Pirate Party Festival: An Adventure For Your Sexy Inner Swashbuckler

The Pirate Party is back in 2017 for another unforgettable weekend of music, art, camping, dancing, and workshops. Strap on your peg leg and hold on to your tricorn hat, because this years’ line up is stacked. This year the festival Emancipator Ensemble is headlining, the full live band project of Portland-based producer Emancipator, known for his unique strain of electronic music. Over eight years the festival has grown to be one of the most anticipated events of the summer; this is clearly evidenced in the huge number of well-known acts that are on the lineup.

We can hardly wait to see the likes of Buku, Christian Martin, Desert Dwellers, Eprom, Mt. Eden, and The Widdler, all over one packed summer weekend. All the basses will be certainly covered, and you can definitely expect to be introduced to a variety of local and international unfamiliar talent.

The design of the DomeVizion installments reminds us of the Montréal Biosphère, designed by Buckminster Fuller (cred: DomeVizion)

Domevizion‘s contribution is one element we are perhaps most excited for. Their one-of-a-kind pieces feature projected 360 degree visuals, dazzling LED lighting, interesting and comfy furnishings, sacred geometric stage design, inflatable LED lighted installations, and much more. You may recognize their stages from HeadyWorks (another Pirate Party collaborative entity) shows. Their dome was booked at four different festivals last season, spanning across three states.

We will be attending Pirate Party for the first time this year and our expectations are high. The delicious combination of visual and audio art is something that we can’t get enough of at festivals. We’re sure Pirate Party will deliver and go beyond our expectations. We imagine it will  be incredibly difficult to get around to seeing everything,  just because of the sheer number of fantastic offerings at this years’ festival.
