Finally! A reason to go to Spokane! This weekend, September 5th through 7th, launches the First Annual Bartfest, a music festival organized by a new all-ages venue in the small Washington town, The Bartlett. Together, with Nyne Bar located next door, they’ll host a three-day indoor festival smack-dab in the middle of downtown Spokane on West Sprague Avenue.
For a first-time festival, Bartfest already boasts a strong line-up of both national and local acts. Thirty-three bands span the weekend, including KEXP faves No Age, Hundred Waters, Bear in Heaven, Glasser, Pickwick, Telekinesis, Beat Connection, Blouse, La Luz, Pillar Point, Shelby Earl, and many more.
In between bands, be sure to check out the Bartfest Poster Show, on display at both venues. Local graphic designers, artists, and illustrators were paired with each band to create an original poster. Proceeds from print sales benefit the Spokane chapter of The Songs for Kids Foundation.
Weekend Passes, Day Passes and Venue Passes are available for purchase in person at The Bartlett and online at bartfest.com.
