Summer is in full swing, but that doesn't mean you can't start planning for the end of it. Magnifique makes its first appearance at The Gorge Amphitheater on September 17th. Here's all the information you'll need to get your tickets. rally your crew, and begin dreaming of that Columbia River sunset.
Read more about the newest northwest festival in our Q&A with USC Events.
Dreamy, funky, cerebral...the artists on the Magnifique lineup certainly don't scream festival, and that's all very intentional. USC deliberately selected unique artists that will provide a completely different experience than Paradiso
Who could that special guest be? I know Seven Lions just moved up here (you're welcome, by the way
), but our money is on Tchami or Grizmatik (to make up for Freaknight 2014). Remember that with Capitol Hill Block Party and Bumpershoot
, Seattle is already getting visits from some artists that could very well fit the billing just a few weeks earlier (so that's a no on Porter Robinson and Marshmello...sorry).
Remember to check out our Spotify playlist to get yourself acquainted with some of those artists you may not have heard much from before.
Tickets are on sale as of Saturday, July 9th at 10am PST
. Like with all other USC Events, you have to be 18+ to get into the venue. You can get tickets either here on LiveNation (with fees) or at the following retailers without fees while available. Payment plans will also be available starting July 14th.

Yes, yes; to answer everyone's question, there will be camping at Magnifique
. And yes, you get to camp Friday night AND Saturday night (camping starts at 3pm on Friday, September 16th and goes until 12 noon on Sunday, September 18th). All is right with the world.
STANDARD CAMPING - $65.00 PER VEHICLE
Lovingly nicknamed 'district 9,' GA camping is where the party is at. You'll be sure to find something going on at any point of the day (or night) and you're . Showers (if you need them) are available for $3, but make sure that you get up early. The line is sure to grow once the masses wake up. Don't forget your earplugs!
PREMIER CAMPING - $115.00 PER VEHICLE
A little bump in price gets you quite a bit of peace and quiet. You can always find your way over to GA if you feel like joining the party. Private restrooms, free showers, shuttle access to and from the venue, and a pretty nice view of the Columbia River to boot.

so gorge. much wow. (don't worry...Doge will be at Magnifique too)[/caption]
TERRACE CAMPING - $185.00 PER VEHICLE
The best in glamping. Private (cleaner) bathrooms, free showers, and shuttle service to the show; in addition to bonus concierge services and free coffee in the morning. Oh, and that view gets upgraded too.
If you don't feel like camping at the venue, you can always go up the road to Wildhorse. Great food, hot showers, clean bathrooms, nice staff, and possibly best of all...enforced quiet hours. They'll even drive you down to the concert and back.
