While everyone went in Day one of EDCthose of us in Seattle went in WaMu Theater to see Dillon Francis Flosstradamus, Valentino Khan, and do dot. Remarkably, Dillon Francis last played here in Seattle in 2019. He was already scheduled to perform in November 2021, but that show had to be postponed. After waiting patiently for six long months, I was finally ready to deal with Dillon Francis.

I arrived a little later in the evening just as Valentino Khan took the stage. Valentino Khan really showed up to run away and played all the bangers and anthems. Valentino Khan was followed by Flosstradamus, whom I was very happy to see again. The last time I saw Flosstradamus was his last headlining show in Tacoma in 2016.

Flosstradamus pumped us up for Dillon and that was just what we needed. He told the crowd how they tried three times to play this show that I didn’t even know about. He brought the vibe that turned WaMu into its own EDC and created the same feelings as if we had been there and seen the show under electric heaven.

After Flosstradamus, Dillon Francis took the stage. The last time he played here was in 2019 for his brother’s birthday. It was long overdue to let him play here again. The second Dillon took the stage, the vibe and the crowd felt like they had both just stepped on.
Dillon knows how to please an audience, he played everything we wanted to hear. Old hits like The Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” and LMFAO’s GOAT song “Party Rock Anthem.” Then of course his own hits, including songs from his recent album Happy machine. It made me so happy to finally hear these songs live. During his set, Dillon pulled out Valentino Khan to perform their new hit together: “move it.” Dillon also gave us a sneak peek at his brand new song featuring Illenuim and Evan GIIA, which is due out soon.

Seattle holds a special place in Dillon’s heart because his brother lives here. His family was at the show and he ended up bringing them on stage. You could feel the warmth and love emanating from the crowd and vice versa from Dillon. It definitely felt like the end of a one night only Seattle EDC event. Hopefully Dillon comes back to Seattle soon we know he really loves it here.
