Fall 2018 Pacific Northwest Event Guide

As festival season officially comes to a close, touring picks up once again. Over the fall and winter seasons, there are tons of exciting shows that will be adventuring to the region. The Pacific Northwest dance music community has seen a lot of growth in the last few years, meaning we have lots of options to choose from.

Some of our highlights across the northwest include: Rezz, Zhu, Louis the Child, Andrew Bayer, G Jones, Paul Van Dyk, Tchami, and Flux Pavilion. Many performers, such as Zhu are doing shows in both Portland, Vancouver, and Seattle. While others are visiting only one of our cities: for example Excision for Seattle, Claude Von Stroke for Vancouver, and Slander for Portland.

Over the years, October has earned the nickname “Ravetober,” but if you check out the list, you’ll find there are so many shows in November and December too! Perhaps we need a nickname for the entire fall to winter season.
