Everett’s Fisherman’s Village Music Festival is back in its usual springtime slot this year, and since it’s the fest-runner Everett Music Initiative’s tenth anniversary, it promises to be a banger. Headliners include Digable Planets, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, Deep Sea Diver, Death Valley Girls, and Big Business among others, along with a strong Seattle-based showing. King County acts Tilson XOXO, Biblioteka, Beverly Crusher, and Tres Leches will play alongside a smattering of Snohomish County outfits such as Bad Optics, I Will Keep Your Ghost, and The No Counts. The lineup is very diverse and ought to satisfy varied music tastes, ranging from hard hitting punk to country to hip hop and even to tribute acts. But wait, there’s more!
The fest will happen in downtown Everett, just as it did last fall. It’s a great location that affords access to great eateries and a small town on the water vibe that can’t be beat. Adding to the fun is the perennially popular Everett Makers Market Night Market, a veritable shopaholic’s dream of local handmade goods and goodies to peruse and purchase. The footprint of the fest includes both indoor and outdoor stages, so you can take your pick of seeing a band in an intimate venue or out amongst a starry sky and city lights. The vibe is family friendly, chill yet fun. Masks will be coming off and people will be ready to party, according to EMI founder Ryan Crowther. “As we rode the wave of these last two years, our community’s interest in live music and events hasn’t waned, and it’s encouraged us to continue creating these opportunities to see and feel music. We’ve truly never been more anxious and excited for an event, and we’re already fielding a lot of excitement from folks itching to get out.”
