    I only went to one event last year, it was to see Tycho and I plan on seeing a lot more this year. At first glance, I am interested in Spacetime Continuum and Daedelus.

    Here's an article about the db fest from Resident Advisor:

    Seattle's Decibel Festival have announced the initial line-up for their sixth annual event, which will take place in late September.

    The festival, which goes under the full title of the Decibel International Festival of Electronic Music, Visual Art and New Media, is a non-profit four-day event which aims to showcase innovations in the electronic side of both visual and musical art. As with contemporaries like Canada's Mutek, the festival will see electronic music performances backed up with workshops and panel discussions, and it seems like the organisers have gone all out this year to try and further establish Decibel on the international circuit.

    Only a snapshot of the full line-up has been released, but it seems like there'll be a wide range of acts on offer, from the cerebral minimal techno of Monolake, through to the jacking maximalism of Alter Ego. Dubstep will get more of a representation this year, although even within that sphere there are a diverse selection of artists, with the electronica-tinged sounds of Boxcutter coming face-to-face with Martyn's deepness, and Caspa and Benga's more full-throttle style. And speaking of full-throttle, Andrew Weatherall will fly over to play an undoubtedly dance floor focused set, whilst Move D, Bruno Pronsato, Alex Under, Tadeo and the Wighnomy Brothers will provide US audiences with an insight into current European house and techno sounds.

    There'll also be plenty of American artists laying down performances, of course, with Daedelus, Voodeux, Lusine, Nosaj Thing, Pezzner, Mountains and KiloWatts all set to appear. Organisers have also decided to factor the current economic climate with their ticketing procedure, and are offering a limited number of discounted passes up until July 24th.

    I'm liking the looks of this. Not sure about a four day pass though. Does anyone know how much single day passes were last year? For was it per show/venue?

    Yeah, they are per show per venue. Looking at the flier from last year it says:

    Weekend Pass: $100
    All Access Pass: $175
    Deluxe Pass: $125
    Individual Showcase Tickets: $10-25 (twenty showcases total)

    Last year we paid $15 to see Tycho at the Baltic Room.

    Basically this year they are selling the All Access Pass for $100, which is tempting.

    However, there are conflicts, with multiple events occurring on the same evening, so single passes might be the best bet.

    I kind of assumed that's what was happening, multiple venues running simultaniously. Individual showcase tickets it is!

    looked up a few of those acts.. hit or miss.

    anyone going to this fshould certainly check out Nosaj Thing. his appearance makes me think Eliot Lipp will also show up and either partner with leo for a DARKPARTY set or a Lipp Service set...either way it'll be off the charts

    lippservice at rothbury



    they'll be at ********* too

    Christina Vantzou of Dead Texan (BE) (Dead Texan is fantastic! Too bad both couldn't be there)
    Nosaj Thing (US)

    nosaj thing doesnt have anything to do with eliot lipp. Hence no reason to talk about him here.

    Is it just me or are they lacking headliners this year? I know there are artists still to be announced, but last year had quite a few obvious headliners and this year not so much.

    Also, I'm waiting until they release the who/where/when before I get excited over anything. Especially considering on the opening night Kid Koala is playing an unrelated show in Seattle for $10 and Deadmau5 (one of the headliners from last year) is playing a $20 show on Oct 3rd.

    However, I really want to see Daedelus again. I saw him last winter here and it was a great time, from the dance floor you could see it snowing outside

    Friggin Martyn! He's never been to Seattle before so I'm super stoked to see him. Caspa will be a real treat also.

    Mary Ann Hobbs too?! My bass-sense is ahsploding!

    Oh man, Boxcutter too! Love his acid dubstep. Would love to see Daedalus too!


    I went to Deadmau5 last year just after his Essential Mix dropped and the place was packed.

    If you miss OPTICAL 1... you will have missed the best show of the weekend.

    I would also strongly recommend the Cascone lecture.

    I can't make Optical 1. My wife takes the GRE on Saturday and I barely got her to agree to go out tonight, so Friday night is definitely out of the question. She likes Daedelous, which will be her post-test celebration show on Saturday night.

    So the Ghostly International show was quite good last night. It was held in the lower lobby and conference hall of the Seattle Art Museum. We were able to catch a partial live set by the Sight Below (sounded pretty cool and had very good dream like visuals), a partial set by Clark Warner (good music for the lobby meet and greet), a full set by Tycho (awesome as always. he had new visuals, a couple new songs, which were very good and he also brought out the members of Dusty Brown, whom I'd never seen before), one song by Michna (Tycho's set ran into Michna's, but the song I heard was very good) and a partial set by Lusine (pretty good, but we had to leave to get over to the Kid Koala show).

    I got the Ghostly Show poster and can't wait til Saturday's Bass Lover's show.
