Organizers of the sixth-in-seven-years annual 4 Peaks Music Festival near Tumalo recently unveiled several bands in their 2013 lineup, and to my eyes, it’s more eclectic than years past:
— Greensky Bluegrass, an easygoing, fairly traditional, only sorta jammy bluegrass band from Michigan
— MarchFourth Marching Band, the Portland-based street-performance mega-spectacle, yes, marching band
— Dehli 2 Dublin, a highly danceable, Canadian mashup of Celtic fiddle and bhangra beats
— plus 4 Peaks “house band” Poor Man’s Whiskey (who’ve played all six fests), Bend-fave jam band MoonAlice and Poor Man’s Whiskey side project JED.
Tickets to the June 21-23 festival go on sale right here tomorrow at an early-bird price of $108 (plus fees), which includes camping and parking. Kids younger than 10 get in free. Fewer than 500 tickets will be sold, and the price will increase at some point in the near-ish future, so if you want the best deal, act quickly.
I went to the first 4 Peaks back in 2007 but have not returned, not because I had a lousy time, but because there are lots of live-music opportunities each summer and only one of me. But I’m penciling this one in for 2013.
