Get Ready! --- Doe Bay Fest 8 ---- August 6 to 10, 2015

Doe Bay Fest 8, the "As Above, So Below" Fest is in countdown mode now. We have a date, a time, a place and musicians are getting ready. We have announced almost all of our Artists...

We are all over Twitter. Follow us @doebayfest and check out the hash tag #doebayfest8.

Submissions are now closed - We thank the hundreds of artists who have submitted. We could have three festivals of great music but only have time for one.

The Music – I can't wait to see you all on August 6th. The line-up is very cool, filled with musicians with whom we want to spend some time "up the country". We are never sure, but we think this year's line-up will be something special. Bringing back Champagne Champagne is like getting to go back to your neighborhood … as a kid again. They coined the “doe bay, doe bay?.... DOE BAY, DOE BAY” chant which has been heard at concerts and gatherings all over.

Immersion – I think I have told this story before, but I am an opera fan and when I get tickets to an opera, I immediately start playing the music over and over. When the curtain rises, I am at home. So I invite you to the world premiere of Doe Bay Fest 8 – a modern opera. To prepare I suggest large helpings of these videos. Play this playlist over and over and you will be ready. I will update the list with a couple additional acts we cannot yet announce.

Planning - Check out our latest DBFest Newsletter to help you prepare. Give some thought to your Fest plans. Read our emails with information about transportation and planning and parking and clothing and food and drink, etc., as they come out. They are based on experience and will help you have what you need and not have what you don't. Leave your cars at home. Reserve the water taxi. If you plan to come by car, YOU BETTER LEARN ABOUT THE NEW RESERVATION SYSTEM.

Tickets – We are sold out. Keep an eye on . We will get cancellations and we put them out on the Doe Bay online store without much fanfare.

If you are able, please check out Doe Bay at least once this year during the 361 days which are not part of Doe Bay Fest. Let me know by writing to Our door is always open and you are always welcome here. With much love,

Joe and Maureen Brotherton
