4 Peaks Music Festival
June 15 - 18
FESTIVAL — Jam band and new grass enthusiasts rejoice! Your local go-to festival is celebrating its 10th year by announcing a stellar lineup that includes 90s progressive rock greats, moe. and Americana-bluegrass favorites, Railroad Earth. Expect the sets to have a wide variety of sounds, live improvisations, adventure and humor sure to get the crowds up and groovin'. Supporting acts include acoustic bluegrass band Infamous Stringdusters, folky singer-songwriter Sierra Hull and festival favorites Poor Man's Whiskey, with, as always, an infectious, high-energy show.
Slightly diversifying their sound this year, the festival shines with the addition of funk saxophonist Karl Denson (whose renowned show recently sold out in Bend) and British Blues Hall of Fame guitarist Matt Schofield. Nine other acts have also been revealed.
The fest moves to a new location which promises to provide a cozy, sociable yet grand atmosphere, complete with awe-inspiring mountainous views, grassy fields and a late night party tent, while still providing a family friendly atmosphere. So get that RV ready, book your vacation time and plan to groove that booty. // Multi-day festival. Stevenson Ranch, Bend. $165 early bird tickets with $15 vehicle fee. Kids under 10 free.
