Located only 90 minutes from Seattle and Bellingham, Summer Meltdown Festival is an annual tradition for thousands of music lovers and adventure seekers. With a lineup that keeps topping itself, a vendor village for food and crafts, expansive shaded campgrounds, a river for swimming and sun basking, a yoga tent to warm up your dancing muscles, a beer garden, kids’ village, workshops, regional art, and so much more, Meltdown invites all to join us where the music meets the mountain.
Based in Conway, WA, producer Josh Clauson has carried the Meltdown torch since 2000, when the event was a backyard party that came with a keg. Every Meltdown Pass includes complimentary on site camping under shady pines or in mountain-view meadows, as well as unlimited access to all performances.
