h T, Er. - August 1,2012 VouR COMMUNITV Page 7 / Twenty From page 1 day, more than 700 volunteers help run the festival, with attendance of more than 10,000 per day. Jamboree Marketing Director Teresa Stas said that the confusion may have resulted from Wynonna's performance not being publicized as heavily as some of the other art- ists in the Jamboree line-up. "I think it's because she has been left out of some of the mar- keting," Stas said, adding that con- tractual requirements based on the artist's schedule kept Wynonna out of marketing that reached Portland, and that affected some marketing in the Mid-Valley. She is appearing now in new marketing, and is now on the video billboard at Woodburn, for exam- ple, Stas said. Stas said people who encoun- ter rumors such as this should visit the website, oregonjamboree.com. The information on the site is up- dated and correct. The only cancellation this year was the Eli Young Band, which canceled in January or February, which was then replaced in the line-up. Meanwhile, the Jamboree is preparing for this year's celebra- tion with new features and a week- end of contests and events, making the annual show even bigger and better. "It's going really well," said Marketing Director Teresa Stas. "We're really excited about some of the new additions we have. We've done some really cool ad- ditions." The Jamboree will have a "promo booth" on site this year, with a team of volunteers to coor- dinate and help with contests all weekend long, Stas said. It will include chances to win meet and greets, tickets for the Sweet Spot in front of the stage, prize packs from sponsors and invitations to artist receptions. Normally, if artist receptions aren't set up before the festival, they don't happen, Stas said. This will give everyone attending the Jamboree a shot at them. "It's our birthday," Stas said. "They'll (the patrons) get all of the presents." Another goodie will be a per- formance Sundayby Sweet Home's Trevor Tagle on the Spirit Moun- tain Stage in Sankey Park. On the Main Stage, Neal Mc- Coy will rattle off fiddles and start. contests all weekend long, Stas said, and concertgoers need to re- member to keep an eye on Face- book for contests and opportuni- ties. "It's our way to reward all of the people for coming for 20 years," Stas said. The festival will have a few new site upgrades, small and large. Among them will be a cell phone charging station, the addition of a toddler area hosted by Little Prom- ises in the Northwest Natural Kids Zone and new "best seats in the house" - a deck seating 20, called the Crown Royal Deck, built above the right side of the stage (house fight) above the monitor consoles, giving patrons a close up look at their favorite country stars. Twenty seats per day are avail- able. No one can buy a seat on the platform, though. They are avail- able only through contests, before and during the festival. Each pass for the deck is good for one day at the l'estival. A pass will be awarded at Thursday night's kickoff party in Safeway's parking lot. There will be ways to win a seat on that deck throughout the Jamboree. Concertgoers without a smart phone and Internet connection, needed to sign up for email and the festival newsletter, can still be involved by visiting the promo booth. The Jamboree will run a 20- year trivia contest, Stas said. Con- certgoers can get the answers by talking to volunteers and visiting the booths at the show. The winner of the trivia contest will win a 2013 prize package, including passes to the Sweet Spot, tickets and camp- ing: The main stage will feature McCoy, a Jamboree favorite, em- ceeing and performing at 4:15 p.m. on Saturday. "Neal's been with us for a very long time now," Stas said. This will be his sixth appearance at the Jam- boree since 2005. The only years since then that he not performed here were 2006, 2009 and 2011. "He loves that it's volunteer- powered," Stas said. "He loves this area. He loves this community. He is so excited about emceeing too. He is just pumped up about it. He's got some things he wants to do (to celebrate the 20th) too. His Show really connects to the audience. Every show he does, he adapts to the audience. He participates with them. He caters to the crowd. He caters to the people who come to see him. People have been really excited about him coming." Rascal Flatts headlines Friday at 9:15 p.m. "Everybody knows Rascal Flatts," Stas said. "'They are big crossover celebrities." The group has done songs with Justin Bieber and Natasha Beding- field, Stas said. The show and stage will be a lot of fun, she said, with a lot of in- teraction with the audience. Stas said she is really excited to see the Charlie Daniels Band, opening for Rascal Flatts at 7 p.m. Jon Pardi kicks off the Jamboree at 3 p.m. on Friday, and Thomas Rhett plays at 5 p.m. Wynonna "Brantley Gilbert has been a big deal," Stas said of the artist who will open for Wynonna at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday. "He's sort of the bad boy of country fight now." Gilbert holds the current No. 1 single, his second, Stas said. "We think it's a great mix with him," Stas said. He brings new country to the stage, while Wynon- na follows up with the traditional country her fans love. Wynonna performs at 8:45 p.m., her fourth appearance at the Jamboree, after performing here in 1992, 1993 and 2000. "She's bringing it back to where it all started - with more hits," Stas said. Morgan Frazier opens Satur- day at noon, followed by the Ken- tucky Headhunters at 2 p.m. The Headhunters appeared at the Jam- boree in 1995. Chris Young, who performs a popular traditional style of country, opens for Dierks Bentley at 4:15 p.m. on Sunday. "He's on fire fight now," Stas said. "He's on his fifth No. 1 single right now." Bentley will close out the fes- tival, taking the stage at 6:30 p.m. "He's a great festival act," Stas said. "He's really rooted in the outdoors." Bentley played here in 2007. Edens Edge opens Sunday's performances at 1 p.m. followed by Steve Holy, who played here in 2007 and at the mystery concert last spring in Corvallis, at 2 p.m. The Spirit Mountain stage re- tums this year with nine shows, See Twenty, page 10 Le Folh Country 00HAM & -- i c $8: L ,jl .j7 Comes with z eg00s, nas ,owns & toast i k A pF@ kk CALL IN yur TO-GO rder I Mon -Thursday 7am -2:30pmLimit(Sa]Fd - Sun] coupon ) 6am367-0433-per2:30pmtoble I k Coupon required.
