Decibel Festival 2009: Shilo’s Showcase Suggestions

Due to popular demand I am writing up my showcase suggestions for the 2009 Decibel Festival which begins TOMORROW!

I have been pimping for this festival for a while; I believe strongly in the smart curation of the party. These lineups are not just thrown together, but rather placed with precision into intelligent mixes of eclectic talent. In case you haven’t figured it out by now, I write for Decibel, and am honored to be a part of Seattle’s EDM festival.

I have bolded my top pick for each day, and added links in orange to the showcase descriptions that I wrote up.

Happy Decibel everybody!

DETROIT!!!

Did you just scream it in your head? Or out loud, if you are me?

I’m even more twitchy and excited than usual this morning because I just booked tickets to go to the Detroit Electronic Music Festival aka Movement over Memorial Day weekend! Not only am I stoked about the travel, Michigan being one of the five U.S. states I have never been to, but CHECK OUT these peeps, lots of fatty artists and can I say: it’s going to be West Coast heavy all up in Motor City!
