GEORGE, Washington (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Live Nation is teaming up with JamBase to launch a brand new music festival, Jambase Live, which will take place from July 5 & 6 at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington state.
Artists confirmed for the two-day camping festival include: Robert Plant & Sensational Space Shifters, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Slightly Stoopid, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, G. Love & Special Sauce, STS9, Galactic, Railroad Earth, Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers, Lettuce, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers and ALO, along with a local stage featuring regional acts.
The Gorge is becoming a go-to spot for Live Nation, and hosts a number of other festivals, including the Watershed country music festival and the Sasquatch! music festival, which, according to the company, sold out in 90 minutes after going on sale last month.
"Over the last decade, we've transitioned The Gorge from not just a picturesque amphitheatre but also a world-class festival destination. We set out this year to create a unique event that expands on the success of our Sasquatch!, Paradiso and Watershed festivals. JamBase has proven to be a great cyber gathering place for like minded music fans. We wanted to tap into that trust that JamBase has cultivated with their followers and together create a truly unique musical gathering. We couldn't be more thrilled with what we've come up with together," said Jeff Trisler, longtime promoter of The Gorge concert series. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
