Fans can prepare for the triumphant return of ‘Summer Jams’, the second annual concert series of Cascade Equinox, in collaboration with the esteemed 4 Peaks Music Festival, Kraft Bar, and LOGE Camps. Taking place in Bend, Oregon, this series brings vibrant local concert experiences, showcasing live performances by exceptionally talented local and regional musical acts. They will offer a wide array of local food vendors and artisans, including hand-crafted cocktails, local brews, wines, and ciders. Each event will feature an exclusive opportunity to secure fee-free tickets for Cascade Equinox.

In a show of unity with its community, Cascade Equinox is teaming up with the Pacific Northwest's renowned Summer Meltdown Festival, in an exciting grassroots collaboration known as the 'Melty Migration.' Following a hiatus in 2023 to secure a new venue, both festivals have decided to join forces to create an even more spectacular experience. The 'Melty Migration' will feature two Meltdown stage takeovers - one for the Thursday night Pre-Funk Party and another on the Harvest stage, showcasing some of Summer Meltdown’s most cherished acts. Their loyal fanbase have the chance to camp together in a dedicated premium campground, and the first 500 Melters to get on board will get complimentary early access on Thursday to enjoy the Pre-Funk Party.
