6th Annual Seattle Acoustic Festival Returns to Capitol Hill on October 12

The Seattle Acoustic Festival is returning to Capitol Hill at the All-Pilgrims Christian Church on October 12th for its 6th year. 

For year six, the Seattle Acoustic Festival is bringing a fantastic line-up together for the annual, flagship event. “We’ve maybe never had such an electrifying line-up of incredible artists,” says organizer, Paul Mauer. “We’re really excited for this year.”

Ambitiously, SAF will let attendees name their own ticket prices. “It’s really a priority for us to make sure that we are as inclusive as we can possibly be, and that means letting people pay what they can to attend,” says Mauer.

The Seattle Acoustic Festival is also using a new tag line this year: “Quiet is the new loud.” Co-founder Elijah Dhavvan adds, “The festival is based on the idea that even the quiet, mellow, acoustic musicians of the area can elicit the most powerful emotional experiences for the audience.”

The Seattle Acoustic Festival emphasizes an intimate, up-close musical experience, with audience members able to find a more engaging connection with the musical artists. “We emphasize story-telling and sharing experiences through music,” says Dhavvan, “and we hope that audiences will come away with a unique appreciation for the songs that they love.”
