June 14, 2012 — Roughly three months from now, more than 30,000 people will be flocking to Seattle, Wash., to experience four jam-packed days of electronic music, art, new media, and education. The festival, known as Decibel, will kick off its ninth year September 26 to 30. Decibel has been said to be the electronic version of Austin’s South by Southwest festival, featuring headliners Kimbra, Carl Craig, Ariel Pink, and Baths, to name a few. Spread out over 14 Seattle venues, the creators are bringing over 170 artists and 72 educational speakers.
Decibel was created with the goal of mixing electronic music and visual art into a unified performance medium. While doing so, the creators also aim to put together a program geared towards encompassing the past, present, and future. To do this, they must push the boundaries of what has been done, what is being done, and what could be done. The founder, Sean Horton, said his mission is to mix these elements while still maintaining the integrity of a festival that pushes the boundaries of art and science.
On June 27, the remaining 60 acts that will be appearing at the festival will be announced. The program of education workshops, film festival details, after parties, and boat parties will be announced July 11. Check out the Decibel website for ticket purchase and more information. Tickets purchased before June 26 will be discounted by 25 percent.
