dB2014: Thank You!


The 11th Annual Decibel International Festival of Electronic Music Performance, Visual Art and New Media has come and gone. We’d like to extend our deepest gratitude to everyone who participated in what was our most memorable program to date. We will be following up in the coming weeks with a list of media reviews, photos and an official recap of the 2014 Decibel Festival. Until then, we encourage you all to post any photos, videos or recaps of your own.

THANKS TO OUR STAFF & VOLUNTEERS
First and foremost, we’d like to thank all of the directors, managers, coordinator and designers who graciously and selflessly volunteered so much of their time this year. Without them, there would be no festival.
