As festival season slows down and the weather gets cooler, the rise of your favorite local venues heats up for another epic Fall tour season and hoodie season! If you live in a major US city, there are raves every weekend and keeping up with them can be hard.
Have no fear, iEDM is here to tell you the 10 Most Anticipated Electronic Tours For Fall 2017. I selected these tours due to exclusivity, new production, guest artists, and new albums.
From dubstep, to techno, to live instruments, there is something on this list for any EDM lover. Grab your tickets and gear up with new rave wear for some unforgettable performances from your favorite EDM artists.
Deadmau5, you either love him or hate him. This controversial producer is hosting a “Lots Of Shows In A Row Tour” this fall traveling around his homeland of Canada mostly, but making a two-night stop at Red Rocks in Colorado. The show is the end of October, which for Colorado could mean snow. Bundle up because this is one of the only U.S. recent stops where he will have his new Cube 2.1 production. Whether you’re a Deadmau5 fan or not, there is no denying how epic this tour will be and ravers from all over will be coming to see what the Mau5 is all about.
After cancelling several U.S. summer dates due to visa issues, Shpongle has announced a North American tour and he is bringing the Shpongletron. Only a few cities will be blessed with this epic and rare performance including NYC, Philadelphia, and Boston. His new Codex VI album is coming out this month and guaranteed to be a psychedelic delight.
Our favorite live electronic duo Dominic and Jeremy are wrapping up their summer festival tour with Imagine Festival in ATL, Meadows Festival in NYC and Life is Beautiful in Vegas. Then they host their 6th annual Rowdytown two-night run at Red Rocks on Sept. 29 & 30th. October they start a West Coast tour, and will donate $1 per ticket towards their A Big Gigantic Difference Foundation raising money towards building a computer lab at Denver’s Youth On Record.
Let there be house, love and techno spread as the Desert Hearts crew Mikey Lion, Lee Reynolds, Marbs, and Porkchop are heading cross country with multiple stops in Cali, over the South and Midwest, and ending in Seattle. Their Desert Hearts Festival always sells out and for a reason. Here is your chance to see what they hype is, these guys are defining modern techno.
Illenium has been busy this summer with unforgettable sets at EDC Las Vegas to Electric Forest. The tour launches off at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado, hits the West Coast and to the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, and even over to NYC’s Terminal 5. Illenium, aka Nick Miller, has promised an all new show from his successful Ashes Tour with more live instrumentation.
Good Times Roll, Good Will Prevail, and now Good Will Continue Tour - we’re sensing a theme here from our favorite funky saxophone producer. After selling out two amazing nights at Red Rocks, Griz continues his tour across the country from cities like Eugene, Oregon to Atlanta, Georgia. My favorite thing about Griz is even if you have seen him 500 times, his shows are always unique and different.
Odesza just blessed us with a new album this past week called “A Moment Apart.” It features beautiful vocals and that chillwave Odesza sound that they have coined as their own. Their “A Moment Apart” World Tour jumps continents from Australia to the UK, and thankfully a few cities in the U.S. Odesza is an amazing act to catch live because their live instrumentation production goes beyond the average. This Seattle duo’s third studio album is Grammy worthy.
The Floozies are a funky duo of brothers Matt and Mark Hill from Kansas. These two had been called Kings of Electrofunk, and we at iEDM agree. Their Funk Jesus tour is going to be extra special because of all the awesome guests they have joining them. Some cities will be blessed with Boombox and some with The Funk Hunters. Other dates have The Widdler and EPROM. Whoever your city gets is promised to be an epic dance party no matter who the special guest is.
Sluggtopia at Red Rocks on Oct. 6 features a night of vomitstep featuring NGHTMRE, Joyryde, and Boogie T. Then Snails launches his fall Shell Tour across the nation hitting up almost every major US city from Chitown to San Fran. He will be debuting his “Shell” production with 150k watts of bass. Touring support will range from Funtcase, Boogie T, 12th Planet, and more. Be ready to be blown away bass!
Skrillex asked Chris Lake to team up for a house project called HOWSLA under his label and the tracks that have come from it have been the songs of the year. “Operator” was dubbed the ballet of Holy Ship 2017. His style of house music is new and modern with lots of dancey bass. iEDM got the chance to interview him after announcing his Lose My Mind Tour at Electric Forest, check that out HERE.
