If you check out GO! Magazine tomorrow, you’ll see an article about the 4 Peaks Music Festival that says it’s happening Saturday at the Domino Room (which was, in fact, a last-minute change from earlier plans to hold it on a ranch near Sisters).
Thanks to yet another very, very, very last-second change, that article is wrong.
I just got off the phone with 4 Peaks co-founder Eric Walton, who said that at 9:30 this morning, he applied to Deschutes County for a permit to hold the event at 4 Peaks’ original location, the Rockin’ A Ranch near Tumalo, where it was held in 2007 and 2008.
And this afternoon, just before 5 p.m., that permit was issued.
SO … the 4 Peaks Music Festival is back on, at the Rockin’ A Ranch, located at 19449 Tumalo Reservoir Road. Gates will open at 1 p.m., and the music starts at 2 p.m. Bands include Handful of Luvin’, Jay Seals (of Blue Turtle Seduction), Wild Rye and Poor Man’s Whiskey. As of 6 p.m., Walton was working on getting Ten Mile Tide and The Mostest back on the bill, too.
Tickets are $20 and are available by clicking here. Kids under 10 get in free.
And next year, I’m going to wait to start working on my 4 Peaks story until after the first band of the day has begun to play.
