Seattle’s Decibel Festival, now in its fourth year, is the Pacific Northwest’s answer to a multi-media arts festival, and the folks behind it have done a bang-up job this year bringing in the best musical and visual acts around. In addition to the performances and installations, the festival will also feature workshops and panel discussions, events on audio and visual technology, 6 venues including the very popular Chop Suey and Barca clubs, and, our personal favorite, a beer garden.

The artist lineup includes the likes of Speedy J, Green Velvet, Thomas Fehlmann, Telefon Tel Aviv, Alex Smoke, Apparat, Nortec Collective, Claude VonStroke, The Dead Texan, Latinsizer, Lusine, Jeremy Ellis, and many more.
