What started as a party at the Stanwood Hotel in 2004 has morphed into a party and concert 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 at the Slime Dog Race Track in Stanwood, Washington 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.
This year's lineup includes:
THE MOONDOGGIES THE COMETTES COUNTRY LIPS THE FIXERS (Humble Pie Tribute Band) THE VALLEY DUDE YORK BIGFOOT WALLACE AND HIS WICKED SONS KEATON COLLECTIVE
Only for patrons 21+ (this isn't for the kiddies this time around) * Under 21 guests are welcome in the camp area but will only be able to view the concert outside of the race track area. Sorry, no dogs will be allowed at Slack Fest.
NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL ALLOWED ON PROPERTY. There will be beer for sale at very reasonable Slack Fest prices.
