TECHNO & ELECTRONIC MUSIC CONCERTS: Tour, Schedule, Tickets and more...


If you have been to a dance party, bowling alley or rave, you have definitely heard some type of electronic music. Often called electronic dance music (EDM), it describes a plethora of music styles and genres, such as house music, drum and bass, dubstep, trance, and techno...

Between these genres, EDM encompasses anything from ambient soundscapes to rapid, pulsating hardcore dance music. Something that makes EDM somewhat controversial—a love it or leave it type of genre—is that instead of being sustained by vocals and instrumentals, EDM treats these musical features as an add on or accompaniment to a song as a whole. Other musical features that describe EDM are its inorganic sounds, rhythm emphasis, sample excerpts, 1980s instruments and gear, and club-like venues.

Although EDM has a very distinct sound, it has influenced countless genres, artists, and songs. Elements of EDM can be found in tons of music, reaching back to the 1960s. Think of the Moog synthesizers iconic to Pink Floyd or the keyboard/synth combos heard in The Beatles’ more experimental numbers. Whether nodding along to “One More Time” by Daft Punk and “Everytime We Touch” by Cascada or seeking something grittier like “Turn Down For What” by DJ Snake and Lil Jon, EDM has been as popular as ever in mainstream music in the last couple decades.

Techno is one of the most inventive and developed sub-genres within EDM. Many people associate it with songs like “Sandstorm” by Darude, “Satisfaction” by The Biz, “Firestarter” by The Prodigy, “Exploration of Space” by Cosmic Gate,” “Cotton Eye Joe” by Rednex and “What Is Love” by Haddaway. However, techno was a much narrower category of music at its inception. It originated in Detroit in the 1980s at the hands of young African-Americans. This history is a testament to how much live performance matters in EDM. Created by young, diverse people in basements, garages, and other informal venues, that live audience-performer/DJ interaction has always been key. Known for its futuristic, distanced, cold, mechanical, effect-based approach, techno became a huge music movement, seeping into and inspiring new sub-genres of techno, reaching to places as far as Europe. Some true classics in techno include “Sharevari” by A Number of Names, “Cosmic Cars” by Cybotron, “Strings of Life” by Rhythim Is Rhythim, and “No UFOs” by Model 500.

If you are at all curious about EDM and techno, there is no better way to learn more than to attend a concert. EDM is meant to be played live, on large, capable sounds systems. It creates an immersive experience, encouraging listeners to get lost in the pitches and pulses. There are so many different variations, that a concert with a multiple-performer lineup or festival would be an ideal place to start exploring. Whether you are a fan who knows just what you like or a newcomer looking for a smorgasbord of sounds, use this site to search for the best concerts for you.
