What we're about

Calling all EDM lovers!

You've found one of the largest EDM meetups in the Bay Area. More than just going to shows, we're a community centered around electronic dance music.

Here's how it works:

A. We list as many EDM events going on in the Bay Area as possible. Some weeks may have 10+ events happening!

B. We pick 1-3 events per month to make official. Official meetups are "hosted", i.e. they will have a concrete place and time to meet before the show (like a pregame at a bar) and are perfect for meeting new people in the city. If you're not sure if an event is official or not, check the title or description of the event for the words "official" or "hosted", or leave a comment on the event page.

C. For any non-official (i.e. unhosted) events where our official organizers can't make it, we leave it up to you to be proactive. If you'd like to meet up with people, reach out in the comments section of the event and see if anyone else in interested!

D. We *highly* recommend our official meetup events (e.g. Dolores Park socials, barhopping, pre-games before big events) for meeting new people to go to shows with. From there, it's much easier to go to unhosted events and see familiar faces.

E. We also collaborate with local venues and DJs under the collective Frequency SF. Check us out on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ReverseNights) or Eventbrite (https://www.eventbrite.com/o/frequency-sf-18079764602) to see our latest events.

F. Interested in being an organizer? Some perks include free swag, community recognition, invites to organizer-only events and more! Still interested? Reach out to Jon G (https://www.meetup.com/SF-EDM/members/5014795/). and let us know.

Cheers,
Jon

Dreamstate Harbor

Needs a location

## Paul Van Dyk, Giuseppe Ottaviani, ilan Bluestone, Craig Connelly, and more are set to play the debut edition of Dreamstate Harbor in June!

***

Each November, trance families from around the world descend upon the NOS Events Center for Dreamstate SoCal also affectionately referred to as Trancegiving. However, that’s not the only place that the trance-fueled experience has found a home, as recent editions have seen it take place in Europe and Miami as well. Now, they’ve set their sights on some summer fun in the sun with the news of Dreamstate Harbor.
Set to take place on June 11-12 at Berth 46 on the Los Angeles Harbor, excitement already began to build for Dreamstate Harbor when the initial details dropped earlier this year. Today, they’ve kicked that up an extra notch with the full lineup for the upcoming edition that includes massive artists in the trance scene such as Paul Van Dyk, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Sean Tyas, John O’Callaghan, ilan Bluestone, and Craig Connelly.
Also joining in on the fun are some other heavy-hitters in the scene including Sander van Doorn with his Purple Haze alias, as well as Markus Schulz, Infected Mushroom, and Astrix. Also found on the lineup is a flurry of rising and local talents such as Adam Stark, Vangar, Sidekicks, Mr. Brooks, and Jorza. This eclectic and thorough lineup really highlights some of the top trance and progressive talent.
Tickets for Dreamstate Harbor 2022 go on sale Thursday, April 14 at 12pm PST. Head over to their website for more details and to make your purchase, and don’t forget to RSVP on Facebook so you can stay in the know on future updates.

Swedish House Mafia with Pre-Game! | Chase Center

Needs a location

Rave fam! SHM is coming back to the bay!

Because this is at Chase, an inside meetup will not be possible due to assigned seating. If you are lucky enough to have a floor ticket, we will all try to stay together under the light up SFEDM sign. The only meetup we will be able to do as an entire group will be at the pre-game. Time and location TBD.

Tickets: https://www.ticketmaster.com/swedish-house-mafia-paradise-again-tour-san-francisco-california-09-16-2022/event/1C005B558A1828F0
