ABOUT THE EVENT

FAERIEWORLDS RETURNS TO EUGENE OREGON OUR 20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION AT THE CUTHBERT AMPHITHEATER JUNE 17-19

The largest Faerie and Celtic themed event in the US returns to Eugene OR to celebrate its 20th anniversary at the one of the premiere outdoor venues in the Pacific Northwest.

Called “A Bonnaroo staged for Middle Earth,” Faerieworlds features music from acclaimed international bands, an enchanting vending village, roving entertainers and a vibrant children’s and family area. Faerieworlds is an all-ages event, with a focus on creating a fun, safe and nurturing festival environment for people of all generations.

“We are looking forward to bringing Faerieworlds back to Eugene this summer, and especially to launching the first ever full weekend immersive music and arts festival at the spectacular Cuthbert Ampitheatre,” says event co-producer Emilio Miller Lopez.

Co-Producer Robert Gould adds, “These past three years have been very hard on the live events business; many great festivals could not survive and were forced to close. Faerieworlds has been very fortunate to endure, and thanks to the love and support of our fans, the realm will rise once more in Eugene, the city which was home to the festival for so many years.”

Once again, Faerieworlds, is presenting a stellar line up of international world music bands including

Oscar nominated Irish headliners, Kila, who have provided the Celtic soundtracks for such acclaimed films as Apple+ animated feature “Wolfwalkers,” as well as award-winning films including “Secret of Kells,” “Song of the Sea,” and “Monster.” Kila will perform the closing set on Saturday evening starting at 8:30pm.

Sundays headlining set will feature award-winning Iranian singer and songwriter Azam Ali, whose music has been featured in “The Matrix” and “Thor” MCU films series, and who has collaborated with celebrated artist including Peter Murphy (Bauhaus), System of the Down, Zakir Hussain and the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart.

The weekend will feature an array of other Celtic and mythic music artists including Wake the Dead, Abney Park, Casey Neill and the Norway Rats, Stellamara, Trillian Green, Rosamundi & Electric Woodland, Marya Stark, Black Magdalene, Thundercrow, and more.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT FAERIEWORLDS:

 

“To deal with faeries is not a retreat into fantasy, but a re-engagement with life. To dress as a faerie, donning wings, is to actively join in the dance, to be connected to creative spirit. Art, dance, friendship, music: all these move easily across the boundaries, transcending language, race, and time. Such activities extend a joyful hand across the threshold. At Faerieworlds, we ring the bells of faerie invitation. The people come. More importantly, the faeries come too.” – Brian Froud, international best-selling artist, author and film designer

“Faerieworlds is a festival with a little something for everyone, from toddlers to their grandparents and everyone in between. There’s an energy there that embraces everyone, regardless of their path or tradition, whether they’re dressed as goblins or faeries or in their everyday clothing. There is delicious food and energizing music, and shiny baubles for every taste. It’s like a family reunion with a family you didn’t know that you had.” – Mia Nutnick, journalist

 

“It was an honor to be included in Faerieworlds this year. My family and I had so much fun (five year old Bella didn’t want to go home and I sort of didn’t either) and we can’t wait to come back next year. After a few very stressful and emotionally draining years that had me seriously considering retiring from being a Faery artist, Faerieworlds was exactly what I needed to restore my passion for my work. Watching the sheer happiness and abandon of the crowds and seeing all of the beautiful unique items being sold by the vendors was inspirational. A little light bulb went off in my head “AAhhhh… this is why I chose this life. Now I remember.”

This is the type of life I want my girls to grow up with. I want them to know that there are other roads we can take. Faerieworlds helps us find those roads again and again.”  – Amy Brown, internationally acclaimed artist

 

“Faerieworlds mixes art, lifestyle and commerce to create a highly focused, themed environment where shopping is as much a part of the experience as making friends and frolicking. This is not a sterile convention where you set up and sell, it is an immersive theatrical venue where your product can become part of the fantasy community’s collective consciousness. And, it’s a lot of fun.” –  Robert Self, Publisher, Event Producer
