Paradiso has it all. Three days of awesome electronic dance music, 30,000 pumped-up fans, and riverside campsites are just a few of the perks of a trip to this amazing festival at The Gorge Amphitheatre.
Stunning stage visuals, fabulous artworks add to the ambiance of this event and you can look forward to catching some hot new acts as well as all your favorites every year during this summer festival.
Camping at Paradiso’s a next-level occasion with standard sites, luxury glamping spots, the five-star Oasis campground, and the Terrace campsites with a dedicated concierge service. There’s no grubby, muddy camping here, although the ground’s a little rocky in places.
The organizers really push the boat out with this festival held at the foot of Whitehorse Mountain in Darrington.
Apart from four solid days of music on four stages, the event also offers helicopter rides, horseback riding, rafting, and tubing. There’s a real vacation vibe buzzing around this event and the riverside campsites in a lush woodland environment only add to the happy atmosphere.
Kindness, creativity, and kinship is the mantra of Summer Meltdown and you can enjoy it all against a soundtrack of bluegrass, EDM, and rock music.
Another Seattle offering dedicated to showcasing local creativity, the Capitol Hill Block Party’s on the go every July. The ultimate street party, this even takes over East Pike Street on the Hill with six stages featuring a host of local artists from all over the Pacific-Northwest.
Anything goes genre-wise, with performances ranging from rock to pop, and much, much more. There’s no camping at this city-based three-day event but you’re bound to find a cozy little B&B or backpackers nearby to lay your hat.
The Tacoma Dome’s the venue for this one-day St Patrick’s Day celebration that doubles as a celebration of spring.
This March dance party’s all about the EDM, featuring the country’s best DJs, producers, and artists. All the shows are indoors which creates a condensed, electrifying vibe and also protects you from any unexpected spring downpours.
There’s talk of extending the fun to two days in the future, so keep tabs on our website for updates.
