This summer brings the return of the 3rd annual Wapiti Music Festival to Fernie, offering some of the best indie music Canada has to offer.  This is truly a special, Canadian music festival, as the Wapiti Music Festival has built itself on the foundation of creating a festival that showcases fresh, local, homegrown talent found in our very own backyards.
This year’s lineup features incredible indie acts such as Plants and Animals, Current Swell, and Inlet Sound, as well as many other excellent artists who are sure to fill your summer music playlist.  Get your festival schedule here so you can plan your best Wapiti experience.
In addition to unbelievable talent, the Wapiti Music Festival also offers one of the most beautiful backdrops to your musical listening experience, as it is held annually at the Annex Park in Fernie, located right next to the beautiful Elk River.  What could be better than relaxing in the beautiful summer sun nestled amongst the gorgeous Rocky Mountains while being serenaded by your favourite independent artists?
This year’s festival runs from August 9th to 10th, with gates opening at 6pm on Friday and noon on Saturday.  Entire weekend passes are available for the excellent low price of $75, and special tiered lower price tickets are still available.  Children 12 and under are offered free admission, as well as seniors over the age of 65.  Even if regular tickets have sold out, children and seniors are still offered admission regardless, as the event is planned around park capacity, making this a great event for families.  Be sure to get your tickets soon, as this is a musical event you do not want to miss!
