Two of our staff are headed off to Portland for the Project Pabst Festival, which will feature Main Stage performances until the early evening on Saturday and Sunday, as well as “late night” performances at venues throughout the city. Tears for Fears will headline tomorrow and Modest Mouse will headline Sunday. To help them create the ideal multi-faceted festival experience Portland deserves, Pabst brought in Superfly, the renowned producers of such culture-defining events as Bonnaroo and Outside Lands.
Project Pabst is an innovative celebration of Pabst and the city of Portland, OR, featuring a main festival and night shows comprised of music, entertainment, food and drink. The festival takes place on two stages over 10 acres in the restored Zidell Yards in the heart of the South Waterfront District. The Violent Femmes, GZA and Rocket From the Crypt are among the many other artists who will perform. Fans must be over 21 to attend.
In all, more than 30 bands will perform. Their exclusive weekend VIP tickets did sell out. However, single day passes are still available for Saturday here, Sunday here, or both days here. Unless you were lucky to purchase the VIP tickets, the “late night” events do require separate tickets, so be sure to check their website for additional fees.
One dollar from every festival ticket sold will go to help the Jeremy Wilson Foundation, dedicated to providing financial assistance in times of medical crisis and to improving the overall well-being of individual musicians and their families.
Stay tuned next week for our review & slide show!
