Festival owner and producer Jason Lajeunesse shared, “This year I feel personally connected to the line up more than ever. I have history with many of the top tier acts dating back to their very first shows in the Pacific Northwest, so it’s exciting to see them circle back years later headlining our festival. We made a concerted effort to book bands we felt best exemplified the spirit and history of the festival, putting an emphasis on indie rock and punk bands alongside genres like hip-hop and EDM. We booked the acts we’d want to see and, as a result, the artists we chose reflect the energy and heart of this music festival and neighborhood.”

Three days. Five stages. One excellent festival. Discounted three-day passes are on sale now for $99 through April 2; for $125 between April 3 and July 4; and for $150 beginning July 5. VIP tickets will also be available for $250 and will include limited edition apparel, access to the outdoor VIP beer garden with hosted snacks and beverages, a CHBP poster, and gifts from the festival sponsors. The full musical lineup and single day pass prices and availability will be announced in early June, so stay tuned.
