Everything you need to know about Dusu Fest 2015!

The time is near for the 2nd Annual Dusu Mali Fest! We are stoked and cannot wait to get this party started. The event will take place September 11th and 12th just outside of Silverton, OR. The venue is nestled in the foothills of the Cascades a one-hour drive from Portland (& Eugene!). The property is a beautiful wooded slope in the Silverton hills with a view of Mount Hood, and a short drive away from Silver Falls State Park.

The festival starts Friday at 6pm and wraps ups at 1pm on Sunday. Tickets are $40 for a weekend pass, or $25 for Saturday only. Presale tickets include a high-quality digital download of Dusu’s most recent album, Never Give Up, and are available for purchase until Wednesday evening 9/9/2015 at https://dusumaliband.bandcamp.com/merch/. Tickets will be available at the gate for cash only.

Parking is $20 per vehicle if you drive alone, and $10 per vehicle if you have two or more. Please carpool! Cash only!

Please refrain from building any fires. We take this very seriously. There will be buckets of water placed around the property to be used in case of a fire.

There will be a Registered Nurse and First-Aid/CPR certified crew on-site throughout the duration of the event. Look for information on safety and medical at the festival information table.

Please bring cash for any food and drink purchased at the festival. Outside food and alcohol is discouraged. Please support our food and drink efforts to help make Dusu Fest a success! We will have a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available in exchange for your cash donation (beer, wine, liquor, soda, coffee, tea).

Ibu will once again be cooking African food, also available in exchange for your cash donation. For dinner, meat options include chicken or beef Ibu-ritos (Ibu-style burritos) along with African-style rotisserie goat meat from goats from Wheatacres Farm in Wasco, Oregon. A vegan option with eggplant will also be available. Gluten-free options are available as well. For brunch, there will be scrambled eggs and sausage with hash browns.

Food will be served according to the following schedule (don’t miss it!):

6:00-9:00pm Dinner (Ibu-ritos, meat/vegan/gluten-free options)

Drinking water is from the well and we will also likely have a water filter.

To avoid excess garbage, we ask that you please pack out what you bring in. Also please bring your own water bottle, mug, plate, and utensils if possible.

Please leave your pets at home. Jake, the festival site owners’ dog, is great around people but sometimes not around other dogs. He’ll be the only animal on the grounds that weekend.

Keep in mind that this is at a private residence so please be respectful to the property and to all attendees. Let’s make this festival as safe and successful as possible to ensure everyone has a good time and we could continue doing this in the future.
