BAMF! is Bellingham’s first locally based overnight arts fest aimed at celebrating as much of this city’s art as possible in 24 hours (yes music will run allllll night). BAMF! runs noon-noon on May 6 & 7 at the Lookout Arts Quarry, a refurbished, collectively owned rock quarry ten minutes south of downtown.
BAMF! will feature 45 musical acts, film and comedy across four distinct stages. Peruse the grounds for art installations, art vendors, food vendors, a beer garden, and be sure to catch morning yoga led by local yogi.b. All art installs, vendors, and beer are local to Bellingham so bring your dollars to help support your community!
Tickets include access to the fest and camping, parking not included. Tickets may also be purchased at the door, but we encourage you to purchase in advance for quicker entry.
Parking for the whole event is $20. In order to encourage environmentally mindful travel we are offering a Clown Car Discount. If each of your car seats are full of *people* your parking is FREE. Carpool! Bring your friends! Bring your mom!
Camping is all contained within wooded areas. We highly encourage hammocks if you’ve got ’em and to leave behind any extra clutter. Be prepared to Leave No Trace: pack out what you pack in and leave the Quarry more beautiful than before!
BAMF!’s goal is to be a Zero Waste event. We will have sorting bins for landfill, recycling, and compost. Bring your own refillable bottles and mugs if you truly want to be a BAMF.
What to Bring:
an adventurous spirit!
your dancing shoes!
reusable mugs and water bottles! (we will not be selling water bottles, there are refill stations throughout the grounds)
camping supplies! (while we encourage all-nighters to participate in all the fun, please catch some zzz’s if you’re driving home)
Inclusive and non-violent attitudes!
What to Leave at Home:
Outside alcohol & drugs
Weapons of any kind
Exclusivity or violence
The Quarry has a zero tolerance policy toward violence of any kind and we fully support that aim as well. We want this space to be inclusive and supportive, lets build each other up and keep everyone safe!
