2 SOUND EXPERIENCES
Opening ceremonies by Monster Planet
Monster Planet is an ever-expanding collective of producers, musicians, sound designers, visual artists, and B-movie enthusiasts improvising soundtracks to some of the most bizarre and cheesy B-movies in existence.
All artists work together to create a live surreal mix of cutting-edge ambient/experimental/drone music and obscure, low-budget cinema live mixed by video artist Leo Mayberry.
by Modular Seattle
Located behind the Museum
Step inside this live, ambient, quad sound and immersive video art experience!
Sound artists will create ambient music using science fiction like modular and synthesizers on the grass surrounded by multiple rear projected panels of video art by C.M. Barth and utilizing a quad sound set up creating a surround sound and sight experience. Bring a blanket and step inside this other worldly domain to trip out!
21+ LUSIO DANCE GARDEN PARTY AT THE Volunteer Park Conservatory
House music dj’s Wesley Holmes & Chad Neiro will spin up a sweet 21+ dance party inside the botanical gardens of the Conservatory that will be lit with lights by PNTA.
The bar will extend outside the Conservatory this year allowing for more capacity!
*This is a ticketed event in conjunction with the Lusio festival to help raise funds for the non-profit; The Friends of the Conservatory.

“How to experience Lusio?”
Lusio is fully interactive, family friendly, community driven event so participation is key!
Lusio is meant to be playfully experienced in 2-3 hours and is FREE family-friendly, open to all, and for one night only.
Be prepared to wander and explore the corners of the park to find the art living under trees and in the gardens.
Got a crazy glowing outfit to wear? BRING IT! Dress in your most glowing, LED, light up attire to get into the spirit and contribute to the whole atmosphere! Wrap your dog in L-wire and let your kids wear all the sticks they can handle. Bring your LED hulu hoops to show off those hoopin skills.
Please help us leave the park as pristine as we found it by picking all all trash, using the proper recycling bins and not smoking on park property. You know what to do Seattle 🙂
