Where's the Party At?

April 23 thru April 29, 2012

Posted by Dark Matter on April 23, 2012 | 0 Comments

We thought it would be fitting to transmit all the upcoming shows (that we like) so you have a better idea of where the party will be, besides in my pants. Most of the events we're mentioning are thrown in the Mid-Atlantic region and host EDM music of some type.

If you know about a dope event on the horizon send me the link at transmit@darkmattersquad.com and we will check it out. Doesn't matter if its here or there, as long as it's somewhere.

This week has two multi-day events going on in the Washington, DC area. The Forward Festival runs From April 25 - 29, 2012 and the International Soul Society Festival runs form April 21 - 29, 2012.  Both events have tons of programs scheduled during this week. We highlighted two of them below, but we recommend you visit their websites as well to learn about their other workshops, discussions, music events and much more!
