It’s now the largest festival on earth, with people coming all over the world to celebrate Bavarian culture and, of course, drink beer. But it’s not necessary to leave the United States to celebrate Oktoberfest. Many towns across the country – including Ridgefield – have embraced their German heritage, putting together their own festivals.

    Wind Fields is an original song-driven rock group based out of Callahan, CA.  They are described by their fans as, “entertainingly dark and twisty”.  Their appreciation for older pop music drives their sound into short and sweet arrangements with quick changes and often danceable beats.  Their memorable and gritty performances have gained attention from established touring bands in the Portland area as well as southern Oregon.  One of their songs, “The Darkness”, was featured in a short film which was premiered at the Ashland, Oregon Film Festival.

    Opening for Wind Fields will be solo artist Max Hay, providing a double dose of comedy that is balanced by expressive musicianship as Max shifts smoothly between genres and styles.
