Seven Lions is taking a page from the playbooks of Bassnectar, GRiZ, and Above & Beyond, announcing his own curated event to bow later this year.
Jeff Montalvo will debut his new event series, dubbed “Chronicles,” a concept born out of the world of Seven Lions. “Chronicles” is a mysterious place that’s existence has been foreshadowed throughout the fabric of the project. Now it all comes together in a live spectacle that will usher in an expansion of the world of Seven Lions. Montalvo says of the event roll out:
“Stoked to announce the first chapter of my new event series…I’ll be inviting some of my favorite acts to the WAMU Theatre in Seattle. Me and my team are working hard on lots of extra touches to make this one special. It’s special for me to be able to kick this series off in Seattle. The community here has always been really supportive and welcoming to us.”
With new stage design, custom art installations, roaming performers, and vendors, “Chronicles” will provide a unique, immersive experience and a musical journey that progresses through deeper grooves, trance, bass music, psy-trance and Seven Lions’ own inimitable blend.
Curating a line-up that delves into all corners of his influences and tastes — with acts from the worlds of trance, bass music, and psy, respectively — “Chronicles” will also see Seven Lions play two contrasting sets to book-end the event’s musical journey. Opening up the room with a special “Observatory” set, Seven Lions will explore his deeper and more experimental side as with his recently launched mix series, whilst his headline closing set will provide the classic Seven Lions experience that he has imported to festival stages, clubs, and theatre halls across the globe.
