This year Decibel Festival will be expanding our infamous boat party series from two to four days. In addition, this year's boat parties will offer a wider variety of musical styles including house, techno, grime, soul, funk and hip hop. These feel-good afternoon cruises on scenic Lake Washington and Lake Union are the perfect compliment to the Decibel Festival club experience. If you're looking for an intimate, aquatic setting in which to socialize, dance and soak up the beautiful September Seattle weather, look no further than the 2012 Decibel Festival Boat Parties! 

For our initial boat party, we're pleased to be co-curating and presenting with one of Europe's finest electronic music festivals, Dimensions (#3 on RA's top September festivals). This program will feature three highly anticipated performers from the 2012 Decibel Festival program, Star Slinger, Jimmy Edgar and Appleblim, who will be deejaying a variety of summer-vibe tunes ideal for the environment.
