Slack Fest 2011
after a 2 year absence, Artist Home and Team up for Non Profits is proud to present the return of Slack Fest!
After two years of hibernation, the party of the summer has been revived by Doe Bay Fest curators Artist Home and on July 9th the man, the myth and the legend, Don Slack, will be celebrated again.
2011's Slack Fest Will be feature raucous sets from:
The American Girls
The Golden Blondes
and Jack Wilson
What started as a party at the Stanwood Hotel in 2004 has morphed into a music festival celebrating the spirit and passion Don Slack puts into every show he attends and the bands who inspire it.
One of the Pacific Northwest's most recognizable and involved music fans for decades, Don Slack also moonlights as celebrated DJ of KEXP's "Swingin' Doors." And anyone who has seen Slack in his natural habitat in the middle of a packed crowd with wife Deb by his side and a Rainier in hand knows he can put most 22-year-olds to shame.
Held on a racetrack on a slice of Silvana, Washington farmland nestled against the Stillaguamish River, Slack Fest features some of the Pacific Northwest's best bands like you've never seen them before: playing on a dirt racetrack on the back of a flatbed truck. Slack Fest offers a laid back but loud alternative to summer festivals in the city or as 2011 performers Whalebones sing, "I'm going up the country where less is more."
