VanFest Five


Royal Arch Park Out of Town
Sat., Aug. 15, 12 p.m. 2015 All Ages

$20/$10 for students

Now in its fifth year, VanFest Five was started by curator and fest namesake Van Wolfe while he was still attending high school. His goal? To gather his favorite local musicians to benefit the Maple Valley food bank—and young, impressionable minds. This year Wolfe has assembled a diverse lineup of promising local artists, ranging in style from singer/songwriter to hiphop to #grunge2 and post-rock. Some of the unmissable acts include Olympia-based swamp-grunge punks Naomi Punk, whose stylishly haggard, deconstructed fuzz riffs recently earned them a spot on Captured Tracks’ roster; Gifted Gab, a rising hiphop diva promising the chillest of party vibes and free-flowing sass; emotionally muscular math-rock trio Chung Antique; Kelso's own country-fried indie-poppers SEACATS; and Heavy Petting's spacious, emo-infused post-metal.
