Wanna listen to some funk-a-delic music and shake that groove thing? Throw in some local libations from Dick’s Brewing and soul food from Buzz’s BBQ, and you’ve got Oly Funk Fest 5000.

Acorn Project, Dave BenSam Trio, The Tilted Stilts, Grains of Paradise, and a DJ that has a trunk funkin full of records for your dancing pleasure, is going down at 2 p.m. Saturday, September 29. Overnight camping on the 5-acre property is included, first come first serve, 21 and over with I.D.

“Ideally it’s for people to get out and have fun,” says Abbie Darin, event organizer. “It’s an end of the summer event to get locals out where they can stay up late and not worry about driving home.”

Acorn Project plays festivals up and down the coast, Dave BenSam Trio create a brand of music they've self titled “transmographonic zazzcore,” The Tilted Stilts are an experimental rock band and Grains of Paradise is a band with smooth, funky, reggae sounds and an interest in “grooving with the groovers.”

Oly Funk Fest 5000 will get its groove on at 4326 Shinke Rd in Olympia. (That’s off South Bay Rd.) $15 at door, $10 with costume (highly encouraged.)
