Requests for This Year's Festival

How It Works:

Got a favorite Portland band you've never seen live? Know about a secret gem of an artist who deserves to play? We want to hear about it. All you've got to do is type the name of the band you want to see into the box below and boom you're off! Have more than one band you'd like to see play? Lather, rinse, and repeat!

While we obviously can't promise to get every band you request, your input will help us get a better sense of what's going on in Portland music in 2009. This festival is, after all, for you. And this is your chance to help make it better!

More questions? We've got answers! Want to get in touch? Email us!
