Elkfest is the festival at the end. There's Sasquatch! at the Gorge over Memorial Day Weekend, Volume (lineup just announced Friday) running June 3-4 and then Elkfest, Browne's Addition's big summer block party, June 10-12. Today, event promoters announced the full lineup, and, like we've all come to expect, it's full of a bunch of up and coming national, regional and local acts.
Headliners this year include Los Angeles-based reggae act the Expanders, who are on tour with Tribal Seeds and Rebelution, the Sub Pop band Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires, who have toured with fellow Alabama act the Alabama Shakes and, of course, Seattle's own soul act Down North, one of the hardest working bands in the Pacific Northwest, who also have great love for Spokane. The rest of the list is stellar as well.
Elkfest 2015 full lineup is as follows:
LEE BAINS III & THE GLORY FIRES
THE RUSTY CLEAVERS
THE HOLY BROKE
FRIENDS OF MINE
As always, Elkfest is free and all-ages, although the beer gardens are 21+. It doesn't get better than that.
