Timber! is a new outdoor music festival coming this summer to Tolt-MacDonald Park in Carnation.

Planned for July 26 to 27, Helio Sequence, Fruit Bats, Lemolo, Bryan John Appleby, Kithkin, River Giant and Ten-Speed Music are the first artists announced for Timber! They are about a third of the performers who will be booked for the festival, but the lineup should give a taste of the festival’s vision and the vision of the producers, Artist Home.

Known as co-organizers of the Doe Bay Festival and producers of the popular Slack Fest and Artist Home Summer Bonfire Series, and heralded as “innovators in art” by City Arts Magazine, Artist Home organizers have always worked to integrate unique natural settings into the musical experience in innovative ways. To present Timber, Artist Home is partnering with King County Parks to set the festival in the rural splendor of Carnation. With the setting of a densely forested 574-acre park situated at the confluence of two rivers, the event moves their vision deep into the woods. With Timber, says Kevin Sur of Artist Home, “We want it to be like a big neighborhood campout.”
