What do you get when you put together dozens of local talents, three days, camping, and a thousand or so amazing people to get to know? You get the Lazers Art & Music Project, or as it’s more affectionately called, LAMP. On August 8th-10th, local companies ElectriSea Events, Trapped Productions, and Get Active Entertainment are bringing you this amazing opportunity to get down in the outdoors with tons of your local favorites. You’re wondering right now how much you’re going to have to pay, right? Well, here’s a fantastic surprise. This is a free outdoor summer music festival event. Yes, free.
LAMP started out last year as the event ‘Lazers @ the Lake’ on a much smaller scale. The idea in mind is to bring the local music scene together with an outdoor festival feel all while staying fairly close to home. Designed especially with newer DJ’s in mind, its purpose is to give them exposure to playing for larger crowds. This year, while sticking to those same themes, the event has nearly quintupled in expected attendance.
This year, this truly unique summer music festival has outdone themselves. Just outside of Tenino, Washington, there will be amazing local talents such as Bassrock, Instant Party, Storm & Trooper, and Power Up to melt your ears. On top of that, there’s also going to be visual arts represented in the form of canvas painters, art car installations, and a graffiti wall. It is always a great thing to see locals working together and this event promises to be extraordinary. It’s even more meaningful when they choose to work with a local food bank to help make a difference in the community. While this event is free, there is a parking fee: A $45 flat rate for RV’s, and $25 for cars. However, if you bring four cans of food to donate, they’ll take five dollars off of your parking fee for cars. Parking passes will be available for presale.
Overall, there really isn’t a reason not to go to this awesome event so mark it on your calendars! While you’re at it, take a look at our list of the must see Northwest festivals this year.
