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.
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. and let us know.
P.S. Don't forget to join our community on Facebook too!

SF EDM HOUSE RULES
These rules are in place to make sure we all have the best experience possible. :)
It goes without saying, but please avoid shameless promotion of self or affiliated events unless it is in a conversational, engaging, and respectful manner.
We are a group for the fans by the fans. If you are suggesting an event, would you be willing to host it and serve as a point of contact to other members who are attending?
If you are suggesting an event to the group, are you ready to offer a number of free entry tickets or other promotional incentives? If so, please describe in the suggested event form or email us directly.
