The Northwest's Best NYE Celebration: USC Events' Resolution 2014

Deciding how to spend New Year's Eve is often stressful and a point of contention among friends.


Luckily for those of us who live in the Northwest the decision is obvious.  From the outrageous stage set ups to the incredible line up and the unmatched quality of production USC Events' Resolution 2014 is hands down the best NYE celebration. USC Events prides themselves on fusing "first-rate production, world class talent and state-of-the-art technologies."  Take it from a Resolution veteran, USC truly does creates a "one-of-a-kind EDM experience that overwhelms the senses."

life is

Above and Beyond

Every year the global trance family waits with baited breathe to see where Above and Beyond will be ringing in the New Year.  When I heard that USC was bringing the world's most popular trance supergroup to Resolution my jaw dropped and my excitement went through the roof. Known for infusing their live performances with LED messages, Above and Beyond will undoubtedly help set the tone for the new year by inspiring the masses to follow their dreams and live with love in their hearts. Whether you're a trance fan or not, I can promise you, you will cherish seeing Above and Beyond.  After all, we could all use a little group therapy.  Oh and if you haven't heard their newest release yet "Mariana Trench" it's time to get familiar, listen below:

Knife Party


Uplifting trance in addition to banging electro beats?  Yes please.  Like the yin to Above and Beyond's yang, Resolution 2014's other massive headliner is none other than Knife Party.  Knife Party is another supergroup that has taken the EDM world by storm.  Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen, from drum and bass group Pendulum, teamed up to produce genre bending innovative sounds of electro house under the name Knife Party.  Their productions are simultaneously energetic and filthy, melodic and bassy and wildly fun to dance to.  My favorite Knife Party track?  EDM Death Machine.  If you haven't heard it yet, let me know what you think in the comments below.
