The 14th Annual Northwest String Summit (NWSS) returns to Horning’s Hideout (North Plains, OR) with the finest acoustic pickers and standout electric bands from July 16 – 19, 2015. Located just 20 miles outside of Portland, OR, Horning’s Hideout stands as one of the most scenic festival sites in the country; NWSS is the only music offering this year taking place at Horning’s Hideout. A family-friendly and locally-sourced festival, NWSS caps its capacity at 4,500 attendees to ensure an intimate experience for all festival- goers at an incredible ticket price. For more detailed information, please see:

The 14th Annual Northwest String Summit is hosted by Colorado-based Yonder Mountain String Band; arguably the top touring neo- bluegrass band in the world. Yonder will perform for 3 nights of music, and additional standout acts at this year’s festival include 2 Nights of Greensky Bluegrass, Del McCoury Band, Del & Dawg feat. Del McCoury & David Grisman, 2 Nights of The Infamous Stringdusters, Keller Williams’ Grateful Grass, Keller Williams & The Travelin’ McCourys, The Greyboy Allstars (Late Night Main Stage), Nahko & Medicine For The People, Elephant Revival (2 Sets), Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Fruition (2 Nights), Rising Appalachia (2 Nights), Shook Twins, Scott Law & Larry Keel with Darol Anger, Samson Grisman and Jack Dwyer, Larry Keel, Town Mountain, Adam Aijala & Larry Keel, The California Honeydrops, Dead Winter Carpenters, Darol Anger, Shafty, Frank Fairfield, Rumpke Mountain Boys, Henhouse Prowlers, Polecat, Trout Steak Revival, Gipsy Moon, The Grant Farm, The Student Loan, Crow and the Canyon, The Good Time Travelers, Eight Dollar Mountain, Pete Kartsounes, Arthur Lee Land, Alice DiMecele, The Hill Dogs, Left Coast Country, and more acts to be announced soon!

In addition to the Main Stage, this year’s String Summit boasts a brand new late night stage, the Kinfolk Revival Tent. Due to the overwhelming popularity of last year’s late night shows down at the Cascadia Stage, full production sets (including light shows) at the Kinfolk Revival Tent will commence shortly after the Main Stage shows featuring bands such as Greensky Bluegrass, The Infamous Stringdusters, Elephant Revival and Fruition. The Cascadia Stage will continue providing mellow morning entertainment running into the early afternoon, as well as late night music running concurrent with the Kinfolk Revival Tent.

Northwest String Summit partners with singular Portland organizations, food vendors and emerging Pacific Northwest-based musicians as a way to support the various thriving local communities. Celebrated Eugene, OR favorite Ninkasi Brewing Company will offer exceptional craft beers onsite for the fourth year-in-a-row, including an exclusive small-batch NW String Summit Festival Specialty Brew called Clusterpluck Session Ale. Made with Northwest Pale Ale and Honey malts, Clusterpluck is a light and refreshing golden ale — the perfect accompaniment to a summertime jam session. Additional sponsors include Klean Kanteen, Keen, and Marley Coffee.

String Summit event promoter Skye McDonald comments about the forthcoming festival, “More pluck for your buck in 2015! This year is about giving back to our fans, so we’re adding even more music and experiences! So much is in the hopper this year: This year’s talent will get at the heart of String Summit unlike ever before! YMSB is a gateway to traditional Bluegrass in the contemporary music scene and has helped spawn and boost this wildly popular genre, and we’re providing a lot of BOTH worlds with all of our favorites and yours with several sets each this year. Also, TONS of festival experience enhancements are in the works for our 14th Northwest String Summit. Due to the amazing growth and popularity of our second stage, we are adding another full-production stage for some very special, top-tier late night music along with daytime movies and seminars. The Cascadia zone will still be rockin’ all morning and late into the night as well, but we are diversifying by refocusing the area on Pacific Northwest sourced music and refreshments.”

    this would be absolutely amazing to win & much needed! I need a day like this after this year

    • Jeremy M. June 25, 2015 at 5:12 pm #

      I have always wanted to go to this festival! Time to boogie down to some YMSB!

    • Amanda Thompson June 26, 2015 at 7:09 pm #

      This is so cool. I would love ro win this. Haven’t got to do anything fun since we moved here from tx.

  2. Kelly June 1, 2015 at 12:26 pm #

    I would take my daughter, who loves all things banjo and happy people xo

  3. megan stolle June 1, 2015 at 12:27 pm #

    Big Fan here. it’s been toooooo long since I’ve attended String Summit or even been @ Hornings.
    Many friends of my close friends have tickets but I don’t (yet). I’ve been holding it down as a director/ co-producer for another summertime festival for years now and June is our busiest work period overall! I need a break and this would be epic!

  4. Shawn June 1, 2015 at 12:29 pm #

    This would be the best vacation from a very stressful job/life and I haven’t been able to afford to do anything like this in a long time. Sounds like fun in the sun I would love!

  5. Laura Chrestenson June 1, 2015 at 12:31 pm #

    I have never attended this and I would love to take my mother who has never been to a concert before. Thanks! :)

  6. Kellie June 1, 2015 at 12:59 pm #

    My boyfriend and I love playing disc golf out at Hornings and would love to attend one of their festivals!

  7. Dave VK June 1, 2015 at 12:59 pm #

    As a token of gratitude I’d like to win and give them to a dear friend of mine who really came through for me recently when I was in a dark and dangerous place in life.

  8. Anthony Trotta June 1, 2015 at 1:26 pm #

    It’s been years since I’ve been to string summit, I would love to go again! Hornings Hideout is too beautiful to stay away from for this long

  9. wayne June 1, 2015 at 2:05 pm #

    I have attended this festival since the beginning and it is the best. A friend of mine has never been and would be a greatly fantastic gift to give her and her man for their anniversary . Thanks for spreading the love.

  10. Daria Landar June 1, 2015 at 2:06 pm #

    I have been unemployed for the past 6 months and with limited funds I am not able to go to any festivals and concerts right now. I really wanted to attend Te String Summit this year because I love roots, bluegrass and Americana music. Horning’s Hideout is such a beautiful place and a perfect spot to enjoy all this fabulous creativity.

  11. Glynis June 1, 2015 at 2:10 pm #

    I would like to attend! I have never been before.

  12. Joe June 1, 2015 at 3:59 pm #

    I’ve never been to a music festival and I ain’t gettin any younger.

  13. Frank O'Guin June 1, 2015 at 6:23 pm #

    I’ve never taken my girl camping and she’d love this if I could.

  14. Andi June 1, 2015 at 8:12 pm #

    I’d love to take my daughter for her 10th birthday. She’s played violin for 5 years and would love to hear some live fiddle!

  15. Jason Kessler June 1, 2015 at 9:30 pm #

    I’ve been wanting to go to this festival for years, things have not lined up in the past to make it, hoping this is my lucky year:)

  16. peter mclean June 2, 2015 at 10:18 am #

    Pick me and Ill make sure all those Hippies Hydrate.
    Gotta stay hydrated. I also owe Bob Horning a punch in the arm, so that’d be nice…

  17. Mari Stephenson June 2, 2015 at 10:39 am #

    Just heard about the String Summit a couple of weeks ago from an enthusiast!

    I sing with a group out of Vancouver Washington called “Another Shade of Bluegrass.”
    Our purpose is to give something we enjoy to the community.
    We have been singing as volunteers at various senior living and rehab facilities every week for the past five years.
    I would love the opportunity to attend to attend the string summit.

  18. Nicole Harvey June 2, 2015 at 12:01 pm #

    Hiyo! I am dying to go to this festival! I live in NOLA and host a weekly bluegrass radio show on a community station, so the lineup is right up my alley! I also want to introduce my boyfriend to the magic of camping at a music fest as it will be his first experience. We already have our plane tickets and these festival tickets would be a HUGE help!


  19. Kathleen June 2, 2015 at 12:42 pm #

    Aaaaahhhhhh…to absorb the cosmic musical experience, embrace a place I’ve not been, & increase July’s measure of joy :)

  20. david June 2, 2015 at 1:45 pm #

    been to horning’s, but never for this … sounds like the perfect combo!

  21. Emily June 2, 2015 at 3:03 pm #

    I have lived in Portland my whole life and never gotten to experience Hornings Hideout! Tragic! I, unfortunately for my budget, am a mental health social worker and for financial reasons cannot attend kick ass music fests like this one. PDXPipeline, please help me with my own mental health by giving me this amazing experience! Thanks! Yee! :)

  22. Bobbi Jo June 3, 2015 at 12:00 am #

    This would be a great ending to my music therapy internship. A great summary to a great musical journey.

  23. Ashley B June 3, 2015 at 7:12 pm #

    Why, hello there! Last year I had tickets and due to a very unfortunate and unforeseeable event I could not make it and gave my ticket to a friend as a gift because she had never been to Horning’s before. Money is tight this year and I wish it wasn’t the only thing standing in my way of going. So here’s to trying to have a good time and sharing with others the wonderful, magical festival that is Northwest String Summit. Cheers!

  24. Brandi Patterson June 4, 2015 at 12:26 pm #

    I lost my dad, guy I was seeing and wonderful boss at work all in February. My life could easily be a bluegrass song. Last time I was at Horning Hideout I was playing disc golf with the ex and I would love to go back and listen to the wonderful music and make some new happy memories there.

  25. Gina Crawford June 4, 2015 at 12:42 pm #

    Portland is my favorite place to visit for music. It would be fantastic to combine a visit to Portland with a Horning’s. Great music ahead!

  26. Sam June 4, 2015 at 2:20 pm #

    I play disc golf at hornings hideout, and it is hands down one of my most favorite places in the state. I’ve never camped or seen music there, and with all of the great things I’ve heard about NWSS, I think this would be such an awesome experience.

  27. Leila June 4, 2015 at 2:29 pm #

    Yes please!!!

  28. Cora Kirkpatrick June 4, 2015 at 2:33 pm #

    I would love to win tix! I’ve never been to the NW String Summit as the price for tix is pretty spendy for this stay at home Momma.

  29. Anna June 4, 2015 at 2:34 pm #

    Wow what a great prize! I’ve heard SO many good things about this festival and Horning’s hideout. Would love to go!

  30. Grace June 4, 2015 at 2:39 pm #

    yes yes yes! I love everything about this- except the price!

  31. Cory June 4, 2015 at 2:47 pm #

    String me up Some Tix for this wonderful event!!!!!

  32. Marty Anderson June 4, 2015 at 2:53 pm #


  33. Erin June 4, 2015 at 3:05 pm #

    I’ve wanted to go to this for a long time but never have the funds to buy a ticket . It would be amazing to go!

  34. Michael Mann June 4, 2015 at 3:06 pm #

    I’m a 6th grade teacher, and have spent all year in a room full of 12-year-olds. My last day of teaching is June 12 and i am SO ready for some happy music in the great outdoors and would love to win tickets to this festival to start the summer right!

  35. Walker June 4, 2015 at 3:30 pm #

    My girlfriend and I would love to visit this event but we couldn’t afford it. Hope you can help us out!

  36. Steve B June 4, 2015 at 3:59 pm #

    Every year I tell myself “this time, I’m going to make it to ‘strummit'”.

    Sadly, it STILL hasn’t happened yet, despite friends reinforcing the fact that I missed a “hell of a time” the previous year. So here I am again, struggling with pulling the trigger. The desire to go is very real and very high, but making it work hasn’t yet solidified.

    If I had tickets, it would be a no-brainer!

  37. Curtis Eberle June 4, 2015 at 4:02 pm #

    Another reason to travel from Idaho to Portland!

  38. Coral June 4, 2015 at 4:50 pm #

    Hooray for Hornings! I would love to win these tickets because peacocks, pond swimming and bluegrass under the stars are some of my favorite things in the whole world.

  39. Jill Reyes June 4, 2015 at 5:12 pm #

    I’m a new native to Portland & love music festivals! I have frequented coachella many times & bonnaroo! I’d ❤️ to check out a festival in OR for my 1st time! Sounds so magical with all the trees

  40. Elizabeth Smith June 4, 2015 at 6:27 pm #

    I would love to go to there! I love bluegrass and acoustic music and I need to get away.

  41. Colleen June 4, 2015 at 7:12 pm #

    I so very much need some musical healing!! And with such a phenomenal lineup of some of my most favorite local (and not so local) musicians, string summit is the perfect thing. It’s probably my favorite summer festival!! And horning’s hideout is such a magical place. I can hear the music and the peacocks and smell the trees and feel the earth under my feet already! ❤️❤️❤️

  42. william longnecker June 4, 2015 at 8:29 pm #


  43. Dave G. June 4, 2015 at 8:55 pm #

    Winning this would be a definite highlight of our summer! And family friendly, so the 10 year old gets to go, too! LOVE this festival!!!

  44. Emily June 4, 2015 at 9:03 pm #

    This would be so much fun. I would love to go!

  45. mary b June 4, 2015 at 9:30 pm #

    they fiddled and plucked
    they strummed and hummed
    they tickled my fancy and tugged at my heartstrings
    oh you pickers, you sliders, you benders, you fenders
    each note carries me higher and higher
    I will reach the Summit riding your melody

  46. Jane June 4, 2015 at 10:31 pm #

    Fruition and loads more

  47. TomP June 5, 2015 at 10:06 am #

    This will be great

  48. Terri June 5, 2015 at 10:45 am #

    Camping and music you said my two favorite things, never gone to a music festival but there is a first time for everything. Please pick me, pretty please.

  49. sarah June 5, 2015 at 5:16 pm #

    I’m flying up from San diego for it! Love to win tickets for my 4 year going!

  50. CHRISSY June 6, 2015 at 11:39 am #

    just moved here and would love to experience this!

  51. charlie June 6, 2015 at 7:49 pm #

    I missed it last year, oh so sad. Would love to be able to make it this year and see the beautiful property, people, peacocks, and pickin’!

  52. Teresa June 6, 2015 at 11:06 pm #

    Wow this would be a great four days!

  53. jessica June 7, 2015 at 9:05 pm #

    Ummm, what?!?! I can’t believe you’re giving away tickets to this!!! How amazing! I would love to see such talented musicians in the NW but to whomever the lucky winner may be, cheers and happy dancing!!

  54. Dana G June 8, 2015 at 9:39 am #

    Ever since I moved out of NW Washington I have dearly missed the Darrington Bluegrass Festival. I have heard about the NW String Summit for a few years now but haven’t been in a place to purchase tickets. I can’t believe you all are giving away tickets to this- I would LOVE to win a pair and would be so thankful.

  55. Maura June 8, 2015 at 11:51 am #

    Great music, great people, great setting and… peacocks! :)

  56. Yossi June 8, 2015 at 1:04 pm #

    I’d love love love love love love love to win tickets for this weekend!!

  57. Elizabeth lee June 9, 2015 at 6:39 am #

    This would be a very memorable weekend! can take my new boyfriend,who plays classical acoustic guitar !

  58. Craig June 9, 2015 at 7:40 am #

    I’m flying out to Portland with my girlfriend to buy a car and drive it back to Minnesota. We’re also in the market to seeing something cool in Portland!

  59. Sarai June 9, 2015 at 9:30 am #

    I’m working full time all summer and working every weekend, which means I’m missing out on so many fun events and activities! If I won tickets to the Northwest String Summit, I’d take the weekend off and have myself a grand ol’ time! It’d make all those lost weekends worth it :)
    The reason I’m working so darn hard all summer is because I’m moving to New Zealand in September, and this may very well be my last chance to attend a big American music festival. With such a stellar line-up and a legendary venue, this will be an amazing send-off!

  60. Rebecca Stone June 9, 2015 at 12:58 pm #

    I want to dance my butt off in the woods to some amazing music!

  61. Arturo June 9, 2015 at 1:47 pm #

    Yes! Yes! yes! yes! yes! yes! yes!

  62. Erin Bourne June 10, 2015 at 6:43 pm #

    My girlfriend and I are moving to PDX July 15th!! We can’t think of a better way to start off our life here! :)

  63. Jenilee June 10, 2015 at 10:19 pm #

    It’s my birthday the 19th and my husband’s birthday the 16th! This would be our perfect birthday weekend we are huge fans of Nahko and Medicine for the people! Nahko reminds us to believe in the good things coming and helped is both to be courageous enough to start our own businesses! Cheers!

  64. Gabe June 10, 2015 at 11:47 pm #

    I am called. Will I win?

  65. ryan June 11, 2015 at 7:25 am #

    I just want to se KELLER!

  66. Shasha Andrews June 11, 2015 at 2:51 pm #

    However will you find the perfect person to bestow tickets upon? Everyone wants to go! I have never even heard of this before, and apparently it has been around a while. I am definitely missing out! I would indeed love to remedy this situation!

  67. Matthew June 11, 2015 at 2:54 pm #

    I can’t think of a better place to spend the weekend than at HH with all these bands.

  68. Kendall June 11, 2015 at 2:56 pm #

    So many of my favorite artists playing at my most beloved venue! Hornings is such a beautiful place, especially for String Summit. I would love to take my momma with me! :)

  69. Kristi June 11, 2015 at 2:58 pm #

    Peacocks. Yonder. Hornings. It’s a match made in heaven.

  70. paris otremba June 11, 2015 at 3:04 pm #

    YESSSS! this would be so much fun!!

  71. Kelly June 11, 2015 at 3:07 pm #

    I want to finally make it to Hornings this year! I’ve never been before and love the good ol’ banjo!

  74. Janet June 11, 2015 at 3:31 pm #

    I would love to take my friend there! She is recovering from bone cancer and would really love being there.

  75. Kaylee June 11, 2015 at 4:02 pm #

    Fantastic location! Great music! A chance to experience it all so close to home! I would LOVE the opportunity.

  76. James June 11, 2015 at 4:56 pm #

    Wow! What an opportunity! This is such a great event all around. Good music, location and people. Thanks

  77. Stephanie June 11, 2015 at 7:03 pm #

    I would love to go to celebrate my 6 months sobriety and bring my soulmate who is currently trying to come out of a deep depression, he has a musical soul and I think this event would help him immensely. Plus I love the lineup! Thank you!

  85. Kathy June 14, 2015 at 11:46 am #

    This will be an amazing chance to “get away from it all” and immerse yourself in simple living and incredible music provided by talented artists.

  86. Reg C June 14, 2015 at 12:36 pm #

    Always the Black Sheep until finding a home in Portland…please bring my dreams to Fruition and let me attend the World’s Finest music festival at Hornings!

  87. Tyler June 15, 2015 at 1:37 pm #

    I would love the opportunity to take my son to this, we would have a blast and make many great memories.

  88. TJ June 15, 2015 at 5:02 pm #

    Meeawww! (Peacock call)

  89. Ariana June 15, 2015 at 6:24 pm #

    This is the highest and most honorable use of string, I’d love to hear the results

  90. Matt June 16, 2015 at 11:11 am #

    It’s been almost 10 years since I’ve been to the String Summit. Every year since, my busy teaching schedule that has kept me from being able to go. This year, the only limiting factor is having the money to afford it. Maybe someday I’ll be back!

  91. Kelli J June 17, 2015 at 9:19 am #

    What are the odds that I am moving to Portland just a few days before this awesome festival starts. It’d be such a kickass way to begin my weird adventure with the city if I won these tickets!

  92. Collin Davidson June 17, 2015 at 11:19 am #

    I have never been to this festival and would love to attend a wonderful series of concerts. I am willing to write and document my experience at this event to pass on to you guys.

  93. Kaitlin June 18, 2015 at 8:32 am #

    This looks like such an amazing time! Plus, Elephant Revival!!! <3

  94. Jenny June 18, 2015 at 12:07 pm #

    Wowza! Looks amazing!

  95. Peter June 18, 2015 at 2:25 pm #

    That would be amazing. My wife and I have gone every year for the past few years but couldn’t afford it this year. This would make our summer!!

  96. Philip June 18, 2015 at 2:27 pm #

    The California Honeydrops are one of my all time favorite bands and I’ve never been able to see them live before! Plus I can’t afford to go to Pickathon this year :(

  110. Jason June 18, 2015 at 7:26 pm #

    Most want them for purely altruistic reasons I’m sure. Me, it’s for the pure joy of howling at the Moon.

  111. Sandra Leavens June 18, 2015 at 7:58 pm #

    Please pick me!! I grew up in Kentucky and I miss it!

  112. Free June 18, 2015 at 9:50 pm #

    ive been a big fan of pickathon for years and now I’d like to see how the other half fests!

    I have been caring for my Father who has Alzheimer’s for 4 years now 24/7 365 basically all by myself. I could really use a respite.

    Long story made really short…. I could use the break from Life.

  115. Dana G June 18, 2015 at 10:41 pm #

  116. Dana June 18, 2015 at 10:47 pm #

    ‘Cuz I need a place to hideout for the weekend…

  117. Garrett Brown June 19, 2015 at 12:04 am #

    Would love to win. Need a place to adventure to.

  118. Shawn June 19, 2015 at 8:58 am #

    This would be fantastic to attend!

  119. Jessi June 19, 2015 at 9:58 am #

    I would love to take my 3 year old to her first festival and I love bluegrass music.

  120. Rachel June 19, 2015 at 11:07 am #

    I’m here all the way from Michigan– where Greensky Bluegrass is from! I haven’t gotten much of a chance to explore, camp, and jam in Oregon yet– this would be the perfect treat!

  121. Michele June 19, 2015 at 3:01 pm #

    Please, please, please, pick me. Just because I am a nice person and full of love and a string summit virgin. Thank you.

  122. Cory June 19, 2015 at 3:07 pm #

    String me up some!

  123. Amber Lysiak June 20, 2015 at 4:05 pm #

    Don’t string me along…..Choose me! :)

  124. Chelsea June 20, 2015 at 5:15 pm #

    Missed it last year and would love a chance to go!

  125. Melinda June 20, 2015 at 5:46 pm #

    Always wanted to go, always wanted my kids to see this!

  126. Adam R. June 21, 2015 at 11:54 am #

    It would truly be an amazing experience to spread the love and energy needed and present at such a wonderful gathering. These events bring the types of people that are needed to create a good time and accepting environment, we would be so grateful to attend!

  127. peter mclean June 22, 2015 at 11:59 am #

    I would love to go. I usually volunteer, but i want a vacation this time around! Play with the Peacocks.

  128. Adrienne June 23, 2015 at 7:42 am #

    I want to go it sounds really really fun I am new to the state moved last year. Yeah!!!!!!!

  129. Mary Carson June 23, 2015 at 8:17 am #

    I would be so thrilled to see these amazing musicians perform, especially Del McCoury and David Grisman, California Honeydrops. Please pick me and turn my year into joy.

  130. Asya June 23, 2015 at 12:59 pm #

    This event is certainly at the top of my wishlist for summer! Went fishing the last time I was at Horning’s Hideout and caught nothing. I’d like to rectify that with good friends and free tickets to this concert.

  131. Christina June 23, 2015 at 2:54 pm #

    I have never been! #WISH If this is found in this sea of comments it’ll be a miracle. Haha

  132. Wendy June 23, 2015 at 6:56 pm #

    I’ve lived in Portland my whole life and have never experienced this event, what a treat to have great live music in such a beautiful location.

  133. Hailee McCants June 23, 2015 at 11:11 pm #

    What an amazing adventure to experience with some of the finest music artist.

  134. David G June 25, 2015 at 2:09 pm #

    I would take my hippie brother. He has been so depressed since he lost his job. He needs to get out of the house real bad. I know this would do it. I’m worried about him. He was a Marine and as tough as they come. Thank you.

  135. bliss June 25, 2015 at 2:32 pm #

    would love to take my family

  136. Sarah G June 25, 2015 at 2:38 pm #

    I haven’t attended in years past because the ticket are outside of my budget, but I would gladly go if I could win tickets. My physical therapist described it as “magical”.

  137. Mark June 25, 2015 at 2:44 pm #

    Whoa baby!

  138. Dana G June 25, 2015 at 2:45 pm #

    Attending this has been on my summer dream bucket list ever since I over to Oregon but I could never afford it! I would love the chance to attend this year.

  139. brad June 25, 2015 at 2:57 pm #

  140. Susannah June 25, 2015 at 5:52 pm #

    Hot dog! The String Summit, what a treat, would love to attend with my sister! Please enjoy this terrible limerick:

    We would love to head out to the hideout,
    And give our normal lives a big “time-out”
    We’ll dance like crazy,
    Make chains of daisies,
    Won’t go home ’till we wipe out

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  141. TomP June 25, 2015 at 6:43 pm #

    This is an awesome event!

  142. Melissa June 26, 2015 at 6:12 am #

    My guy and I love music and these types of experiences. This would be amazing to hear such talent. The festival takes place on his birthday and that would be an epic way to celebrate!

  143. Cory June 26, 2015 at 8:26 am #

    I wanna REACH THE Summit

  144. Anna June 26, 2015 at 10:04 am #

    I’ve never gotten the chance to go to Horning’s Hideout but all my friends tell me I would love it because I am obsessed with peacocks and they roam wild there! Add to that fabulous music and camping and I would be in heaven! thank you for the chance to win tickets that I can’t afford to buy myself!

  145. Logan June 26, 2015 at 11:50 am #

    I just want to dance!

  146. Kris Martin June 26, 2015 at 1:09 pm #

    What a great adventure, something I might not seek out, but if I stumbled upon I would make it an EPIC event.

  147. Lauryl June 26, 2015 at 10:41 pm #

    I WANT TO GO so badly!!!!!

  148. Stephanie Marie Belle June 27, 2015 at 7:13 am #

    @},~,~ Hello PDX Pipeline ~,~'{@

    Ok. So this is “THE” Annual NW String Summit of 2015t!…&.in my opinion…a total HAVETA!!,
    Every year, without fail, I randomly get caught up in a conversation about music festivals or summer campouts & NW String Summit is by many, highly recommended :) All good stuff…. if youre from the Northwest then this shin-dig is part near a right of passage. To attend at least once, to share an epic Hiornings HIdeout experience of The NW String Summit with thousands of musically enlightened guitar strummin masterminds : ). Now that I am older (36) Ive realized that too many times I have allowed marvelous opportunities of musical awesomeness, Just like this one,regretfully pass right by,..I have discovered is best when embraced & savored. I understand now, that i should practice responding more often with a “yes” , instead of answering with my usual obnoxiously narrow “no”.
    So With that, I feel that I must share that My Son is 19 and we play disc golf at Hornings HIdeout as often as possible. Been going to this venue since I was a kid, however, NEVER been to The String Summit. For the last 6 years He & I have been learning to play acoustic guitar, He is way better and advanced than I. Cool thing about raising kids is that they are more like their parents than ever realized.He shares with me the same taste & love for music, and it’d be rad to experience this “First Time” with my son.

    Thank you for your consideration : )

    Wow the kinfolk -revival tent!!

    Love the post and would love some tickets .
    Good job writer

  150. Stephanie June 27, 2015 at 11:10 am #

    I have heard wonderful things about Horning’s Hideout and a string competition? Perfect weekend!

  151. Casey June 29, 2015 at 1:09 pm #

    This would be an amazing experience! Great lineup

  152. Lily June 30, 2015 at 12:46 pm #

    If I win these tickets I would gift the other away as well as gift out cold beer to my neighbors at Hornings. Payin’ it forward and whatnot. Seriously, this would be an honor and a dream come true to win these tickets. Every little bit helps in these times! Thanks for the opportunity!

  153. Cassidy July 3, 2015 at 1:49 am #

    Have heard lots and had some friends go in 2014 I have never been to a festival like this before and I would find it to be such an amazing expierence I am very in tune with string instomemts and enjoy them a bit. I would possible be the happiest if I got to win tickets and expierence such an amazing thing. Definitely not one To take advantage.

  154. Nicole July 5, 2015 at 4:55 am #

    I would love to win these for my boyfriend. He works extremely hard every day and he absolutely lives for music. He always says he wouldn’t be able to get through his day without it. Some of his favorite bands are in this lineup and I can’t imagine the look on his face if I was able to give these tickets to him.

  155. Angela July 9, 2015 at 9:20 pm #

    I would be thrilled to go and take those that walk the walk sing the talk and jive!

  156. Perry July 12, 2015 at 9:23 pm #

    I go ever year this is so much fun!

  157. Micah Knabb April 7, 2016 at 1:36 pm #

    Really looking forward to this festival. Some of my favorite bluegrass artists in one weekend, am I’m sure lovely people

  158. Gina May 15, 2016 at 8:47 am #

    There is nothing like bluegrass in a beautiful location. I have always wanted to go to string summit!

  159. Samantha May 24, 2016 at 7:26 am #

    Winning tickets to String Summit would be a dream. I’d invite my friend who lives in Montana and it would be the sweetest gal pal reunion ever. Our friendship was initially built on a shared love for the outdoors and good music – String Summit is the perfect marriage of all things good.

  160. Good Karma May 31, 2016 at 10:13 pm #

    Spending a month in Oregon this summer to soak in the green love! My ears and soul crave some good vibes at this festival! Come on, give me a reason to extend my vacation and brag to my friends about the love and hospitality!!

  161. Chris June 21, 2016 at 9:29 am #

    Want to bring my wife and son to see some killer bluegrass

  162. Chris Cox June 23, 2019 at 10:09 am #
