On a cute, quaint farm; tucked away just off of i-5; in Stanwood, Washington -- sat LaFlamapalooza 2018 this past weekend, August 10th-12th. Cam LaFlam, of Seattle bands Great Grandpa and Apples with Moya, has been hosting the fest for a handful of years. Over time the festival has grown to become a  summer favorite among Pacific Northwest indie music fans. Featuring primarily bands from the Pacific Northwest, it's sonically diverse lineup somehow manages to never have a single "dud" band. In it's most recent years, the festival has donated proceeds to various non-profit organizations, and this year the fest support the King County Sexual Assault Resource Center. We complied some of our favorite songs from the festival's artists. In addition to the Spotify playlist, some really amazing artists who were at the festival and can't be heard on Spotify are Fine, Being a Living Thing, Apples with Moya, Baby Jessica, Olivia White, Patti
