Seismic Dance Event, the US’s premiere boutique house and techno festival, has announced the lineup for its 6.0 edition at The Concourse Project in Austin, Texas on November 10th-12th, 2023. Seismic remains a leading name in the global underground dance movement, building its legacy on gathering world-class international musical talent in an intimate environment.
Headliners for the 2023 edition feature patron saint of modern electronic music and mau5trap founder deadmau5, Black Book Records heavyweight and super producer Chris Lake, and storied mainstage icon Kaskade performing a Redux Set.
The heavier strains of techno have become a staple of the Seismic experience, which will come courtesy of breakout sensation Anfisa Letyago, the early 2000s influenced productions of Klangkuenstler, the relentless 999999999, and the hit-making Space 92. The more melodic variations of the 4/4 sound will be presented by Korolova, Franky Wah, Stephan Jolk, and Fideles. DJ Tennis and Carlita’s Astra Club project pushes the lineup into the avant-garde, while the booms of the new house wave are felt from Australian export Wax Motif, chart-topper Eli Brown, and Norwegian brothers KREAM, plus Chris Stussy, VNSSA, Mau P, Azzecca, and Pawsa.
Seismic Dance Event will have two main stages, both indoor and outdoor – Volcano and Tsunami – each having their own distinct production elements and curation. Art installations, food trucks, and a multitude of surprises throughout the venue further Seismic’s position as the region’s most immersive electronic event to date.
The Concourse Project is a fifteen-acre venue run by the RealMusic Events team. The venue was recently ranked 39th in DJ Mag’s Top 100 Clubs list, while Seismic Dance Event was also nominated in the Best Boutique Festival category for DJ Mag’s Best Of North America awards series for 2023.
The RealMusic Events team behind Seismic Dance Event and The Concourse Project has spent the last 14 years fostering the Austin scene as a burgeoning home for the electronic sounds of tomorrow. It is this commitment to writing the next chapter of the city’s diverse musical history that stands at the heart of the Seismic ethos.
