Sisters Folk Festival is opening ticket sales for the 2017 festival at 9am Pacific Time on Thursday, December 1. The festival dates are September 8-10, 2017.
Once again, 500 tickets for a three-day weekend pass will be made available at a discounted price of $125. Patrons are limited to 4 discounted tickets per purchase. When the early-bird tickets are gone, there will be plenty of full-price tickets available at $150. Organizers want to remind patrons that last year early bird tickets sold out in less than 5 minutes, but full-price passes didn’t sell out until June. Once the discounted tickets are gone, full-price tickets will be immediately available.
“Early-bird ticket pricing is one way we can help those who can’t afford a full-price ticket to experience the festival. But you have to be ready — they sold out very quickly last year and we expect that will probably happen again,” says Managing Director Ann Richardson.
Tickets will be available for purchase online at www.sistersfolkfestival.org/tickets starting at 9am. There will be no phone sales.
The 22nd annual festival will feature over 40 acts, 11 stages and 3 days of world-class music. “All the town’s a stage” is not just a tagline, it’s a reality for three magical days.
The festival is organized by the non-profit Sisters Folk Festival, Inc. (SFF). SFF not only produces a world-class festival, the organization has also pioneered excellence in music education through the acclaimed Americana Project, Americana Song Academy and Song Academy for Youth.
Registration will also open December 1 for the Americana Song Academy, September 5 – 8, 2017. The academy is held at Caldera, an arts camp located in the Cascade mountains just outside Sisters. Select festival artists arrive four days early for an intimate music and songwriting experience that has been described as transformative. Catie Curtis, touring professional singer-songwriter said of her experience, “The Americana Song Academy brought me back to life, artistically. It rekindled the fire I had been looking for for a long time.”
