PWI is a regional festival, drawings on a diversity of acts, from true local favorites from ‘the valley’ to critically acclaimed bands from communities such as Seattle, Bellingham, and Spokane.

This year is the second year for PWI and headliners include: Polecat, Fly Moon Royalty, Blake Noble, McTuff, and The Staxx Brothers, who have already thrilled audiences at festivals such Sasquatch, The Capital Hill Block Party, and Bumbershoot.
