What’s a raver to do with no large scale New Years Eve event in Seattle this year? EmeraldCityEDM has you covered! Keep reading for alternative New Years Eve events happening in the Seattle area. From House to Hard Dance, there are a multitude of local options. If you’re up for driving out of town, there are some excellent large scale events down south in Portland, OR and up north in Vancouver, BC. After Insomniac NW was forced to cancel their inaugural Abduction NYE event last year, they are not returning to ring in 2023. We sent multiple requests for comment, but have a hunch it’s related to the Seahawks game scheduled on January 1st (Insomniac PNW had to end Boo! Halloween early this year due to a Seahawks game scheduled at the same venue the next day).
