Timber! Outdoor Music Festival is more than a long lineup of bands. Timber! is an experience that could only happen in the Pacific Northwest. It's a festival that brings the audience outdoors, wrapping them in the lush forests and rivers of our home. Attendees at Timber! will do much more than listen to music. They'll hike, camp, swim, bike, run, kayak, and even stargaze on the sprawling grounds of King County's Tolt MacDonald Park (40 min from downtown Seattle). Each stage is nestled in its own grove, and as the music rings out they'll be able to soak up the sunshine, snuggle under the stars, or enjoy some family time with our family activities. Timber! Outdoor Music Festival is an innovative new model for music and community. This is something different, a way to rethink how we can enjoy music together.
Timber! Outdoor Music Festival 2014 in Carnation will take place in the rural splendor of Carnation, Washington, the result of a partnership with King County Parks. With the setting of a densely forested 574-acre park situated at the confluence of two rivers, Timber! is essentially a big neighborhood campout in the woods. Folks come from all over to camp under the stars, swim in the river, and lay out in the sun enjoying music from two primary stages. Ticketholders enter Timber! via a long suspension bridge, and during the day, the Mainstage rings out in a large sunny meadow. At night, the Campfire Stage, nestled among a tall forest of fir trees, becomes a sanctuary for serious listening. Timber! has a wide variety of options available for camping on site and food and beverages available throughout, plus a select range of merchandise vendors.
