The Return of the Four Hoarse Men

4HM Score

The Four Hoarse Men will perform at Smoke Farm this weekend: 12731 Smokes Road, Arlington, Washington 98223

$40 General Admission / $20 Bike Ticket

The Lo-Fi Arts Festival, Farm Time 2012, brings together over seventy-five exhibiting artists and hundreds of guests for a 24-hour journey into performance, installation, music, storytelling, and the mutability of time. From life-size bird nests to larger-than-life fairy tale sculptures, and from aerial dance to underground rituals, expect the breathtaking and the bizarre.

Spend the day exploring 360 acres of converted farmland in a serene river valley located outside Arlington, Washington. You never know who or what you’ll find along the way – dancers, painters, poets – on the trail or in the trees. Overnight camping is encouraged. Bring everything you need to float the river, have a cookout (grills and coals provided), and sleep comfortably under the stars. Pack out what you pack in and bring biodegradable soaps only. Light refreshments for sale, including fare from Viva Farms and Pretzelwagen and pies by Kate Lebo.

Tickets available online and at the gate. Advance purchase recommended. They will sell out.
