    That's one of the reasons I'm trying to temper expectations about this year. Previously the largest venue was ~700 people. That's where the top acts like Carl Craig/Modeselektor/Monolake/Flylo/Pantha du Prince played. This year they're adding The Paramount Theater (capacity 2,200 seated) and Showbox Market (capacity 1,100) and have stated they expect to sell many more tickets than previous editions. Bigger venues + higher ticket price + selling more tickets = .... bigger names, but how much bigger? And considering dB's reputation for booking progressive/innovative acts, this makes me really, really excited.

    Yeah it sucks being a young'n. I feel like such a dumbass when my fav djs come to town and I can't even go... or get turned away at the door.

    If they scan Ids at the door, I'll have to pass on this event... if they are just looking and letting people in, then I may be making my first trip to Seattle!

    It probably depends on the venue. I wouldn't say all events are going to be 21+, Seattle has a very high number of all ages shows (compared to what I am use to). A fake may work - I can't recall ever getting my ID scanned while at a show here but I haven't been to too many venues. Jeff would be the best to answer this.

    Decibel mentioned on their Facebook page that they're working with most of the venues to make the shows 16+ or 18+.

    Let me find that post...

    Edit: Here we go.

    The Paramount, Showbox, Triple Door, Norstrom Recital and Fred Wildlife Refuge will be all-ages and we're in discussion with other venues about coming on board as 16+ or 18+!

    interesting. thanks for posting.

    Neumos being 21+ might be a bust for some of you. Also, this isn't the full list of venues, is it? I don't see any of the smaller afterparty joints on here...

    Not too surprising. The smaller clubs/bars aren't set up for underage gigs. The main attractions are clearly shifting to the bigger spaces anyway, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. The after hours gigs started at 2am which is past last call. I know Mi Casa Es Su Casa was 18+ but the other one might have been 21+?

    MORE VENUES TO BE ANNOUNCED
    This was right under the list of venues so I'm guessing a few more will be announced with the first wave of artist announcements.

    More venues likely means:
    Motor - in SoDo, houses after-hours
    Seattle Center - park under Space Needle for dB in the Park
    Chop Suey - another smaller club on Capitol Hill that dB throws shows at year 'round (potentially replaced by the Crocodile???)

    Via the Facebook:

    Decibel Festival
    [dB11 artist update] Beginning May 16th Decibel will be releasing an artist a day via Facebook, Twitter and the festival website. This campaign will continue until August 1st, at which time the 2011 Decibel Festival program will be announced in its entirety. Discounted dB Passes are on sale now through June 15th at https://bookr.net/
    Even dB isn't immune to the single worst announcement method festivals utilize. Sure it's great that we're getting names, but this method is really annoying. Not to mention it's unlikely it'll be anyone to get too excited about for some time. Glass half full: It forces one to consider every act a bit more by isolating them.

    Looks like if I want to go to this it's just going to be a leap of faith.

    The state of festival marketing in 2011 is fucking awful.

    It would be really easy to sell the ticket in Aug./Sept. if you decide not to come up. Especially considering the steep discount pre sale offers.

    As is the case with most events, this is true. I shall think about it.
