The 2018 edition of the free, all-ages local music festival will be held July 21-22. As usual, the lineup runs the gauntlet of establish artists to newly-formed bands, from piano-pop to hardcore punk.
At the top of the bill is local soul institution Ural Thomas and the Pain. But there's also recent Best New Band finalists Blackwater Holylight, 2015 Best New Band finalists Máscaras, experimental beatmaker Omari Jazz and rapper KayelaJ, who only began releasing aggro club bangers a few months ago.
This year, the festival is shrinking from three days to two. But with MusicfestNW and Project Pabst taking the year off, it's one of the only festivals happening in town this summer—not to mention the only festival dedicated exclusively to local artists.
