It’s not too early to start planning where you’re going to sit; Gleason Fest is just one month away.

The festival, now in its seventh year, brings Blind Pilot, Joseph, Deep Sea Divers, Shook Twins and Electric Son to the Lilac Bowl Amphitheater at Riverfront Park on Aug. 11.

Gleason Fest, presented by Dutch Bros. Coffee and the Love Abounds Foundation, was inspired by Spokane native Steve Gleason, who will be in attendance, and benefits the Gleason Initiative Foundation’s mission to help those with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

Tickets are $27.50 in advance, $30 at the gate or $70 for VIP access. Children 13 and under are free. Tickets are available through TicketsWest.

The Full Sail Brewing & Kyla Kombucha Beer Garden will be open for those 21 and older, and there will also be several food trucks, a photobooth and kids area at the event. Free parking is available at WSU Spokane.
