“The Offspring is still on tour? This may have occurred to you after reading that the 90s punk band will take the stage at Ambleside Park in August.
Before you start revisiting hits like “The children are not well” and “Pretty Fly (for a white guy)”check out the other bands playing at the Ambleside Music Festival, which includes a strong representation of local artists.
Brought to you by developer GSL Group, the three-day outdoor event runs from August 12-14.
British Columbia artists featured at the festival are Mother Mother, Marianas Trench, Jon and Roy, Hannah Georgas, The Harpoonist & The Ax Murderer and Little Destroyer.
Others include Walk Off The Earth, Charlotte Cardin, Grandson, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Ria Mae, Tokyo Police Club, Scott Helman, Valley, The Blue Stones and Virginia To Vegas.
Ambleside Music Festival producer Quinn Allen said curating the lineup was no small task.
“We really wanted the weekend to stand out,” he said. “The idea behind the lineup we built was to keep the acts fun and high energy while ensuring there was enough musical diversity to make the weekend appealing to a wide audience.”
Allen said it was also very important to incorporate local talent. “This is a festival for people in the Greater Vancouver area, and we wanted to echo that sentiment with this lineup.”
GSL President and CEO Graham Lee said the event will become an important pillar of the community for years to come.
“Our vision is to make West Vancouver and the Ambleside Music Festival a key destination and calendar highlight for music on Canada’s west coast,” he said.
GSL previously held Rock Ambleside Park festivals beginning in 2017. An Ambleside Retro Music Festival was planned for 2020 and 2021, but canceled due to the pandemic.
On sale now, general admission weekend passes are $245 per person and $122.50 per child. There are also VIP passes for $525, which include private entrance, access to a VIP lounge, elevated viewing area, and dedicated restrooms.
