The self-proclaimed "underground" festival will take place in Oregon this June.
The second Closer festival will happen this year in Portland, Oregon from June 21st to 24th.
The four-day festival is spread across five venues in the Pacific Northwest city, with "a distinct focus on high quality underground electronic music." The lineup will be a mix of local Portland artists and American headliners from around the country, and will focus on the experimental end of the electronic spectrum. Highlights include Monkeytown signee and San Diego resident eLan, L.A's [a]pendics.shuffle, Droid's Raiz, and Chicago's Audio Soul Project. The local factor will be rounded out by techno DJ Bryan Zentz, techno/house jock JAK, and a live set from Audioelectronic, among many others. More names will be added over the next few weeks.
