Three-day passes go on sale today for the downtown Everett music festival, which, in its ninth year, has become a keystone in Seattle’s extended music ecosystem. The fest is produced by the Everett Music Initiative, which aspires to put Seattle proper’s northern neighbor on the proverbial map; the once-humble fest has made an unlikely name for itself as a regional destination for live music, and this year’s six indoor and outdoor stages will host everything from jazz-leaning hip-hop to blues rock.

The indie queen of Portland, Haley Heynderickx, is perfectly suited to an outdoor concert in springtime; hip-hop trio Digable Planets have a playful, cerebral mastery of the spoken word that’s best savored live; local pop rock outfit Deep Sea Diver has a distinctly Seattle sound, with supple vocals courtesy of former Beck guitarist Jessica Dobson.

Ryan Crowther, Everett Music Initiative’s founder and executive director, expressed that this year’s festival comes at a critical juncture; people have never been “more anxious and excited” to see musicians ply their craft up close, with the disappointments of the past two years serving to emphasize the essential, irreplaceable nature of gathering to appreciate live music. The full lineup is as follows:
