Another big music fest makes its way into BC’s thriving outdoor concert landscape. With the Pemberton Festival already booked and set to rock, the Whistler Music Festival promises to deliver an equally fun and eclectic summer mix of bands and genres. And, of course, all at the low low cost of almost $70 a day. Ah yes, accessible to all…or not.
Elvis Costello and the Imposters, the Roots and Broken Social Scene have been tapped for this year’s inaugural Whistler Music Festival, to be held July 19-20 at Tube Park at Base II on the side of Blackcomb Mountain in Whistler, B.C.
Other artists performing at the festival include Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Medeski Martin and Wood, Bedouin Soundclash and Serena Ryder. Additional acts will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets for the event go on sale beginning May 29 via whistlermusicfestival.com. Single-day tickets are priced at about $67.50, and two-day passes cost $120.
