It looks like this summer will see the Gorge once again hosting multiple music festivals.
Live Nation recently announced via Twitter that the venue will be the site of the Jam Base Live festival. Nothing is known about the event except for that it is happening July 5-6 and that it is a new festival being put together by the online live music hub JamBase.
Here’s more information about the event from the JamBase website:
The JamBase Live lineup is nearly complete, and the roster of bands that have already confirmed are incredibly excited to play The Gorge. Roughly a dozen acts have been slated to perform on the main stage, and for half of these acts this is the first time that they will appear on what many would agree is the world’s most majestic stage. Several of the repeat performers will return to play The Gorge after as long as a decade. JamBase has selected a lineup that we are confident will blow your mind (featuring a price tag unheard of for an event of this size)!
Jam Base Live will be the fourth music fest to be held at the Gorge this year. The 12th annual Sasquatch! (May 24-27), Paradiso (June 28-29) and Watershed (Aug. 2-4), which are both in their second years, are the other three festivals. I’ve reached out to Live Nation for more details about JamBase Live and will post more information when it is available.by
