HAREFEST went to 11 this year at the Clackamas Co. Fairgrounds./ Photos


This three day tribute festival kicked off on Thursday, July 13th with old skool hits from Radical Revolution & the hilarious debut of None More Black (Spinal Tap), I couldn’t stop laughing behind my camera.

The heat was blazing on Fri, July 14th with flashbacks from Dr. Crue (Motley Crue), Queen Nation - (Queen) and Grand Royale (Beastie Boys). Gregory Finsley, vocalist for Queen Nation channeled Freddy Mercury perfectly, giving me chills!

On Saturday, it was even hotter with Barracuda belting out Heart and Led Zeppelin, Hysteria (Def Leppard), Best Of Both Worlds (Best Of Both Worlds), and Stone In Love (Journey).

Over 6000 fans were in attendance at this year’s Harefest 11. This was my first time seeing any of these talented performers that look, sound & act like the original artists . It made me feel like I drove the DeLoren back in time. I was blown away! I cannot wait to attend next year’s Harefest 12!
Check out my photos of all the fun below. For more photos from this festival, visit my Instagram.
