The ‘80s were neon and big hair; then the styles changed and the music changed with it. Flannel and long hair came into play and the world saw the rise of bands like Alice in Chains and Stone Temple Pilots. But along with the Seattle scene, there was a plethora of bands that broke style molds like the fuzz guitar of Filter, the poppy hooks of Soul Asylum, Sponge, Everclear, and many more.

The event will feature some of the era’s top bands, tons of delicious food trucks, craft beer, full bar, and lots of retail vendors for shopping.
