The end of 2018 is quickly approaching, and the time has come to find the perfect event to sign off your year with one last epic weekend. For all my Alberta ravers (and all those who want to party Canadian style), that ultimate year-end bash is Get Together in Edmonton, Alberta. Get Together is a two-night event, providing back-to-back parties on Thursday, December 27 and Friday, December 28, 2018.

Ready to give 2018 its proper farewell? Here’s a full rundown on what you need to know:

The Venue

Get Together is held at the Shaw Conference Centre, located in the heart of Alberta’s capital city. The Shaw is recognized as one of North America’s top five performing venues. It is commonly known for pushing the past the limits of normality and providing a truly exceptional experience for its guests. The event centre hosts a half a million guests each year. Trust me - they know a thing or two about hosting a good party.

Picture this: You and your squad walk into a beautiful glass building, fanny packs on and tickets in hand. As you make your way down the stairs to the main event hall, you can feel the vibrant energy of the ravers around you. Once your foot leaves that last step, you leave reality behind and walk into 150,000 square feet of electronic euphoria.

The Lineup

Get Together’s lineup is jam-packed with a variety of artists you don’t want to miss. The event has a dynamic lineup, catering to the city’s love for bass music with a heavy focus on trap and dubstep. Personally, I’m really looking forward to catching Alison Wonderland’s set. She hasn’t been to Edmonton since 2015, and I think that long-awaited return paired with the release of her Awake album this past spring will bring some serious energy, from both herself and the crowd.

The Name

What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the name Get Together? The most obvious answer: a gathering of friends. The event name means exactly that. Two of western Canada’s event powerhouses, Blueprint and Boodang, collaborate together for this special two-night event to provide guests with the ultimate entertainment experience. Combing their expertise, Boodang and Blueprint are able to maximize the amount of creativity, resources and energy being poured into every detail of the event, allowing for an experience truly like no other.

Boodang has been a part of the Canadian dance music scene since 1999, and they have been groundbreaking pioneers for the EDM community ever since.

By working with city officials, Boodang was able to lay the foundation for the electronic community in Edmonton, and continues to serve both the city and their fanbase as a trusted entertainment enterprise. Boodang has continued to dedicate themselves to their community, and in 2007 they became the first promoter to throw an event at the Shaw Conference Centre (owned by the city of Edmonton). Through their renowned reputation, elaborate events and loyal fans, Boodang has become a staple in Canada’s EDM community.
