DEF Collective is Atlanta's Underground Gem

DEF is Atlanta’s leading underground music and arts collective. The organization is championing a contemporary movement of music and culture with consistently sold-out monthly parties. DEF events often take place in secluded warehouses and unconventional places like skateparks and tunnels. Filmed cinematically the Boiler Room-esque parties are unruly, engaging, dimly lit, and headlined by tenured and rising talents. The woman-owned and operated collective is uniquely attuned to emerging artists and trends of the underground.

Their latest underground events endeavor has finally been unveiled after weeks of speculation online. The ØFFLINE Project is an expansive multi-day music and arts event is taking place in the heart of Atlanta in October.
