Volume 2015 Inlander Music Festival: Everything you need to know, and suggested lineups for every musical taste

click to enlarge music1-1.jpg

It doesn't matter if you're collecting Social Security or if you just got your braces off — Volume is the Inlander's music festival for all. And it just keeps getting bigger: nine stages, more than 90 bands, rock movies, wristbands that get you special discounts and more. As festival veterans know, there certainly aren't enough hours in the day when it comes to Volume, so let us be your guide. Read about all the touring acts, plus 2015's local Bands to Watch. Also, check out the specially curated lineups. Say you miss the '90s, or maybe you want to dance? We have just the itinerary for you. Then: Turn it up to 11!


CHOOSING THE LOCAL BANDS TO WATCH

Determining the Inlander Bands to Watch is no easy task. Thankfully, no one has to choose alone. Every year, a committee made up of local music supporters holes up in a room and discusses/gets super-passionate about a lot of bands/solo musicians.

This year's committee members pulled from past Bands to Watch, local radio personnel and scene enthusiasts and included Gawain Fadeley, Christopher Sceaga, Matt Loi, Aaron Bocook and myself. We're proud of this year's batch of Bands to Watch, determined only after a four-hour-long final meeting last month. Read about our selections in the guide and make sure to catch them at the festival.


OFFICIAL CHARITY

This year, the Inlander selected the Spokane Humane Society as its designated charity and will donate a portion of proceeds from Volume to the organization. The Spokane Humane Society is a 501c3 nonprofit local public charity dedicated to the welfare of companion animals. Since 1897, the Society has acted as a refuge for animals in peril by providing care shelter and placement for tens of thousands of lost, neglected and unwanted animals in the greater Spokane area.
