With Decibel Festival ending its incredible decade-long run, there was a void in Seattle that the Chance of Rain Festival is poised to fill. The inaugural five-day fest kicks off tonight, presenting art, fashion, and music in nightly showcases at venues across the city: Q Nightclub, Crocodile, Re-bar, Monkey Loft, Artifact Gallery and the Islander Yacht. Detroit techno pioneer Derrick May headlines the fest, and many Midnight in a Perfect World guest hosts are on the bill, including Joey Webb, Pezzner, and Kadeejah Streets, to name a few.

Organized by former Decibel Festival volunteers, the organizers of this ambitious project are committed to "building a presence, team, and approach rooted in community and co-creation that lays the groundwork for growth and development in the years to come." And, yes, all events will take place, rain or shine.
