Earlier, KEXP spotlighted the music documentary Welcome to Doe Bay as part of our SIFF “Face The Music” series previews and now, we’re happy to report that this Wednesday, June 13th, KEXP DJ Hannah Levin is hosting the Doe Bay Fest 2012 Lineup Announcement Party at the Tractor Tavern in Ballard from 8pm to 1am.
Taking place in Washington’s beautiful Orcas Island, Doe Bay Fest is a rare opportunity to camp and see some of the best performers the Pacific NW has to offer; artists such as The Head and the Heart, Damien Jurado, Champagne Champagne, and Pickwick have graced the camping grounds in recent years.
The Announcement Party, which is said to feature performances by some this year’s artists, is free to all Doe Bay ticket buyers who arrive betwen 8-9pm -- but for those who weren’t able to get tickets, the Tractor will graciously open its doors to all patrons at 9pm if there is space still available.
For more information on the Doe Bay Fest 5 Announcement Party as well as the Doe Bay Festival itself, including links, photos, and other related content, please consult either their Facebook page or official website. In the meantime, please check out The Head and The Heart’s 9 minute set as part of the Doe Bay Sessions:
