One fat rave

By Kayla Dickson - Staff Reporter

Bass-heads, kandi-kids, and shufflers unite for a night full of electronic music at Lucky 2017 this Saturday.

Over 20 electronic music artists will be featured at the USC Events festival this year at the Tacoma Dome on March 11.

Established in 1996, USC Events, which stands for United States of Consciousness, has been throwing popular club events and nationally acclaimed annual festivals such as Freaknight, Resolution and Paradiso.

"Lucky, for us, is about the celebration of spring," said Gabriel Ossa, marketing manager and director of guest services at USC Events. "It's a good way to kick off the festival season."

Although the festival season is just starting, this festival is one of the best chances to check out a diverse range of electronic music genres.

"We have a great lineup," Ossa said. "I'm a huge bass-head, but we have some great trance artists performing."

Headlining the festival this year is Knife Party, an Australian electro-house duo, and Nicky Romero, a progressive-house DJ.

Other artists performing at Lucky 2017 include Liquid Stranger, Audien, Datsik, Borgeous, and much more.

"It's nice to be back in the Tacoma Dome," Ossa said. "Between Conscious Crew and medics, we should have over 100 people working that night. It will be a good one."

Similar to other USC events, safety is a huge focus at the festival. Conscious Crew, medical staffing and security will be roaming the event, and multiple free water stations will be available for public use.

The show starts at 6 p.m., and features non-stop music on three different stages until 2 a.m.

"This is going to be the best Lucky we've ever had," Ossa said. "Tickets are almost 90 percent sold out."

Tickets are $91 for general admission, and $132 for VIP tickets, and will be available online and at the door until they run out. For more information, or to buy tickets online, visit
