Imagine a weekend of lounging in the sun, floating in the river, hanging with your friends in an affordable beer garden, followed by an evening enjoying music from Car Seat Headrest, Thao (of the Get Down Stay Down), and more in a gorgeous outdoor setting just outside of Seattle.
Back for its sixth year, Timber! Outdoor Music Festival, powered by Carter Subaru, is taking to Tolt-MacDonald park in scenic Carnation, WA for a weekend of independent music, guided outdoor adventures, floating in the Snoqualmie River, hiking around the park, playing on the beach, stargazing astronomers, an official 5k run presented by REI, secret shows, and so much more.
At the heart of Timber! is the music, especially music discovery. Every year, attendees get to discover some of their new favorite bands from Timber!’s curated lineup, which is designed to invoke an overall feeling and vibe.
Timber! opens on Thursday, July 12 with laid-back Campfire Stage performances by 45th St Brass, Sons of Rainier, Silver Torches, Sarah Gerritsen & the Shadowcatchers, and Maiah Wynne. Friday and Saturday stage headliners include Car Seat Headrest, Kyle Craft, Polyrhythmics, Naked Giants, Ruler, Industrial Revelation with the NW Tap Connection, Petunia & the Vipers, Cumulus, and more. When the main stage closes on Friday and Saturday, the Campfire Stage opens for intimate performances from Thao (of the Get Down Stay Down), Courtney Marie Andrews, and Shenandoah Davis.
While not all music festivals are the best place for kids, Timber! embraces the family-friendly spirit. In addition to capping attendance to ensure everyone has space to roam and play, Timber! has a designated camping area for families and kids 12 and under get into the festival completely free (though advanced registration is required). Plus, Friday and Saturday will feature entertainment just for kids in Camp Timber! Presented by Whole Foods Market and the King County Library System. Kids can enjoy performances by Recess Monkey and Harmonica Pocket, as well as arts, crafts, science experiments, and fun. Not to mention evening s’mores with REI on Friday and Saturday.
Timber! will also provide great food for guests. The food court, presented by Uber Eats, will be stocked with the likes of Athena’s Food Truck, Dumpling Tzar, The Frankfurter, Woodshop BBQ, Snoqualmie Ice Cream, Coalesce Juicery & Whole Foods Kitchen, coffee from Caffe Vita, and the Timber! Cafe, which will be serving up everything from breakfast burritos to sandwiches.
