I love when festivals announce their lineups, I especially love when local festivals announce theirs.
For those of you who don’t know the festival formerly known at Live At Squamish is now called Squamish Valley Music Festival. This year it runs August 8th, 9th and 10th.
About 10 minutes ago, they announced the official lineup for their 2013 installment, and it is a little bit of awesomeness. Check it out:
Queens Of The Stone Age
Band Of Horses
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Young The Giant
Fitz and the Tantrums
Said The Whale
A Tribe Called Red
Dustin Bentall and the Smokes
The Funk Hunters
Small Town DJs
Now that is a nice lineup. I mean you have the obvious first level of awesome with QOTSA, Vampire Weekend and Band Of Horses. Then you look deeper and see Childish Gambino, and Divine Fits, and your brain starts to malfunction just a little. But then you look deeper and see Gogol Bordello, Diamond Rings, and Young The Giant, and that is when things start to tingle.
The peeps over at the SVMF have really kicked it up a notch. This year’s lineup is going to cause a sell out for sure, make sure you get out and buy your tickets early.
