Salmonstock 2012

Celebrating Wild Alaskan Salmon


by Manny Creech

This year's lineup included, Ozomatli, Leftover Salmon, and the Robert Randolph Family Band.

The event is organized and hosted by the Renewable Resources Foundation which is a non-working to protect Alaska's fishing way of life.

Salmonstock features presentations and informational booths to give attendees a chance to learn how they can make a positive impact on the wild salmon habitat.

But it wasn't just a political rally, it was also a chance to bring big national acts, and new up and comers from right here in Alaska and all across the United States.

Last year over 3,000 people were in attendance with over 35 bands. According to organizers, this year looked to be even bigger.

I was there, and yeah it was definitely bigger and more attended that last year's event (which was successful in and of itself). Definitely an up and coming festival in Alaska.
