(ALBANY, Ore. ) - Blue Oyster Cult and Bachman & Turner will perform Saturday at 8:00 p.m. on the Main Stage at the Oregon Amphitheater as the headline act for the 2014 ATI Northwest Art & Air Festival in Albany, Oregon.

Amphitheater gates open at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, and wristbands will be placed on all persons entering the venue, and will be required to enter or exit the Amphitheater.

For over four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs.

The Long Island-based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it’s one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success.

After many years of fan demand, Randy Bachman and Fred Turner, two giants of rock n’ roll, are reunited for the first time in more than 20 years.

The musicians at the heart of legendary band Bachman-Turner Overdrive are touring as Bachman & Turner. The duo and their top-notch band released their first two singles in two decades, “Rollin’ Along,” and “Slave to the Rhythm.”

The 15th annual ATI Northwest Art & Air Festival runs August 22-24, at Timber-Linn Memorial Park, and at the Albany Municipal Airport.

The weekend includes hot-air balloon launches at dawn every day; a balloon “night glow” on Friday; more than 70 Northwest artists with their crafts for show and sale; food; a wine and microbrew garden; live music; Family Zone; classic car show; free Young Eagles flights for kids; and aircraft displays and other activities at the airport.

More than 60,000 attended the 2013 Festival.

The event is presented by Albany Parks & Recreation. ATI is the title sponsor for the 15th year.

For information contact Albany Parks & Recreation at 541-917-7777, or visit www.nwartandair.org.
