Roseland Theater
8 NW 6th Ave, Portland, OR 97209

Grab your dancing shoes and head to Portland, Oregon for the 2017 New Year; organizers of the Beloved Festival just announced a three-day celebration at the Roseland Theater from Dec 30 – Jan 1, 2017. The event billed as “Vote for Dancing” will feature an array of visual arts and live musical performances with the nation’s top dance-friendly acts including Beats Antique, Thriftworks, The Polish Ambassador and the Desert Dwellers to name a few. (Complete lineup at

Finding its intention and inspiration from a poem titled ‘Cast All Your Votes For Dancing‘ written by Hafiz; ‘Vote for Dancing’ is a dance party rooted in mythological consciousness, but with a political awareness, embodying the spirit of the election year with a celebratory twist. Not just another New Year’s dance party — Vote for Dancing will extensively transform Portland’s most established Rock club into a setting that inspires participants to get involved in the civil process as part of a growing conscious movement working to give voice to dire environmental and social justice concerns, nationwide.

At Vote for Dancing, the Nominee is You. 

Instead of focusing on specifics in electoral politics, organizers hope to empower the participants while building excitement towards civic action, creative resistance and a reimagination of democracy in an extensive transformation of Portland’s most established Rock club into an energetic, art-filled community hearth.

Ringing in the New Year with ten musical acts, ‘Vote for Dancing’ will highlight a full spectrum of exciting musical and visual performances over two days in Portland. With a lineup that reads like the whos who of the electro-dance circuit, the event will highlight performances with Beats Antique, Thriftworks, The Polish Ambassador, Desert Dwellers, Kalya Scintilla ft EveOlution, CloZee, High Step Society, El Papa Chango and Portland’s own, Barisone.

    Aquiring tickets to Beloved Vote For Dancing sounds freeing and self-loving. Just contributing good vibes to the movement of existence and continuity makes me feel ecstatic! I want to attend because their purpose seems divinely-influenced but I cannot even grasp how this night will go except for purely magical. It would be the night I would never forget.

This would be an amazing.way to bring in the new year. 2016 was the worst year of my life loosing 4 family members and i am ready to say goodbye to the old and welcome the new year. Im looking forward to a great 2017!

  67. Karina A. December 27, 2016 at 1:21 pm #

    This election was so hectic; so much was at stake, but so many people failed to participate in our democracy and actually vote. Events like this are a great way to promote one of our most important civic duties, and I would love to add my presence and my support to this night of dancing for a great cause.

  68. Becky December 27, 2016 at 1:45 pm #

    I would love to bring the New Year in with a sea of beautiful dancing people!
