As dance music fans in the Northwest, we’re among the most spoiled in North America. We have a multitude of clubs, massives, and festivals taking place throughout our region year-round, with a quality sampling of artists and a wide variety of genres to choose from. Among the shows lined-up for the fall months of 2015, one stop stands out a bit more than the rest. Bringing bass backed by PK Sound, the Safe In Sound 2015 tour is the best show you won’t spend a fortune attending this year.
Yeah, Kaskade is turning Foundation Nightclub into every Northwest raver’s dream on October 8th. And we’re aware that both NERO and that one mau5 guy are making FreakNight 2015 a must-go event at the Tacoma Dome over Halloween-weekend. But, when a squad made up of Zomboy, Terravita, Datsik, Bro Safari, DotCom, and a one-stop-only special guest who happens to go by the moniker of Excision make their way to the WaMu Theater on October 17th, all bets are off.
This is the second annual Safe In Sound North American tour, which brought a bass-fueled lineup featuring Flux Pavilion, Adventure Club, Destroid, and Terravita to the Northwest last fall. For a lineup featuring the quality artists that Safe In Sound continues to strut across the country, we would gladly pay into the triple-digits. Thankfully, tickets are a more than wallet-friendly $63.75 after fees and taxes. Throw-in the glorious PK Sound, which Northwest ravers have been able to enjoy at festivals and massives throughout our corner of the continent over the years, and the tickets quickly become too great of a value to miss out on.
For bassheads, it’s hard to imagine a better night of music. We enjoyed much of the lineup at Shambhala Music Festival earlier this year, and we won’t be missing out on the opportunity for a second-helping. Supporting shows, tours, and artists that we’d like to return is an important part of the industry that some forget about when wondering why their favorite artists don’t come around the Northwest as much as they’d like. While we’d like to hope that artists make their way to our region because they love it as much as we do, we must understand that nothing makes a return more likely than a sold-out show.
A night full of the top artists in bass music, Safe In Sound 2015 is an incredible alternative if you need to let out some bass-rage after missing out on tickets to Kaskade, or are unable to afford FreakNight 2015. Even if those shows are on your raver-docket, Seattle’s Safe In Sound 2015 stop is more than worth splurging for.
