Though it feels like it just started, summer is nearing its end, and soon we will all have to retreat indoors to get our live music fix. But a Washington based-concert/festival production group is helping us end the summer on a high note at one of the most gorgeous venues in America, The Gorge Amphitheater. Named Pollstar Magazine’s “Best Outdoor Music Venue,” and having recently played host to multiple nights of Phish and Dave Matthews Band, will be seeing thousands of electronic music lovers come out to the first Magnifique.
USC Events is known for bringing together a variety of different genres into one location, whether it is for a full weekend or for just one day. Magnifque, taking place September 17, will feature a variety of different acts from all across the electronic music spectrum. Headlining will be one of the most prolific artists in electronic music in the last decade; Kaskade. The Chicago based house producer has been on a rise to EDM superiority over the years thanks to his gorgeous production skills and phenomenal live show.
Canadian based duo Chromeo will also be performing, and they’ll be bringing along a ton of equipment to show The Gorge one of their famous LIVE performances. The funky, soulful electronic group has had a killer summer, already throwing down incredible sets at Mamby on the Beach, and Life Is Beautiful, as well as their headliner, “Funk on the Rocks” at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado. If you love to dance (and if you’re reading this, you probably do,) make sure to get yourself to the front for these two dudes.
Also bringing the funk will be festival scene favorite, Gramatik. His music and live show is known to attract fans of various music backgrounds, and his beats will keep you dancing until you can barely stand. Deep house producer Duke Dumont 100% needs you to be at Magnifique, while drum and bass prodigy Netsky will be getting down for those that like their music a little bit faster.
The “future” side of electronic music will be getting things started off right. Future bass artists Branchez and Giraffage will be manning the first slots with some beautiful tunes, while OWSLA signee Mija will keep us guessing with one of her “fk a genre” sets.
If you’re near the west coast, or just want to go out and see some great music at a beautiful place, Magnifique will be the best place to get one of your last festival fixes. Tickets are super cheap for talent quality of the show, and you can also camp, too!
