Paradiso Festival, held at The Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington state, has one of the best lineups of the summer. With three stages, you get a vast variety of electronic music at any time of the day.
Although this lineup is straight fire, here are the three sets that you should definitely not miss this year at Paradiso:
Digital Oasis is the house/trance stage, you’ll catch me groovin' here most of the weekend- but you surely find at i_o 's set. i_o is an upcoming Techno DJ/Producer. Be careful, death by techno is a real thing - and he specializes in it. He just released his “Death by Techno” EP, so make sure to give it a listen! This is the #1 set I am looking forward to that weekend. If you’re lucky, you’ll get to hear is a remix of Above and Beyond’s: Alchemy - currently unreleased but its absolute fire.
Make sure you get in early enough for the PNW’s very own: Frida K. Frida K willl open Digital Oasis for the day and her tech-house vibes will start your festival off right.
The Wreckage is the home to the headbangers of the Pacific Northwest, and home to me during Opiou’s set. You shouldn’t miss this set because his style is more of a funk-bass instead of dubstep. This will be one of the most unique sets of the weekend for sure, and one of the most fun. I highly recommend catching his set before continuing to break your neck throughout the day.
Nothing will ever beat the view you get while at Paradise, Paradiso’s Mainstage. All the sets at this stage will be nothing short of remarkable. Based on the view alone, anywhere you sit on the hill, you’ll feel like you have the best seat in the house. If you end up staying at Digital Oasis or the Wreckage all day, make sure you catch Zhu. Zhu at mainstage has been a dream of mine for some time now. I cannot wait “Hometown Girl” and his “Faded” remix by Odesza from my favorite hill in the world. Do. Not. Miss. This. Set.
