Kaskade Joins The 2017 Lineup!
Posted: Monday, September 25th, 2017
USC Events is thrilled to announce KASKADE as our FreakNight 2017 Special Guest Headliner!
We could not imagine a more exciting way to complete this dynamic and eclectic lineup than with the anticipated return of one of Seattle’s favorite artists, as our annual eerie extravaganza is brought back to its original home at the WaMu Theater.
Ryan Raddon, known as Kaskade, has been in the trenches of the EDM scene as an original recording artist and in-demand DJ for more than a decade. He has released seven studio albums, including his latest, Fire & Ice, scored nine Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay Chart, created chart-topping remixes for everyone from Lady Gaga to Beyoncé, appeared at all the major summer festivals, and has performed between 150 and 200 headlining shows a year for the last 10 years, building a name for himself as an innovator of the EDM scene as we know it today. In doing so, he has helped to lay the groundwork for a titanic musical and cultural shift: a post-rock EDM revolution that has captured the imagination of a new generation of music lovers across North America.
“Kaskade’s signature sound is as unmistakable as it is beautiful; a combination of dewy female vocals, tough electronic underpinnings, and memorable melodies.” -- Billboard
