DMNW Selects: Must-see Portland shows for December


Seasons greetings! December is looking to be chock full of must-see shows in Portland. Despite some major holidays coming up, our favorite EDM artists don’t plan on resting one bit.

Starting the month off right will be a massive show at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Our representative sad boi Illenium is bringing the feels to Portland on December 1st for his Ascend tour. And he’s bringing Dabin and William Black along too, so you know it’s about to get emotional!

Portland is also getting a visit from the legendary Goldie, an early pioneer of drum and bass, as well as Darude, producer of the iconic track Sandstorm. Other big names include The Chainsmokers, Audien, and Gryffin.

If you can’t make it to Resolution in Seattle for New Year’s Eve, be sure to check out some of the parties happening in Portland. Pacific Northwest-native Manatee Commune is taking over the Holocene, and Portland’s best EDM venue 45 East is throwing a NYE party as well.

Balance holiday plans with some quality raving this month. Take a look below at our list of must-see shows in Portland for the month of December, and stay tuned for additional updates!
