BC BuzZ: Squamish Valley Music Festival – Pre Fest

It happens once a year in a small community halfway up the Sea-to-Sky highway. It has gone from 6000 people in it’s first year to upwards of 35,000 this year.  It has seen everyone from the unknowns of the rock world to the Eminem’s of the rap world. It is smack dab in the middle of mountains, forests and the ocean.  It is one my favourite Canadian events and it’s happening next weekend in our own backyard!

Squamish Valley Music Festival kicks off in only days and I got to sit back with the creator himself Paul Runnals to chat about what to expect at this year’s party.

Get ready BC for some happy times, in a big field with some awesome music. Eminem, Bruno Mars, Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys, The Roots, Nas and about 70 other musicians will headline this sweet event in Squamish.

Also keep your eye out for a post Squamish episode with Vancouver is Awesome’s Christine McAvoy!!
