EmeraldCityEDM Event Calendar
USC Events announces the return of the third annual Paradiso Festival on June 27th & 28th at the beautiful Gorge Amphitheater! The 2013 event was plagued with problems, including drug overdoses that were incorrectly attributed to molly, overheating and water shortages. EmeraldCityEDM is very excited that Live Nation & USC Events are once again partnering to bring us Paradiso, and we hope that this year’s event will not experience the same issues and will run as smoothly as the inaugural Paradiso held in 2012.
Stay tuned to the EmeraldCityEDM Event Calendar for information about upcoming public electronic dance music shows in the Seattle area, and this post for all publicly released Paradiso 2014 information.

11/25/2013 – Official announcement press release: Two years ago we embarked on a new adventure together to celebrate our culture at one of the world’s most beautiful venues: The Gorge Amphitheater. From the moment we set foot on the grounds, Paradiso Festival felt like home and we knew that the growth of this celebration was imminent. Last year our digital paradise adventure expanded to two days as thousands came together to make it the biggest dance music event ever staged in the Pacific Northwest! Gather your friends, because it’s once again time that we start our journey back to where digital and nature collide. The Gorge is calling and Paradiso 2014 is answering on June 27th & 28th!
We invite you to return to the recently crowned Top Amphitheater in the world (Billboard 2013 Touring Awards) for two days of the best electronic music set amidst one of the most beautiful and scenic views on the planet. Enveloped in a paradise complete with a vast landscape to explore, you may find yourself encountering an array of fun-inducing characters, relaxing with your friends in the meadows, and dancing late into the night.
