Official Press Release August 13, 2012
Wapiti 2012 Success!
Organizers are beaming this Monday morning after a successful second year of the Wapiti Music Festival in Fernie BC.
Perfect weather along with the beautiful setting in Annex Park made for a great vibe amongst the festival-goers all weekend.
The two-day festival saw 1500 attendees throughout the weekend and 120 volunteers to pull it all off without a hitch.
The festival boasted an eclectic variety of music genres and catered to all ages.
Twelve bands rocked the stage from latin funk to bluesy-rock to indie pop.
Friday night Vancouver’s The Boom Booms had the crowd dancing well into the night as indie rockers The British Columbians closed down the show wowing the crowd. Juno nominated Cuff the Duke was a favorite on Saturday. In true Fernie style, an enormous dance party erupted as Five Alarm Funk rocked the stage Saturday night to wrap up a wonderful weekend.
Next year’s Wapiti Music Festival is slated for August 9 and 10th 2013.
