The Bartlett has been open for less than a year, but already the all-ages venue is leaving its stamp on the local music scene. Last week, the venue announced via its Facebook page its own music festival, called Bartfest, which will occur Sept. 5 to 7.
The goal of the festival is, according to the event website, to showcase “local, regional and national talent,” and the lineup currently boasts Spokane acts Marshall McLean, Dead Serious Lovers and Water Monster. Headliners (not local) include Hundred Waters, Robert DeLong and Seattle’s Pickwick.
The three-day festival will take place at two separate venues – the Bartlett, 228 W. Sprague Ave., which is all ages, and its their next-door neighbors nYne Bar and Bistro, which is 21 and older.
Full festival passes are currently on sale for $90; single day tickets are not yet available. Click here to purchase tickets and to view a partial festival lineup.
