Gem & Jam are bridging their unique crossover festival to the Pacific Northwest this fall. Specifically on the autumnal equinox as Cascade Equinox Festival takes over the Deschutes County Fairgrounds in Oregon September 22-24. The lineup features over 50 different acts ranging from jam, electronic, funk, soul, and bluegrass. However, if you’re reading this website, there’s only one act that matters. Pretty Lights is headlining his first festival after just announcing his return to touring after six years since he last released music.
The rest of the lineup is also stacked! The other topline headliner is venerable jam band Goose. Big Wild and Phantogram will also be bringing their indie-influenced live acts to Cascade Equinox. Of the Trees, Christian Martin and LP Giobbi help round out the dance portion of the lineup.
Of course, Cascade Equinox is going to be about so much more than just music. Obviously, there will be camping. As well, there will be art, food, beer and wine tasting, carnival rides, yoga, and much more. Tickets for the festival are still available, there are myriad camping options including renting your camp gear. If you want to splurge there’s also glamping (you can stay in a yurt!). Check out the trailer below to see what Cascade Equinox Festival has in store for its inaugural edition.
