Cheers! Wapiti is off to a fantastic start!
The 2012 Wapiti Music Festival kicked off ticket sales with an unprecedented turn selling out Early Bird tickets in just one day. Advance Tickets are now on sale for $45.
Advance tickets are only on sale until August 1st or while quantities last.
Purchase online or downtown Fernie at Midge’s Mags.
Who’s playing? You’re asking so we’re telling! Bands are signing on here and there with more coming down the pipe in the next few months.
So far the all-Canadian eclectic lineup includes:
The Boom Booms – A six-piece Latin-soul-funk-rock-reggae band, forged from friendships born on the school yards, soccer fields, cafe patios and eventually bars of East Vancouver.
The British Columbians – Our finest selection for the Rock’n’Roll quotient of Wapiti.
The Zolas – Infectious indie-pop songs with hairpin turns, schizoid piano throwdowns, and a sort of cabaret strut. Dance party!
Stay tuned every month for more exciting band announcements.
“Dear Wapiti: you were so worth the $400 plane ticket to get from the Yukon to Fernie. I’ll see you next year.” Allen Lee via Facebook.
Wapiti runs two days, Friday August 10th and Saturday the 11th. Plan to join the kickoff Friday evening and dance into the night, return Saturday for a full day and night of entertainment. Expect to rock, expect to dance, expect the unexpected.
Wapiti Music Festival is an event of the registered non-profit Wapiti Music Festival Society. PO Box 1614, Fernie, BC V0B 1M0. For more information: wapitimusicfestival.com.
