The Lo Fi Festival Vision: A 24 hour exploration of installation, performance, and interaction with the Farm which seeks to seed the Farm with narrative and inquiry about place and our use of landscape, providing an unusual opportunity for artists to work in expansive ways within a specific site.

The Smoke Farm Venue: As the Farm is invested in conservation and habitat restoration as part of its mission, a lo-tech or no-tech, “pack-it-in, pack-it-out” ethos is central to our approach. Smoke Farm is a 360-acre former dairy farm in a serene river valley located in Arlington, WA and focuses on supporting art, science, and philosophy through creative engagement and community work as a project of the Rubicon Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization.

Food: We will have several food trucks, local produce and some culinary guest stars for the festival, so please bring cash! We will also provide grills and charcoal for those who wish to cook their own food.

Tickets: Tickets will go on sale on August 4, 2014. Gates open at 12pm on Saturday, September 6th, 2014. Tickets are available online at Stranger Tickets or at the gate, provided that tickets are still available on the day of the event.
