Decibel is a four-day, multiple venue, community music and arts festival exposing the Northwest to both the international and regional electronic music scene. Our goal is to educate and entertain through workshops, seminars, open discussion, interesting venues, excellent sound, riveting performances, interesting visuals, and a diverse selection of quality electronic music.

The 3rd Annual Decibel Festival will be taking place September 14-17, 2006 in Seattle's Capitol Hill District. More than 75 artists will perform on eight stages throughout the event, with several showcases dedicated to emerging performers and DJs.
