The always-spectacular Decibel Festival is back this year and taking place September 24-28.

Like always, Founder Sean Horton and team are bringing top-notch house, techno and groovy beats from the less neon- and drop-focused side of electronic music to Seattle.

As Rolling Stone noted, Sean has a good eye for the next up and coming talent. He booked deadmau5 in 2007 and several dubstep artists in 2009, right before both become very popular. dB has also been the US debut for many artists including Amon Tobin’s ISAM LIVE, Apparat, Moderat and Pfadfinderei.

Along with their OPTICAL shows, which have a focus on visuals along with the music, Decibel is bringing back their popular boat parties. This year’s water based events include showcases From Dub to Deep, featuring Shadow Child and Lauren Lane, and Anjunadeep with Lane 8 and Manik.

I am excited for almost every name on the bill but the names that stand out for me at the 11th annual Decibel Festival are Anna Lunoe, Lunice, Richie Hawtin, Scuba and Ten Walls. Check out the lineup and let us know who you’re excited to see and why in the comments section below.
