The 18th Annual Northwest String Summit (String Summit) is one of the top boutique live music experiences in the country and presents today’s leaders in the Americana, Bluegrass, Indy Rock, and Jam genres. It all happens at the iconic Horning’s Hideout (North Plains, OR) from July 18 – 21, 2019. Located just 20 miles outside of Portland, OR, Horning’s Hideout, a private family-owned reserve of old-growth trees, wild peacocks, ponds, and campsites, is among the West’s most awe-inspiring festival sites in the country. A family-friendly and locally sourced festival, String Summit caps its capacity at 5,000 attendees to ensure an intimate festival weekend for all concertgoers at an incredible ticket price.

String Summit event promoter Skye McDonald comments about String Summit 2019, “Horning’s Hideout is such a special festival destination that we’re thrilled to invite all our friends and many core bands for the party year after year. Several will perform on multiple days so they too can properly experience the vibe and, in turn, deliver more magnificent music magic morning, noon and night!”
While the Main Stage Amphitheater will be at full tilt, the Kinfolk Revival Stage returns with daytime artist workshops and late-night sets. The Cascadia Stage, set deep in a wooded hollow, will ramp up to provide music all day Friday – Sunday, and late-night sets after Main Stage acts from Thursday – Saturday.
Northwest String Summit partners with singular Portland organizations, food vendors and emerging Pacific Northwest-based musicians to support the thriving local communities. String Summit exudes fun and activities for the whole family seen by some as the yearly grounds for reunions among close friends and neighbors. Several onsite enhancements are in store to make festivalgoers’ experiences that much better — with or without their kiddos. The “Not For Kid’s Only” Family Area provides a festival within the festival; daily kid-centric workshops, arts & crafts, and music make this place fun for all ages! There are a multitude of offerings for the mind, body and soul with several daily yoga and meditation sessions to help keep you in optimum spirits and the body limber for dancing the night away. Additionally, more artistic and interactive installations are in the works for the 18th Annual event thanks to the exceptional art teams of Tyler Fuqua Creations, Ghost Stag, among others!
