Kind Words

We love what we do, and we’re always excited to hear that our attendees had a blast. Here’s a short roundup of some of the nice things people have said about us.

Since it began, Timber’s ambition has not been to bowl you over with name-brand headliners, omnipresent corporate sponsors or arena-sized stage production. Instead it aims to provide an accessible, easygoing experience by putting music and nature side by side and letting human curiosity do the rest. This is Zen and the Art of Music Festing: Clear away distraction to reveal the latent joy at the intersection of good music and the great outdoors.

-Jonathan Zwickel, “Timber Achieves Apotheosis,” City Arts Magazine

Timber is just about the most pleasant festival experience a body could ask for … Timber is thoughtfully curated, from a diverse lineup, to a bevy of fun non-musical diversions, right down to very tasty and affordable local food and drink options. These folks are passionate about providing a space where each attendee, and each artist, can truly relax and enjoy. And, the fest is full of families and kids, yet also offers plenty of adult enjoyment. This is a discerning music lovers’ event.

-Isaac Kaplan-Woolner, “Timber! Outdoor Music Festival Stands Tall Above Corporate Giants,” Seattle Music Insider

As the sun set Saturday on the second and final night of Timber! Outdoor Music Festival and a throng of humanity pushed toward the stage, dancing with abandon, it was clear the festival’s inaugural run had been a tremendous success.

-Owen R. Smith, “Timber! Outdoor Music stands tall its first year,” Seattle Times

What was apparent Saturday wasn’t anger, but joy. The band members looked like they were having a blast.
