Synth City is an event and promotional company based out of Portland, Oregon.

Mission Statement:
Our goal is to help the synthwave community flourish here in Portland and to provide a home for both artists and fans alike. A place where the artists have a platform for their music to be heard and see live in-person and a place where fans can come together to show their support.

A Little About Us:
Synth City was founded by Chaz Contreras (PSYK) and Brian Sullivan in September 2018 and made its official launch in November 2018. Our dream was to simply create a platform in Portland where both local and traveling synthwave artists could display their talents to a wider audience. A community driven by the fans, and a company made by synth artists for synth artists.

Skip 5 months into the future and we’ve hosted the likes of Betamaxx, Tonebox, Lucy in Disguise, Lazerpunk, Shredder 1984, Droid Bishop, Future Holotape and many more talented artists. We are now a team of 4, with Troy Dierke (DreamReaper) joining in February and our good friend Michael Weber, artist and owner of Seattle-based Luxury City Records, joining the team on the label side of things.

We have MASSIVE plans for the second half of 2019 including mini-festivals, merchandise, a curated top notch playlist, label distribution, artist interviews and a behind-the-scenes look into how we make it all happen, available exclusively here on Patreon.

Our Ultimate Goal:
There is something special about the passion synthwave fans have for the music and artists, and it’s truly beautiful to witness and take part in. It is absolutely the synth community that makes this vibrant scene flourish as much as it does. We are merely the mediator between artists and fans, helping to strengthen the bond that is omnipresent in this scene.

This brings us to the main reason we decided to start a Patreon. Whether it’s the production of live synthwave shows, providing artists with merchandise and distribution, or creating other opportunities for their music to be heard, we want to help make sure the artists are taken care of financially. Every dollar of funds received goes into growing the synthwave scene that we hold so dearly.

We are eternally grateful to the Portland community for helping build us, and the synthwave community for presenting us an opportunity to take part in something so groundbreaking and electrifying! We are truly thankful for all the love and support synth fam.
So join the movement as we help revive the future of the 80’s!

Stay Rad,
- Synth City
