String Summit event promoter Skye McDonald comments about the forthcoming festival, “This year is our 15th Anniversary and we’re pulling out all the stops! The Northwest String Summit at Horning’s Hideout is such a special festival destination that we’re inviting out all our friends and core bands for the party! Many for multiple days as to properly soak it all up, and in turn, give us more magnificent musical magic morning, noon and night! The addition of the Kinfolk Revival Tent was an enormous hit and will be coming back to give even more programming from movies and documentaries, to daytime artist workshops, to late night sets with our favorite bands! Cascadia will be ramping up the programming offerings as well providing music from 8AM until 3PM Friday thru Sunday and late night after Main Stage Thurs thru Saturday. In such a lovely and cozy nook of the woods, the sets here have proven to be some of the most memorable of the weekend.
At NWSS, it is evident that family is paramount; from our family-friendly environment, to our extended musical family that makes the yearly reunion of friends and neighbors such the very positive experience that is has become. We love the kiddos at NWSS and we are making arrangements to enhance their stay (and yours) so much more this year. Look for announcements on what activity additions your youngin’ can expect this summer. Be on the lookout for more artistic and interactive installations in the works for this year thanks to our awesome art teams in Tyler Fuqua Creations, Ghost Stag, Vestiks among others! So much to going on we cannot wait for July and our 15th Anniversary!
