4 peaks 2008: more people, more tents, more acres, more bands, more tie dye.OK, so we got an inch or so of snow in this, the second week of April, but with the mercury finally climbing, it's high time you to start planning your summer outdoor music schedule.

 
The 4 Peaks Music Festival announced its lineup last week for its July 25-26 event, as well as the fact that their local festival grounds have nearly quadrupled in size with the addition of expanded camping area. The initial lineup, which festival organizers say will likely grow as the date nears, already rivals last year's roster with emerging Bay-Area soul-jammers Tea Leaf Green, String Cheese Incident descendants Zilla, as well as returning bluegrass stars Hot Buttered Rum and Seattle's Flowmotion leading the way. Also on the bill: sudden Bend favorite Poor Man's Whiskey, Matt Butter & S.E.E., local heroes Moon Mountain Ramblers, State of Jefferson and more.


An allotment of early bird tickets is already on sale for $64.50 for both days, and camping each night - act soon, festival organizers say, as prices will increase once that allotment is sold. With the positive buzz from last year's event, it's almost guaranteed that this year's edition will draw a much larger crowd. Check out 4peaksmusic.com for tickets and details.

Also, for all of you devastated by the Modest Mouse fake out a few weeks ago, let's all join in a sigh of relief in knowing that the band is actually, really, almost-certainly going to be rocking its pre-indie style on the Les Schwab Amphitheater stage on Sunday, May 25 to wrap up the already divine Memorial Day Weekend lineup. Modest Mouse brings in tow a hardy opening lineup consisting of a resurging Breeders as well as The National. Tickets available at the Ticket Mill or ticketmaster.com. - Mike Bookey
