual five-day conference. The full lineup, which you can view below, was released two weeks ago, and promoters are now revealing individual events including official showcases, after-hours sets, and the Optical series, a string of concerts featuring audio/visual experiences. Here are the must-see shows at Decibel 2014.
Wednesday night will see Optical 1: Kinesthesia with sets from Max Cooper and Arca + Jesse Kanda, as well as a Resident Advisor showcase featuring Kaytranada and Lunice among others.
On Thursday, you can catch Studio 4/4 with Lee Burridge, or head over to Sky Church for Optical 2: Playful Discard featuring Oneohtrix Point Never + Nate Boyce. For some late-night raves, check out dB After-Hours event Dubscured with Recondite and Fluxion.
Friday's program will lead to some tough decisions as festivalgoers will have to choose between Hotflush with Scuba and Dense & Pika, Hardware with Simian Mobile Disco, Robert Babicz, and Luke Mandala, and Crew Love featuring Soul Clap, Wolf + Lamb, and Nick Monaco.
Saturday doesn't get any easier, as the showcases include Hot Creations with Lee Foss and Anabel Englund, Kingdom with !!! DJs, Kastle, and Sean Majors, and Richie Hawtin and Friends with Richie Hawtin, Guti, and Rone.
Only one showcase, All Gone Pete Tong, has been scheduled for Sunday thus far, but it has a killer lineup with Pete Tong, Tensnake, and Isis Graham.
Decibel Festival will take place September 24-28, and tickets for individual shows are available through the Decibel events page. If you plan on attending, check out our Decibel Festival Guide for travel and festival insights with local recommendations.
