Squamish Constellation Festival says this is the “first wave” of participating artists they are announcing, with more names to be released soon.

Taking place on Hendrickson Field, Squamish, the three-day festival will be a “celebration of music, art, food and so much fun,” said Tamara Stanners, one of four Squamish-based festival directors, in a media release.

Constellation will also offer attendees visual, live, and interactive art during the event. On site will be food trucks, as well as local beverages and brews from the region. Enjoy your food picnic-style, wander the marketplace, and take part in a legacy art creation.

Early bird general admission passes are available on March 6 and 7, with a presale code shared on the fest’s social media channels (@constellationfestival on Instagram is one). Regular passes go on sale for full price at 10 am on Friday, March 8.

“The vision of bringing a music festival back to the Sea to Sky is a real labour of love for us, and is now becoming a dream come true,” adds Stanners.
