Contact Music Festival takes place this weekend from Dec 27-28; Festival Addicts correspondent Madison Applin gives us a a first hand account of how to prepare for the cold, the bass and  this year’s unique line-up! Tickets are still available here!

Contact Music Festival boasts an impressive undercard in addition to major headliners.

Having been a regular attendee of PNW festivals throughout the last 5 years I can confidently say this Contact lineup is far different from the rest. From San Holo’s wholesome performances to Wooli’s heavy bass filled sets, whatever style of edm you enjoy Contact Festival has you covered.

Contact Festival begins Friday December 27th and ends Saturday December 28th, featuring 2 stages and runs from 5pm to 12am both days. With the event running in late December it’s guaranteed to be a chilly one outside, be sure to dress for the weather! You can purchase lockers on the Contact Festival website, or upon arrival use the festival’s coat check for a fee of $5-$15 depending on item size. Having your belongings ready to be searched, as well as tickets and I.D.’s on hand when you arrive will help for a smoother and quicker entry.



While the venue is indoors, Canada is sure to be chilly in the winter, be sure to take advantage of the coat check!

Attending Contact Festival last year with my brother was an absolute blast, getting to see such a wide variety of styles at a festival put us through every happy and exciting emotion you could think of. Crankdat, Skrillex, and Nghtmre blew us away with their high energy sets and absolutely insane production. As well as Alison Wonderland with performing live cello and Galantis performing live drums. We can’t wait to see who puts on just as breathtaking of performances this time around. I have a good bet Nitti Gritti’s energy on stage will stand out from the rest, as well as Rezz’s hypnotic visuals, and G Jones incredible and incomparable performances. Make sure to hydrate the days leading up to the event and prepare yourself yourself for a groovy, light hearted weekend with some heavy bass and wonky wubs in between.
