Per the press release “10th Annual Decibel Festival lineup announced”:   2012 marked Decibel’s largest edition to date, bringing in over 26,000 attendees across 50 unique events. As curator and founder, I am proud to report that though the magnitude of Decibel has changed over the years, the integrity and creative vision of the festival has not. After 10 years, Decibel remains a grassroots, volunteer-run festival focusing on underground and experimental forms of electronic music and visual art from around the globe. We also continue to offer a free educational forum, for what is now a well established community of producers, deejays, visual artists, writers and professionals looking to interact with artists, companies and media outlets that share their common interests (The 2013 dB Conference program will be announced on August 20th).  …

Without further adieu, it gives us great pleasure to announce the initial 10th Annual Decibel Festival program. This announcement includes:
5 full days and nights of activities
126 confirmed artists from 20 countries (STILL more artist announcements to come)
26 club showcases across 11 premier venues (all included with the Decibel Pass)
6 official after-hours (all included with the Decibel Pass)
4 OPTICAL events (all included with the Decibel Pass)
Individual tickets to all 36 showcase are now available through our Tickets Page
