Summer Meltdown grows up
Summer Meltdown, which started modestly 13 years ago as a hippie jam-band spree,
has slowly evolved into a major outdoor festival. With tent camping folded into
the price of admission, the woodsy vibe is a far cry from the Gorge parking lot.
This year the lineup includes Minus the Bear, Lotus, The Cave Singers, Ivan
Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Led to Sea, Beat Happening and many, many others. Gates open at 3 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m. Friday-next Sunday, Aug. 11 at Whitehorse Mountain Amphitheater, Arlington, Snohomish County; day passes $30-$65, weekend pass $150 (206-405-4200 or www.summermeltdown.com).
