In just a few short weeks, thousands of festival goers from around the country will descend on the beautiful Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington for the 5th annual Paradiso Festival. Hosted by USC Events at one of the world’s most iconic music venues, Paradiso Festival is sure to be one of the Pacific Northwest’s best electronic music events of the year. The festival offers stunning views as far as the eye can see, paired with a sundry lineup of electronic newcomers and veterans alike, all on top of so many ways to stimulate the mind, body, and spirit. What more could we ask for?


With the theme “Digital Meets Nature,” Paradiso is the perfect combination of everything digital (think crazy lasers, massive production, and the best electronic beats), and anything natural (awesome weather, picture-perfect sunsets, and captivating views). Throw in 28,000 beautiful humans dancing together and spreading the Paradiso message of positive music, art, and culture, and you have a recipe for the perfect festival. You can get lost in the music at the Digital Oasis stage, take in the sights from the top of the ferris wheel, or bust a move with some new friends at the top of the hill – either way, you’re bound to have a great time.


Boasting an incredibly diverse lineup across five very different stages, Paradiso gives an opportunity for everyone to catch their favorite artists, as well as stumble upon some new ones. Among the many talented acts at the festival, you can check out the funky tunes of GRiZ, get bouncy with the house sounds of Billy Kenny, sing along to the classics with Tiësto, or get transported back to old-school dubstep with Flux Pavilion and Doctor P. Whatever your tastes, you’re sure to find tons of musical talent to enjoy at Paradiso.


The excitement doesn’t stop at the lineup. Camp Paradiso is back, with a ton of activities for every attendee to get glam’d up, chilled out, and ready for each day of the festival. Paradiso attendees can take lessons on hooping, get their hair, makeup, and glitter done, take a yoga class or two, and make their own kandi and totems. The festival offers everything that you might need to take your weekend experience to the next level. Just bring yourself and your creative vibes – all supplies will be provided for you.

Inside the festival, you’ll find even more ways to satisfy your free spirit, with amusement park rides, art installations, and theatrical performers set against the beautiful Columbia River Gorge backdrop. The party doesn’t stop after the festival ends, with a Silent Disco to keep you movin’ and groovin’ until 4 am each day.


With so much to do, see, explore, and hear, Paradiso Festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre is sure to provide an indescribable experience for all its attendees.
