Its that time of year again for digital to meet nature at the upcoming Paradiso Festival! Paradiso happens every summer at the beautiful, Gorge Amphitheatre in June. Paradiso 2019 is taking place on Friday, June 14th & Saturday, June 15th. There are tons of reasons why you should buy a ticket, but I’ll narrow it down for you. Here are the top 3 reasons why you shouldn’t miss out this year:


1. The Venue

The Gorge is rated the most beautiful music venue in the nation because there is nothing else like it! The views from the amphitheater itself will take your breath away and accompanied by your best friends + awesome music- you’ll be in heaven.

Something else that makes the Gorge unique is the campgrounds. The campgrounds are the biggest and best party I've ever been to, I always meet so many people here. The first year I went to Paradiso, it was Thursday night before the event.  I told my brother that I was having the time of my life, and he responds with, “We haven't even gone into the festival yet.” I was shook, to say the least.

2. The Lineup

Although I am a full believer that the lineup does not make or break a festival; the vibes, venue and especially the people you attend with will all make your experience something to remember. BUT, this year- the lineup is guaranteed to bring people from all over the country together.


Paradiso 2019 Lineup

The amount of different genres represented on this lineup is crazy. We have heavy bass hitters such as Bear Grillz, Cookie Monsta B2B Doctor P, and Riot Ten- but there is also a bunch of super chill acts in here such as Opiou, Klingade, and Two Friends.

There is something for everyone to enjoy all day long - so I am scared for the Hunger-Games style set conflicts everyone is going to have. One thing I love about Paradiso is the 3 different stages that each have a unique theme. 

This lineup is STACKED with headliners, such as: Skrillex, Illenium, Kaskade, Zeds Dead, ZHU, Alison Wonderland and more. These headliners will all most likely be played on the Mainstage, which looks amazing during the day because of the breath-taking views of the Gorge in the background. It also looks amazing at nighttime because of the visuals and fireworks.

The amount of house & techno going to be played, likely all going to be at, Digital Oasis Stage this year is INSANE. First of all, we have Frida K from here in Seattle as local support which is HUGE because she is incredible. We also have Shiba San, LOW STEPPAWalker & Royce and my personal favorite i_o.

The Wreckage Stage is usually known as the bass stage. In the past, the Wreckage has hosted bass acts such as Kayzo, Getter, and Snails.

Other than music, USC Events provides patrons with amusement park rides, free with the purchase of a ticket. In the past, Paradiso has had a Ferris wheel, a giant swing set, and a big spinny top. There’s nothing like taking a break from raging and riding the Ferris wheel to get a full 360-degree-view of the entire Gorge. Interactive art installations are also a huge reason why I look forward to Paradiso every year!
