The 6th edition of the Squamish Valley Music Festival has come to a close with record attendance coming to see 4 days of great music. Across the Festival’s five venues, top talents met EDM and played alongside up-and-coming acts and local artists.
With Saturday and Sunday, headlined by Drake and Mumford & Sons respectively, sold out the festival reached a new record of 118,000 attendance. Adding in Friday’s headliner, Sam Smith and the Thursday pre-fest shows music fans were spoiled for choice, the only drawback was deciding who to see.
The Festival’s five music venues spread around the scenic 97 acre grounds can be a fair distance between and some of the set times overlapped, making it difficult to get between stages.
Hundreds of vendors and supporters’ activations filled the site with activity so guests could always find something to do and see no matter where they were on-site. New this year was the trial open-field liquor policy at the Tantalus Stage, festival-goers 19+ could take their alcoholic beverages beyond the confines of the beer garden and into the Tantalus field, until 9pm.
Based on the success of this year’s event, organizers of the Squamish Valley Music Festival are pleased to announce next year’s Festival will take place August 5th, 6th and 7th, 2016.
