Festivals like Paradiso are why dance music fans throughout the Northwest are penny-pinching and day-dreaming all year long. When we’re working hard and doing the less-fun things that are necessary to proper festival attendance, little things are useful to help remind us exactly why we’re putting in so much effort. Travel plans, ticket purchasing, and group coordination, can all lead to potentially stressful situations and, at times, have us questioning if all the work is worth it.
Then we hear that song or see that pic, and the instant reminder and flashback is all that’s needed to gain the motivation we need. We’re always doing what we can to re-live our favorite festival experiences. The release of live-sets is a huge aspect of major festivals around the world, and many ravers spend hours on YouTube and SoundCloud searching for clips of their favorites sets of the summer.
While there’s only a couple live-sets from Paradiso 2015 floating around the YouTubes, there’s many more photos that have found their way onto the internet. Turk Photos released its nearly 250 photo album from the annual gathering of more than 20,000 dance music fans. His continually great work at events throughout the Northwest is something we’ve grown accustomed to, and these incredible shots from Paradiso 2015 fit right in with his already impressive catalog.
So, we went through the album and found a few of our favorite photos in the three major festival categories: Lasers, Totems, & Bass (oh my!). Check out Turk Photos, lead by Orhun Uygur, on Facebook and over at the official site for more great pics!
