Huichica Music Festival debuts in Walla Walla this fall, extending its boutique ‘farm to table’ approach to the American music scene in the bucolic Walla Walla Valley. Presented in partnership between Sonoma’s Bundschu Company, (((folkYEAH!))), and Sleight of Hand Cellars, the two-day all-ages festival will feature live music, high-quality wines, craft beers, and locally-sourced food from the region’s finest purveyors.
The inaugural Huichica Walla Walla lineup will feature established and up-and-coming indie and folk artists, presented amidst bountiful rolling hills in the heart of Walla Walla wine country. Festival-goers can camp on-site or opt to ‘glamp’ in luxury tents provided by Shelter Co. The newly announced lineup includes:
Yo La Tengo (performing two sets)
Robyn Hitchcock (performing two sets)
Fruit Bats (solo, performing two sets)
The Minus 5
“I knew it when I saw it,” explains Huichica Co-founder and President of Bundschu Company, Jeff Bundschu. “The inspiring natural environment of the Walla Walla Valley, the caliber of the wine and food culture, and the laid back and open attitude of the people — all were right in line with the ethos that we've built our Huichica festival on for the past ten years. Expanding our bi-coastal music festival to the region will be a natural fit, and we're excited to bring people together around trendsetting music, food, and wine in more beautiful rural settings.”
Wines from Gundlach Bundschu, Sleight of Hand, Echo Echo, Underground Wine Project, and the Walla Walla Community College Viticultural Department will be available for purchase, in addition to craft beers and farm-to-table fare from the region’s finest purveyors. Provisions and activities from lifestyle and outdoor partners will also be available.
