Summer’s ending soon, y’all. It’s true. We certainly won’t be the first to remind you; your coworkers will soon be needing some other pointless crap to talk about while their TV shows get written for the fall.
But before you ditch your wookie-tribal dress in favor of business attire- (the proverbial kimono in favor of the suit, if you will), take heart! Because partying indoors is pretty fun too.
Especially when the premier musicians, visualists, entrepreneurs, and venue owners of your city band together to put together something… different. Something unique (and true) to the progressive environment it was born, and then raised in. A music and arts festival just as engrossing as the lysergic summer blowouts that have captured the imaginations of the modern world’s neon-clad youth, but with substantially less mud:
Enter Decibal Festival - the Detroit born, Seattle-based all out brain dump of electronic art’s best and brightest, curated into showcases for your enjoyment by a staff that has previously brought forth the likes of Diplo, The Glitch Mob, Flying Lotus, Four Tet, James Blake, Bonobo, Baths, Tipper, TOKiMONSTA, Tycho, Star Slinger, DJ Krush, Ladytron, Geographer, Deadmau5, Amon Tobin, Justice, and hooooly s*** you get the point.
And the music’s just the start, kiddos. A whole series of optical exhibitions will be hosted by the EMP Museum. , in addition to a full daytime conference schedule including a synthesizer petting zoo, talks and workshops from leading industry professionals, and a not-to-miss mass-mixing session sponsored by Abelton and Splice.
Long story short: It’s a future party. There’ll be ideas, technology, art, cannabis sponsors, bangin’ beats, boat parties, after parties, and solid time all around.
Plus, be on the lookout for a curated schedule presented by Empty Planet. And be sure to say ‘what’s goody’ to our crew + sponsors + friends at the show!
