"For over a decade, JamBase has been a prime resource for all things live music. For years we have wanted to take the online experience offline and make it unforgettable. A partnership with Live Nation and The Gorge has given us the perfect opportunity to do exactly that. Between our lineup and one of the most beautiful venues in the world, I am certain that this festival will blow people's minds," said Casey Shafer, Director of Marketing at JamBase.
Located in the high desert of Central Washington State, The Gorge Amphitheatre provides a picturesque backdrop for another magical gathering to accompany the award winning venue's Sasquatch!, Paradiso and Watershed Festivals.
"Over the last decade, we've transitioned The Gorge from not just a picturesque amphitheatre but also a world-class festival destination. We set out this year to create a unique event that expands on the success of our Sasquatch!, Paradiso and Watershed festivals. JamBase has proven to be a great cyber gathering place for like minded music fans. We wanted to tap into that trust that JamBase has cultivated with their followers and together create a truly unique musical gathering. We couldn't be more thrilled with what we've come up with together," said Jeff Trisler, longtime promoter of The Gorge concert series.
The Gorge Amphitheatre is undoubtedly one of the most scenic concert venues in the world and offers sweeping views of the Columbia River. JamBase Live will feature a limited capacity of 25,000 and will offer lawn terrace seating along with general & premiere camping options. The amphitheatre has been the home of many historic concerts with iconic artists such as Pearl Jam, The Dave Matthews Band, The Dead, Bob Dylan, Phish, John Mayer, Van Morrison, The Police, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmy Buffett, Prince, and Fleetwood Mac, as well as, The HORDE Festival, Lilith Fair and Lollapalooza.
The first Gorge festival of 2013, Sasquatch! sold out in 90 minutes when tickets went on sale last month.
