“The Green Lake Festival of Music is trying a bold experiment in the 2017 season: There will be no charge for tickets. Instead, audience members will be invited to donate what they can. “We want everyone to feel welcome to all our concerts and special events, and we hope removing the barrier of cost will make it possible for more people to enjoy the extraordinary artistry that is the hallmark of this 38-year-old festival,” said Festival Director Laura Deming.
