From the announcement on their website:

The Central Committee is happy to announce the first set of confirmed artists for our 2015 festival. All the way from Italy, we've got the amazing Debora Petrina, a singer and composer who has worked in the worlds of Classical music and modern styles. Our California quota this year is being filled by the wonderful MoeTar, who have been building a name for themselves in the prog world lately.
And of course, Seattle will be well represented by Upwell and General Mojo's Key Project, two amazing bands that couldn't be more different.

Further artists will be announced as contracts are signed. Originally intended as a spotlight for Northwest artists, the festival has grown to include such international artists as Miriodor (2014) and Jolanda (2013) as well as non-Northwest American bands miRthkon (2013), Thinking Plague (2013), and Corima (2014).
