Summer Meltdown lineup announced

Are you ready for the 2013 Summer Meltdown Festival? The lineup was recently announced and it is a pretty serious sign that things are just going to keep getting bigger and better for this festival in Darrington.

Some of my personal favorites on the lineup are Minus The Bear, Geographer, Cave Singers, Odesza, Learning Team and Pepper Proud. If you are keeping score you might have noticed the lineup is heavy with amazing local artists and that couldn’t make me happier.

The festival will take place from Aug. 9–11 at the Whitehorse Mountain Amphitheater. Tickets are on sale now with several different ticket options for people of all ages. There is a video and list of the full lineup below. Get your sunscreen ready. This is going to be fun.
