What The Music Festival is launching this July 27-29 at White River Canyon in Oregon. A quick 100 mile jaunt south of Portland, this outdoorsy fest highlights why Oregon is such a stellar place to hold a music festival. The venue is located in a desert valley next door to Mt. Hood providing scenic views of the White River. Can you say outdoor mecca?

The first lineup announcement has already been dropped and includes Beats Antique, Claude VonStroke, Bonobo, Gold Panda, Holy Fuck, Emancipator, Star Slinger, and Paper Diamond. See the full list below with the promise that more will be added in the near future.

In between sets check out cozy art installations, chill in the outdoor hookah lounge, or cool off in an oversized splash pool fed by fountains of spring water. What The Festival will also introduce us to “The Oasis” — a mobile bathouse environment that provides showers and a sauna.

Tickets: What The Festival is $160 for a three day general admission pass which comes with free walk-in camping. Parking passes for camping are an additional $50. The OMG Experience (VIP) is $275 for GA and $375 with car camping.
