One of the neighborhood’s biggest festivals is happening this weekend: Freakout 7 will bring live music to several venues all over downtown Ballard from Thursday, Nov. 14 to Sunday, Nov. 16.
The festival will kick off with their opening night at Sunset Tavern on Thursday, and will continue throughout the weekend with dozens of bands playing at the Tractor Tavern, Salmon Bay Eagles Club, Conor Byrne, Caffe Umbria, CC Filson, and Lagunitas Brewery.
The festival started in 2013 under a different name — the Psychedelic Holiday Freakout Festival — and took place in different neighborhoods around Seattle. The festival has now been based in Ballard for three years, run by independent local record label, Freakout Records.
