FEST: Eastbound Throwdown Reveals Full Line-Up of Bands


Eastbound Jesus have announced the full line-up of bands for their annual Eastbound Throwdown festival, which is slated to take over Irwin Farm in Salem on Friday & Saturday, September 7 & 8.

Recently added to the festival schedule are headliner Kitchen Dwellers (a four-piece bluegrass band from Montana) and Pappy & the Pards (featuring Pappy Biondo of Cabinet).

This will be the festival’s third year at Irwin Farm. With local vendors, two stages built by the band themselves, and friends and family as volunteers to staff the event, it is truly a grassroots festival with a hometown feel. The family-friendly, all-ages fest features two days of music with two nights of camping.

Advance weekend passes are now available for $60; $70 at the gate. Saturday-only passes will be available for $40. Camping is included in the ticket price.
