The 3rd Annual Traverse City Microbrew & Music Festival and Other Great End-Of-Summer Music Festivals!

I hate to say it but summer is almost over. We’ve already started to feel the autumn chill in the air here at Brown Paper Ticket’s home base of Seattle, Washington. The bummer is that the end of summer also means the end of summer music festivals. We’ve ticketed some great ones this summer and there are still a few left to go before fall hits.

One that looks especially great comes from the folks over at Porterhouse Productions in Traverse City, Michigan. They’re the folks behind popular events like Paella in the Park and the Up North Fourth Festival and they’ve once again secured a solid lineup of great music and delicious local libations for the 3rd Annual Traverse City Microbrew & Music Festival happening this weekend. Musical headliners include folk rocker Martin Sexton and the Grammy-nominated Rebirth Brass Band from New Orleans. There will be over fifty breweries pouring tasty malt beverages and a cider, mead and wine court. The festival will also feature a silent disco tent where festival-goers dance to music spun by popular local DJs broadcast via a FM-transmitter to wireless headphones. The silent disco tent allows up to 200 dancers to shake their things in what appears to be total silence to the outside observer. The festival is billed as a “celebration of craft beer, local harvest and live music” and it sounds like the perfect way to say goodbye to summer. Tickets are flying out the door so pick yours up right over here before their all gone. Read the rest of this entry »

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 »
