Summer is here and that means a wide range of music festival options on the horizon. It's a wonderful time to be an EDM fan as concert promoters work to outdo each other with bigger venues, bigger artists and bigger light shows. Still, some music festivals stick out above all others, enticing EDM fans to make long treks to see their favorite artists in far-off locations. 









One of those festivals is right around the corner and is located in the state of Washington. Situated at the Gorge, the Paradiso Festival lies at the intersection of nature and digital, combining the two instead of placing them at odds with one another. In any case, we've compiled a short list of why the trip to Washington for Paradiso is completely worth it. 

The Landscape

It's worth noting that the Paradiso Festival is held at the Gorge Amphitheater which lies along the Columbia River and Columbia Gorge Canyon. Few concert venues can boast the breathtaking views that the Gorge Amphitheater can -- the entire place looks like it's stripped right out of a postcard from the Pacific Northwest. Apart from that, the natural acoustics of the amphitheater are an added bonus for EDM fans looking to get the most out of their experience. 

The Lineup

As beautiful as the Gorge may be, it would all be for nothing if the musical experience itself wasn't up to par. Thankfully, Paradiso consistently puts together one of the best EDM lineups every year. 2017 will see the likes of Tiesto, Zeds Dead and Zomboy headline the late June festival. What could be better than listening to your favorite big room bangers while staring out at one of the most beautiful canyons in the United States? 

The Vibe

Paradiso prides itself on offering the digital and the natural together in an organic way, with neither one overshadowing the other. Instead, the new, shiny digital world meets with the serene natural world to create a new environment altogether.
