Dance Music Northwest is the region’s largest nightlife website, most-visited EDM magazine, and two-time award-winning media company. We provide users new music, top-tier journalism, event calendars, club and DJ listings, and nightlife merchandise.

We love our locals, and were founded on the idea that you don’t need to be a giant EDM conglomerate to thrive and do good. We’re actively involved in the music scene we support, and that love has allowed us to grow into an award-winning nightlife media company with interests in publishing, events, business listings, software development, and business intelligence. Headquartered in Seattle, DMNW also serves Vancouver, Portland, Boise, Spokane, and all areas between.

We never accept pay-to-play coverage, or for inclusion in any of our Soundcloud playlists. Our site is entirely financed through display ads, store sales, and the personal investments of our owner. You can be confident that anything we publish is chosen because it enhances the local electronic music scene. Or because it’s dope new music. We write about a lot of that too. Elevate Dance Music.

It started with a very simple idea: “The Northwest needs a site to support its local dance music scene.” A casual conversation quickly turned into a rudimentary but passionate website. We’ve worked in the music industry for many years, and we wanted to give back. Remove barriers for others. Focus on our gifted local Northwest DJs and producers, and the music fans that support them.

Turns out, running an online magazine is an insane amount of work if you’re doing it right. The DMNW Team has expanded to over 30 insanely dedicated family members who are crazy about dancing and music. The quality of our product is a direct result of the passion of our Team, and we’ve got the most passionate team in music journalism.

In 2016 we expanded our efforts and launched our Event Calendar, Club Pages, and DJ Listings. These services help connect venues, fans, and artists. In 2017 we launched a boutique nightlife merchandise Store. We also lobby the City of Seattle to fundamentally change their approach to concert and drug safety. We want make a difference. Join us.
