Resolution 2018 was the New Years Celebration to be at in the Pacific Northwest

USC Events knows how to throw a party. Every summer, they bring dance music fans to the Gorge Amphitheater for the absolutely stunning Paradiso Festival. Halloween weekend is quite the time as well in the Emerald City, where they unleash the Sinister Circus at Freaknight

During New Years, they present us Resolution: a night filled with joy, confetti, memories, and diverse music. 

Undoubtedly, there’s no other place to celebrate the New Year in the Pacific Northwest.

The festival takes place inside of the WaMu Theater: a large venue connected to CenturyLink Field where the Seattle Seahawks can be found every other Sunday. Even with the size of the venue, it’s still easy to navigate and find the friends you lost while you stopped to use the restroom.

>Within the extremely accessible venue, USC provides a copious amount of bars to fuel the party and water stations to keep everyone hydrated. They also offer lockers (some with built in chargers), a coat check, and a cool down room where guests can sit down and relax in between sets. They also provide everyone with a nifty festival map to give an extra hand at navigation:

This year, USC was unable to book the venue on New Years Eve. To make up for this tragedy, they added a brand new stage! The mainstage, entitled The Time Capsule, held performances from favorites across all spectrums of EDM. Artists like K?D, NGHTMRE, Nero, and Alesso continuously filled the sprawling stage.

The Enchanted Forest returned this year as the bass stage. Throughout the night, the audience was battered by bass. Dubloadz, Ghastly, Feed Me, and a plethora of others made sure no one left the stage without a neck brace.

The newest stage, The Clock Tower, served a healthy dose of house all night. The stage hosted huge names like Destructo, Gorgon City, and Duke Dumont. As you may imagine, they had no problem keeping the dance floor moving. Check it out:

Festival-goers were also blessed to have help from the wonderful Conscious Crew. This group of inspiring individuals patrol the venue and help those who may have partied a bit too hard. Designated by their neon-orange shirts, it’s impossible to miss these good samaritans when one is in need. USC Events proudly hosts them at every festival they put together. If you’re interested in volunteer opportunities at festivals, they’ve got you covered as well. You can find more info and their application here.

USC Events has it down when it comes to hosting massives. Whether you’re looking to groove on the dancefloor all-night long to some funky beats or bang your head to crushing bass until the sun comes up, they’ve got you covered. This isn’t one to miss next year.

There’s a handful of events coming up as well.Catch USC in green at Lucky this St. Patrick's Day. Paradiso is on the horizon too, as they’ll be sending festival-goers to one of the most beautiful places on Earth June 15th and 16th. Whatever the event you plan on attending in the PNW , find the tickets here.
