The 4 Peaks Music Festival, held June 21-24 at Bend’s Stevenson Ranch has announced their initial lineup for the 2018 festival. This year’s lineup features an eclectic mix of national, regional, and local bands. Headlining the 4-day event are Michigan jamgrass favorites Greensky Bluegrass and world music collective Nahko and Medicine for the People. In addition, 4 Peaks is bringing back the hugely popular Silent Disco, morning yoga, and family fun in Kidlandia.

Also included in the initial lineup are first-time appearances by North Mississippi Allstars, New Mastersounds, and Particle. 4 Peaks is excited to welcome back perennial favorites Poor Man’s Whiskey, and the return of The Brothers Comatose and The Mother Hips. Rounding out the lineup are first-time appearances by IBMA Guitarist of the Year Molly Tuttle, The Scott Pemberton Band, Cascade Crescendo, Yak Attack, and Mojo Green.

Maintaining their connection with Central Oregon, 4 Peaks has also named the local bands set to perform at this year’s event. Latin-dance-rock outfit ¡Chiringa!, Americana-folk-jam band Travis Ehrenstrom Band, High Desert Bluegrass band Blackstrap Bluegrass, and B-3 phenom Maxwell Friedman Group will all represent Bend.
