Sets by Fatboy Slim, LP Giobbi and more – Billboard

Earlier this month, 5,000 dance fans gathered at Austin’s Seismic Dance event to do what dance fans do best: dance.

Held at The Concourse Project, a 7-acre venue with three stages, 2022 marked the third year for the boutique festival, which launched in Austin in 2018 and has since become a destination for global house and techno acts.

“We want to provide the big festival experience with an intimate setting,” Seismic co-founder Andrew Parsons, who produces the event with his wife Kelly Gray, told Billboard in 2019. “We’re not trying to sell 20,000 tickets, because that’s not the goal. We always want to keep it boutique.”

Parsons and Gray are the creative minds behind RealMusic Events, the Austin-based production company that presents Seismic and has been credited for injecting underground electronic flavor into the “live music capital of the world.”

The festival is also committed to sustainability, partnering with Blond:ish’s Bye Bye Plastic organization to separate waste streams into landfills, composting, and recycling. (In the 2021 event, 16,468 single-use plastic cups were saved from landfills.) Seismic’s 2022 lineup featured huge hits like Jamie xx, Charlotte de Witte, The Martinez Brothers, Gorgon City and Oliver Heldens’ project HI-LO.

Also this year, British legend Fatboy Slim played a set that began with the indelible piano chords of his biggest hit of all time, “Praise You,” before transitioning to Freddy Mercury’s isolated vocals of “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen. (Seriously, listen to it.) Parisian rising star Chloé Caillet created a heady, sexy vibe; queen of the LP scene Giobbi fused house music and classic rock samples; and Palestinian producer Sama’ Abdulhadi delivered the hard-hitting techno that made her a global name.
