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 Vampire Weekend Band Of Horses Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Childish Gambino Gogol Bordello Young The Giant Dan Mangan Divine Fits Pretty Lights Fitz and the Tantrums Jurassic 5 Said The Whale Yukon Blonde Diamond Rings Capital Cities Deap Valley The Heavy Reignwolf The Matinee A Tribe Called Red Basketball Bear Mountain Sktratch Bastid Dustin Bentall and the Smokes The Ballantynes The Funk Hunters Dear Rouge Jordan Klassen Dominique Fricot Gang Signs Nightbox The Chantrelles Grand Theft Fine Times Small Town DJs and More
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.
