Our PNW sisters and brothers have announced the preliminary line-up to this years Decibel festival. When we ran into DB Founder Sean Horton in Detroit and Montreal we chatted quite a bit and he informed us that this year’s festival was going to revolve heavily around dubstep. More bass for your face! We hope lots of folks from DC will make the trip this year to Seattle, for another great North American festival.
Alex Under, Alter Ego, Benga, Caspa, Daedelus, Mad Professor, Martyn, Monolake, Move D, Voodeux, The Wighnomy Brothers and more!
