From DJ Shadow to Gold Panda to Amon Tobin to ODESZA to Deadmau5Decibel Festival has proven itself year after year to be one of the most varied annual music festivals in Seattle. After last year boasted such names as Richie HawtinOneohtrix Point NeverCom TruiseBaths, and Andy Stott, many were biting their nails in anticipation to see what this year’s lineup would have to offer.
