In just over three weeks, Oregon will welcome in its newest summer event: What The Festival. This inaugural three-day gathering will take place in White River Canyon, a beautiful desert valley located 100 miles east of Portland, adjacent to Mount Hood. Enveloped by the rolling White River and picturesque canyon bluffs, the site sets the perfect stage for an authentic summer event filled with remarkable music and big art.   What The Festival will feature more than 50 of the world’s vanguard musical acts who encompass EDM, indie, and hip-hop. Headliners of the festival include Beats Antique, Ghostland Observatory, Big Gigantic, MiM0SA, Claude VonStroke, Bonobo, and Gold Panda, among many others. While the artists’ extraordinary sound is blasted through high-end sound systems, festival attendees can relax in the midst of tantalizing chill zones, an open-air hookah lounge, and an oversized splash pool.

Focusing on a sophisticated and luxurious attendee experience, What The Festival is offering a $180 GA Weekend Pass to its attendees. Although camping fees are included in the GA ticket, festival goers must make sure to purchase a separate parking ticket if they plan to bring a car to the event.
