Feel the Love This Friday!

Northwest Lovefest began in the same Seattle neighborhood as the Brown Paper Tickets flagship office. It’s a community-based music and arts festival that began in 2010. What originally started as a celebration of the artistic talent residing in this eclectic neighborhood has now expanded its vision and scope to include like-minded talent from throughout the Northwest.

The goal of LoveFest is to provide an affordable alternative to the high-priced, fenced-in music festivals that have become the norm. They have lowered advanced ticket prices this year and with the help of TerraPass, will be neutralizing the carbon waste from their generators. They also donate a portion of each ticket sale to offset 50 miles of carbon per person. Last year they offset 9.3 metric tons of carbon waste from the festival. Through these environmental efforts and by lowering the admission price, LoveFest gets closer to their goal of being all about ‘love for the environment and love for one another.’

This year’s festival will take place on Saturday, June 30 and Sunday, July 1 in Magnuson Park. Preview shows will take place in the months leading up to the festival. These shows will give folks a taste of the incredible musical talent that will be hitting LoveFest stages this summer. The kickoff show will take place at Nectar Lounge, this Friday, February 10 and will feature live performances from Cody Beebe and the Crooks, Perry Acker and Redwood Son. You can pick up advanced tickets right over here.

Get out to Nectar and support Northwest LoveFest, a true community, music and arts festival – powered by love!

Northwest LoveFest: Feel the Love August 27 and 28!

Northwest LoveFest is coming up fast! This festival, based in our hometown of Seattle (in our home neighborhood of Fremont, even!), is right in tune with what we’re all about: healthy, sustainable communities, and a positive effect on humanity. So of course, we’re stoked to be ticketing for this festival. LoveFest has only grown in the past year, and it looks like it’s going to be an even bigger and better festival. And it’s only in year two!

LoveFest was founded in 2010 as an environmentally responsible celebration of creativity and social service. In tune with their philosophy that music festivals should have a positive effect on humanity and the environment, all carbon waste from the festival itself and all attendees will be offset in partnership with TerraPass. Other environmentally-friendly attributes of the festival include free water to all attendees who bring their own cup or bottle and even a free bike valet on-site! Read the rest of this entry »

A Taste of Love Gives You a Sample of Northwest LoveFest

Some of you may remember last year’s Northwest LoveFest, a music and arts festival that took place along the ship canal in Fremont. It was a wild success, and festival organizers are bringing Northwest LoveFest back for a second year. To build hype, plus raise funds to help this year’s festival be the best it can be, Nectar Lounge is hosting A Taste of Love this Wednesday.

Entertainment includes a Northwest LoveFest all-star jam with R.U. Donne featuring members of EQlateral, plus live hip-hop from DJ Gumbeaux and DJ Sea opening. Live art will be going on throughout the night, plus dancing and drink specials!

If that’s not enough for you, LoveFest will be raffling some fantastic prizes, the crown jewel being two round-trip tickets to anywhere event sponsor Alaska Airlines goes. Read the rest of this entry »
