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!

BPT’s Summer Music Festival Guide

Through the tiny window in the Event Promotions office, a ray of light penetrates the Brown Paper Tickets basement offices. It hurts my eyes to look at. It’s something that I haven’t seen for many months. What could it be? I think it’s sunshine! That tells me one thing, summer is coming. Time to break out the sunglasses and the shorts and get out there and do some outdoor living.

The sunshine also heralds the beginning of summer music festival season and, let me tell you, we’re ticketing tons of great festivals all over the country. From classical concerts to jam bands to indie rock, it’s all represented here and while my list is probably far from complete, I’ve included some of the festivals that caught my eye.
