  • Wind Hotel is playing the Observatory on Saturday, June 2.

Every year, a couple thousand people pour into downtown Spokane for VOLUME, the Inlander's music festival that started in 2010. There are hipster kids, gray-haired grandmas, music super nerds and those who just wanna enjoy the party.

For devoted music lovers, Volume presents serious problems: Too many of their favorite bands are packed into the two-night festival that they're forced to make tough decisions. No one can see 80 local and regional acts spread across nine different music venues, so detailed planning is required. This guide should help. Inside you'll find band write-ups on every act, schedules for every venue and a map in the center to help you chart your course for Volume (June 1-2).

But don't worry if you're a more casual music fan. Volume is for you, too. The principle of discovery — of exploring new music, new genres, new corners of downtown — is at the heart of the festival. So, it's OK if you don't know everything about Wild Ones, Super Sparkle, Mama Doll, All Star Opera and Jenny Don't & The Spurs. Soon, you will. In the meantime, we have a one-page beginner's guide (page 15) to get you going.

By the end of Volume, you'll be tired, exhilarated, maybe hungover and probably in love with your new favorite band.

You can thank us later.

How much are passes?

In advance, two-day wristbands are $25. If you wait until Friday, June 1, the price for a weekend pass is $35 — if they don't sell out before then; one-night-only passes will be available for $20. On Saturday, June 2, one-day passes will be sold for $20.

How do I buy a wristband now?

• ONLINE: Buy tickets at Volume.inlander.com/tickets, and pick them up at the festival. On Friday, pick up your tickets outside the Washington Cracker Building (304 W. Pacific Ave.) from 4:30 to 9 pm. On Saturday, you can pick up tickets at the same location, 4:30 to 8 pm. Don't miss those pick-up times!

• IN PERSON: You can buy Volume passes at Global Credit Union locations, Paper and Cup (in Kendall Yards) and at Resurrection Records.

I already bought my wristband...

PICK-UP AT THE FESTIVAL: On Friday, pick up your tickets outside the Washington Cracker Building (304 W. Pacific) from 4:30 to 9 pm. On Saturday, pick up tickets at the same location, 4:30 to 8 pm.

How do I get from venue to venue?

Well, use your own two feet. Or, better yet, hop a free ride on the Spokane Party Bus, which will be circulating between venues.

What if...?

... A PERFORMER I WANT TO SEE CANCELS: We will do our best to notify everyone of any schedule changes, but lineups are subject to change, at any time, without notice. All sales are final.

.... I HAVE UNDERAGE KIDS: Well, several of the venues welcome festival-goers of all ages, and kids 12 and under are free, provided they are accompanied by an adult with a festival pass.
