KAREN: Hi, this is Karen Malanga, Principal Broker at RE/MAX Key Properties in Bend. Also, I have a new company called Pinecone Lending, so if you’re thinking about selling your home, we offer listing improvement loans that are paid at close of escrow.
That’s the end of promoting me. I’m really here to promote Stacy Koff and 4 Peaks Music Festival. Stacy, can you tell us what’s going on?
STACY: Yeah, thanks for having me, and congrats on the Pinecone.
KAREN: You’re welcome. [laughs]
STACY: Yeah, June 20th to 23rd out at the Stevenson Ranch again in Bend.
KAREN: Which is such a great location.
STACY: It’s so great. It’s beautiful, and it’s shaping up nicely out there right now. We’re actually doing some improvements for this year. Gosh, we have a brand new production coming this year.
STACY: Yeah, for all the families coming and Kidlandia and the Junction area. We’re divvying up with different ways this year. We have tepees again out there, a movie under the stars for the families, silent disco at night, yoga in the morning. Just lots of activities besides the 22 amazing bands that are coming.
KAREN: For those of you who haven’t been to 4 Peaks, because you might not know what she’s talking about when she says Kidlandia and stuff, the best way to find out about it is to go to 4peaksmusic.com. That’s the number 4.
STACY: Yeah, 4peaksmusic.com.
KAREN: But also, I was on your website and I was looking at the yurts, and they seem so cool. For $920, you can rent a furnished yurt, so you don’t even have to worry about filling your camper or supplies. You just simply pull up to the festival and it’s furnished – and you get two passes to the festival. Am I right on that?
STACY: It’s all included. You just basically roll up in your car, and it’s like a red carpet rolled out for you. They’re beautifully furnished yurts.
KAREN: Are they?
STACY: If you haven’t seen them, there are pictures on 4peaksmusic.com. You can also get an unfurnished one if you want to bring your own gear but you want your hut/yurt set up for you. It’s by campingyurts.com. Those are amazing. We have a few left, so some of those are left as well as you can buy an RV pass and bring your RV, you can tent camp, and it’s all with your car. And if you’re local in Bend and you want to go home at night, you can do that too. You don’t have to camp.
KAREN: Is the yurt company a local Central Oregon company?
STACY: They are Central Oregon, yes.
STACY: They come from Summer Lake, I believe.
KAREN: Oh, I love Summer Lake. No wonder they’re making yurts. That’s perfect. [laughs]
STACY: Exactly. It’s great.
KAREN: So you’ve got the yurt option, your own camping option, you can bring an RV. You can also rent an RV, too.
STACY: You can, yes. Happy Camper and Beaver Coaches is doing a rental program for us this year, so you can call them, and there’s two tickets or four tickets depending on the RV you want rented. They bring it onsite for you, and all you have to do is show up as well. The RV passes are included with that.
KAREN: I think one of the funnest things, too, about 4 Peaks, because I’ve been going for a while – it used to be a tiny festival and it keeps growing, even with Los Lobos this year, so some really recognizable people – but it’s the people that have come every year. There’s this one great gal, and she’s got the total vintage camper.
STACY: Oh, Chris.
KAREN: Is that her? Then she’s got the vintage clothes, and when her camper doors are open, oh my goodness –
STACY: It’s beautiful. It’s decked out.
KAREN: And she comes out all in costume for the music. It’s so much fun.
STACY: It’s really “let your freak flag fly” kind of thing. It’s really anything goes. Yeah, you can set up your beautiful retro camper or go home at night, like I said.
Yeah, Los Lobos, the Wood Brothers this year – they were up for a Grammy. We’ve got Billy Strings. He’s an incredible bluegrass virtuoso. Rising Appalachia is closing it out on Sunday, and we have Sunday passes if you just want to come for the day, as well as Friday and Saturday we have day passes as well.
KAREN: Right now it’s time to get your tickets, though, because it’s getting close.
STACY: It’s getting close. Locals can go down to Cosmic Depot as well. There’s still a discount there. You can actually save a nice chunk of money by going to Cosmic Depot.
KAREN: Plus it’s a great store.
STACY: It is a great store. [laughs] I’ve been there.
KAREN: Anyway, Stacy, what’s the best way, again, for the audience heret o find you?
STACY: Sure, 4peaksmusic.com. All the information about camping and families and what to bring, what not to bring, all your options – and again, there’s tickets at Cosmic Depot as well.
KAREN: Thank you so much, Stacy.
STACY: Thank you for having me.
KAREN: You bet.
STACY: I’ll see you out there.
KAREN: I’ll see you at the festival.
