Doe Bay Fest 2011 Ticket Date Announced

Last year the Doe Bay Fest sold out in less than ten days. This year there is little doubt that the 800 tickets to the Orcas Island festival will go even faster.

So, while Jonathan Zwickel was reporting on the insurgent group of musicians, promoters, writers, photographers and slip-n-slide builders that is at the heart of Doe Bay Fest – and at least partially responsible for the popularity of half of the top ten bands in City Arts’ first annual Best New Band Poll – one of our biggest questions was, “When are those tickets going on sale?”

The answer, which organizers let us announce in the story: Tickets to the 2011 Doe Bay Fest on Orcas Island will go on sale May 1.

But there’s a catch: Those lucky ticket buyers will have to wait a month, until June 2, to hear the full lineup for the festival, which is set to take place August 11-14.

Until then you can only follow the fest on Facebook and Twitter for more details on how to get your tickets and wonder who will be there. Chances are a few of the bands featured in this month’s issue will be there. Maybe you should read it.
