In just its fourth year, the riotously successful Chinook Fest has birthed a sister festival: Chinook Fest Summit. Held at Snoqualmie, Chinook Fest Summit is looking hot for its inaugural year featuring alternative rock up and comers X Ambassadors and soul singer Allen Stone, plus country folk stalwarts The Maldives, and blues destroyers Tango Alpha Tango. Not to mention Star Anna, Trout Steak Revival, Rust on the Rails, and Whitney Monge.
In the spirit of the original Chinook Fest, held later in the year in Naches, Washington, Summit focuses on sustainability and leaving the festival grounds better than when the party arrived. Local craft beers, ciders, and foods will be served. Camping is available right on the slopes, yoga, lawn games, hiking and kids activities are also planned. Tickets here.
Press release below.
What: Chinook Fest Summit
When: July 10-12, 2015
Where: The Summit at Snoqualmie, Summit Central Base Area
Who: All Ages
Bands: There will be 33 local and national acts playing the festival including Allen Stone, X Ambassadors, Barcelona, The Maldives, The Weather, Austin Jenckes, Vicci Martinez and more.
Vibe: Similar to their flagship event, Chinook Fest Central in September, Summit focuses on remaining sustainable, leaving the land better then when the festival goers showed up for the weekend. In addition, Summit will host local craft beer, wine and cider, as well as local food. Staying true to their Northwest roots is something that the Chinook Fest team prides themselves on.
Festival goers will be able to camp along the ski slopes (flat parts, of course!) in the beautiful Cascades, and also be able to partake in activities such as morning yoga overlooking the mountains, hiking, lawn games while listening to music, etc. There will also be a Kids’ Corner that will feature bouncy houses, face painting and a mural that will be completed over the
course of the weekend.
