Promoters of the second annual Paradiso Festival, an electronic dance music event June 28-29 at The Gorge, have posted a colorful promotional video of the upcoming event on YouTube.

The trailer below features footage of the crowds and craziness at last year’s inaugural event, which featured the slogan “Where Digital Meets Nature.”

The weekend festival created by Seattle’s USC Events features top EDM stars Tiesto and Kaskade, as well as dozens of other performers on three stages in a carnival-like atmosphere. This year’s festival has expanded into a two-day party, with abundant camping facilities.

A highlight of the 2012 festival, which drew a near-capacity crowd, was Swedish DJ Avicii’s two-hour show featuring a hit remix of Nadia Ali’s “Rapture.” Read my review of last year’s festival in the Seattle Times.

Don’t forget your sunscreen. There’s a good chance it’ll be sunny and hot.
