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
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
