That's a wrap

Soundcheck 2019 has ended.

Thanks for coming out everybody, see you next year!


Soundcheck has a bus to safely transport THING campers between venues and the place where they will rest their heads at the night's end.

The Soundcheck Bus

The bus runs on a fixed route starting at Jefferson County Fairgrounds and passes through uptown, descends into downtown, skirts boat haven, then returns to the fairgrounds. Most venues are somewhere along this route.

The bus will begin service at 2pm from the fairgrounds and run continuously until 1:30am (with the exception of a driver dinner break around 5-6 pm). The full loop takes about 40 minutes. The final trip will depart from Uptown Pub at 1:15am and the Cellar Door at 1:30am. Don't miss the last bus—it's a long walk back to the campground!

Venues on or near the bus route:

  • · Cellar Door
  • · Phosphene
  • · Port Townsend Brewing Co.
  • · Propolis
  • · Pourhouse
  • · Quimper Sound Records
  • · Sirens
  • · Tunnel Tavern
  • · Uptown Pub
  • · Vintage Wine Bar
