Saturday and Sunday, May 27th and 28th 

Time to light your matches and rise from the ashes: The Illenium Live Tour kicks off over Memorial Day weekend at the beloved Gorge Amphitheatre. The king of melodic dubstep will take the stage as Illenium on Saturday and Sunday, bringing two distinct sets.

On the first night, Illenium will unveil his new show, marking the next chapter for the Grammy-nominated producer and DJ. Illenium’s recent experimentation with his signature sound has shown a fresh side of himself, and his tour will feature this updated dimension with a full band ensemble, including a pianist, drummer, guitarist, and string instrumentalist. But before Illenium shows up, the crowd will get warmed up by Paws, DNMO, Moore Kismet, William Black, Eptic, and Tiesto.

Illenium will treat us to a throwback set on the second night that will guarantee some cry-bangers.  Sharing the stage with him are Dabin, Acraze, Nurko, Imanu, Tsu Nami, and Friendzone. This performance holds special significance for Friendzone, as it marks the duo’s debut at The Gorge—the very venue that inspired member Jesse Woods to become a DJ in the first place. “The Gorge is such a unique venue. I love it there,”  Woods told The Ticket. “It’s been a dream venue this entire time.”
