When: From Friday, August 8th until Sunday, August 10th, 2014.
Where: Centennial Field, Loggers Sports Grounds and Hendrickson Fields, Squamish, B.C. (Approx. 45 minutes north from Vancouver, and 30 minutes south of Whistler.
Time: Gates open at 5:00 pm on Thursday, 7th, and on Friday, Saturday, Sunday at 1:00 pm each day. Music will begin a few hours after the gates open.
Age: All ages.
Overview: This year's lineup features predominantly main line acts like Eminem, Arcade Fire, Bruno Mars, but with an electronic dance music component with bookings such as Pete Tong, John Digweed, Jamie Jones, and more. Set at the picturesque mountain town of Squamish, B.C., and only a short drive from Vancouver and Whistler - this year's Squamish Valley Music Festival is a great reason to organize a road trip.
Why you should go
For fans of the underground house and progressive scene, Sunday's Squamish lineup of Jamie Jones, John Digweed, Pete Tong, Cyril Hahn, and more is reason enough to attend. Jamie Jones and John Digweed rarely make DJ'ing appearances in this part of the world, so the opportunity to see this lineup all in one night is rare. Pete Tong is booked up for another Ibiza residency this summer, so expect this legendary figure within the scene to bring in fresh Balearic vibes from the Spanish island to Squamish.
Acts to watch (If you want to hear new music)
Gramatik: Earlier this year Gramatik released "The Age Of Reason", a 15 track album for absolutely free. The album is funky and filled with chunky basslines and plenty of guitar riffs to keep you entertained. If you want to hear an artist that brings together soul, hip hop, electro, and bass music elements together, then check out Gramatik.
