Decibel Festival 2013

Seattle's Decibel Festival 2013 kicks off today (September 25th) and will span through until Sunday (September 29th) featuring a wide variety of live and visual acts as well as DJ sets at some of Seattle's best venues.

Today sees some incredible acts take us through the night with Sydney band Light Year kicking things off at the Q Nightclub to be followed by German DJ Ben Klock who brings us over two hours of his best beats. Over at the Showbox Market, electro-acoustic musician Rena Jones begins proceedings, while London-based DJ Kode9 is on at midnight at Crocodile. We'll also see Peter Hook and The Light, led by the former Joy Division and New Order bassist, round off the night in Neumos. 

It's not just about the music though. Over the next few days, there'll be a variety of music-based conferences including today's Dubspot and Control Voltage showcase by James Patrick, guiding you through all areas of modular and analog synthesizers. There'll also be a variety of boat parties with entertainment from Axel Boman and Ben UFO on the Friday and loads more amazing and unmissable live acts such as The Helio Sequence, Big Black Delta, Little Boots, Gold Panda and Zedd.

It's a jam-packed schedule and celebration of festival's 10 year anniversary. You can still pick up tickets at $250 each for the whole event - though you can grab singular tickets for individual venues at a much cheaper price as well. Bring on the decibels!
