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!

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 »
