Inspired by the fiercely independent spirit of Ballard’s legendary “refuse to sell” resident, Edith Macefield, the MACEFIELD MUSIC FESTIVAL is produced through the collaborative efforts of the Ballard community, sponsored by The Stranger, KEXP, and in partnership
with Musicares. Now in its second year, the MACEFIELD MUSIC FESTIVAL features local, up-and-coming performers alongside national acts from all musical genres, playing on seven stages throughout venues along Ballard Avenue. We are also expanding the format to include non-wristband features like a night-market, poster show, record swap, mobile food
 court with beer & drink gardens and more! We want everyone to come to Ballard on October 3rd and 4th and have a party!

THANK YOU!

A HUGE heartfelt thanks to every volunteer, band, musician, vendor, partner, and most certainly not least, the ballard community, for making this years event so fantastic!

The Macefield Music Festival is 2 days of live music in various venues across Ballard including our outdoor, all-ages main stage in the Hattie’s Hat parking lot, The Tractor Tavern, The Sunset Tavern, Conor Byrne Pub, Sonic Boom Records, Lucky Dry Goods, and the Macefield Market.

Still heavily NW music focused, this year the festival expanded to include a second night, an all-ages main stage (rain or shine), a comedy showcase, and introduced…THE MACEFIELD MARKET, a 2 day long rock ’n’ roll market featuring a poster exhibition, record swap, trade show, clothing, artisans and crafts vendors with its own beer and drink garden!!   The MACEFIELD MARKET also featured live music and DJs that is free and open to the public.  The Macefield Music Festival was sponsored by The Stranger, KEXP, and Do206 and is proud to have support KEXP and MusiCares among a number of community partners with a portion of proceeds.
