Decibel Festival 2012 Lineup Revealed (well, half of it anyway)

Decibel Festival founder, president, and curator Sean Horton stopped by The Morning Show to reveal the first half of the 2012 lineup first to KEXP listeners. Seattle is beyond fortunate to feature one of the world’s preeminent festivals of electronic music, running September 26-30, and based on this early look at this year’s lineup (60 artists out of 120), it’s only getting stronger.

Rising Australian star Kimbra, Carl Craig, Fennesz, John Talabot, Ariel Pink and Matthew Dear top the list. KEXP listeners will also recognize Yppah, Anomie Belle, Baths, Emancipator, port-royal, and many others.

As always, the 2012 Decibel Festival will feature a wide variety of showcases, a film festival, thumping after-parties, and another boat party. Get more information at the dbfest website and Facebook page. If you’re frugal, practical or just damn excited, you’re going to want to pick up a discounted pass, available through June 26th, at 25% off. Get them here.
