Illenium announces triumphant return to the Gorge for Memorial Day weekend

Last month, the electronic dance music community rejoiced at the announcement that Illenium will be returning to the Pacific Northwest for this year’s Memorial Day Weekend.

On May 25th and 26th, we will be heading to the Gorge Amphitheater in Central Washington for the third year of Illenium at the Gorge. The Grammy-nominated songwriter, DJ, and producer will be bringing a lineup of massive talent with him to give us the experience of a lifetime this spring.

Illenium has had a storybook career since his humble beginnings in 2008. Since then, he has worked with numerous fellow dance music superstars throughout the years. Some of his most notable collaborations have been with artists like Said The Sky, Jon Bellion, and The Chainsmokers. He has also made countless remixes of songs from artists like Galantis, Flume, Tove Lo, and even Taylor Swift and Lana Del Ray.

Through all that, Illenium has always had the superb ability to reimagine songs with his signature touch of heavenly and harmonic synths and uplifting melodies paired with cinematic percussion and accompaniments.

The Pacific Northwest has a special place in our hearts for Illenium, having spent part of his early life living in Seattle, Washington. Evidence of this can be seen in his sold-out performances and positive atmospheres at every show he plays in the region.

Near the end of May, we will be heading out to the town of George, Washington to enjoy the picturesque landscape of the Columbia River accompanied by the performances of some of our favorite artists from across the dance music scene.

This two-day event will include a star-studded lineup to keep us dancing, singing, crying, and head-banging throughout the weekend. On Saturday the 25th we will be dancing our hearts out to the sounds of acts like HVDES, KREAM, Blanke, and special guest Kaskade. On Sunday the 26th we will expect a day full of heavy bass and raging with artists like BIJOU, GHENGAR, Level Up, and direct support from Two Friends. We are as excited as ever to see what Illenium has in store for us on each of these nights.

Be sure to purchase your tickets soon and don’t miss out on a weekend of friends, fun, and incredible music with Illenium at the Gorge Amphitheatre on May 25th and 26th. For ticketing and venue information, policies, and accommodations, please click here.
