Sisters Folk Festival is thrilled to announce that passes for the 2016 festival – and registration for the Americana Song Academy – will go on sale at 9am Pacific time, November 16. The festival will run September 9-11 and the Americana Song Academy September 6-9, 2016. Passes and song academy registration will be available online and through the festival office.
After four consecutive sell-out years, organizers have decided to make available 500 early-bird, all-event passes. Last year they were gone in 10 hours. Early-bird passes are priced at $115, and regular all-event passes are $140. “We see this as a great opportunity for patrons to receive discounted tickets for the festival, but you have to be ready as they sell quickly,” says Creative Director Brad Tisdel.
The Festival is coming off its 20th anniversary year, celebrating music and community-building in the beautiful town of Sisters, Oregon. With over 40 acts, 10 stages and three days of music it’s no wonder people get tickets early. A unique model where “all the towns a stage,” the Sisters Folk Festival has pioneered excellence in music education through the Americana Project and the Americana Song Academy.
The Americana Song Academy is held September 6-9 at Caldera in the Cascade mountains just outside Sisters. Several festival artists arrive four days early for an intimate music and songwriting experience that some describe as transformative. Registration for the academy is $525, which includes all instruction, camping and incredible meals. The academy sold out last year by April.
