About this Event

ModFest 2019 will host 40ish bands including URAL THOMAS AND THE PAIN, HORSE FEATHERS, SAMA DAMS, BART BUDWIG, SUNBATHE, AND HOLIDAY FRIENDS at various venues in downtown Moscow on September 28th & 29th!

We believe very strongly in local art and music and ModFest aims to provide a bigger stage for our talented local bands who deserve as much support as we can give them.

Humble Burger is dedicated to the music and art made right here in our community. We've absolutely loved hosting dozens of bands since we opened our restaurant in 2015, and want to continue to do our small part to grow the music scene on the Palouse. Modest Music Fest is one way to share our music community with everyone else in the Northwest and beyond.


We're excited to announce our ModFest 2019 venues include Humble Burger, Bitterroot Tattoo, BookPeople, and One World Cafe. The bulk of the performances at Modest Music Fest will take place in these businesses, running Saturday (9/28) from 8:00 PM-11:30PM and Sunday (9/29) from 1PM-8PM. Our headliner show begins at 8:00PM Sunday night at The Kenworthy Theater!


TWO-DAY FESTIVAL WRISTBANDS are good for all shows on both September 28th & 29th for just $30*. That's less than $1 per band... which we think is a pretty great deal!

We understand some folks also only want to see one or two other bands at the festival, so we will also have a limited number of a la carte tickets available at the door for individual shows. A la carte tickets are priced as follows:

Saturday night door ticket: $10

Sunday door ticket: $15

Headliner door tickets at The Kenworthy: $25

Again, please note there will only be a limited number of these tickets at each venue.

*The prices listed above do not include ticketing fees and taxes. There is an additional fee for online sales. PLEASE NOTE: Physical wristbands will be available for pick up from 11AM-11PM on Saturday, September 28th and 11AM-7PM on Sunday, September 29th at the Humble Burger Box Office (102 N Main Street). All attendees must be present with a valid ID when redeeming wristbands.

NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY: Humble Burger loves our neighbors—all of our neighbors—and Modest Music Fest is an extension of that commitment. We want to again pledge 10% of any music festival profits to the Latah Recovery Center to help them continue the vital work they do in our community. We would also like to make it explicitly clear that we want our music festival to bring different folks together around some fantastic live music regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, etc. Humble Burger and Modest Music Fest will not accept discrimination against anyone for any reason. Let's love our neighbors, be kind to each other, and celebrate great art together.


Is there an age limit for the festival?

Humble Burger's Modest Music Fest is totally all ages (in fact, kids 12 and under can attend for free!). Our goal is to bring great music to Moscow that's accessible to everyone. That being said, some of our artists perform music that may not be considered suitable for kids. And while we do not ask our artists to censor their art, we are sensitive to the fact that parents may want to protect their children's ears. Please check out the music before taking children to the show!
