If you haven’t already heard about this, then you have clearly missed the billions of adverts on Facebook and Google promoting it to Whistlerites. Though we are grateful for these little ads, as without them, many peeps may not have heard about this gem of a gig. Which in all likelihood is going to tear open the summer for many.

The concert brings a host of world, reggae, hip hop, and electronic acts to Whistler Olympic Park from July 11th to 15th. Headline acts include Julian Marley and The Uprising, Liquid Stranger and Luminaries (not to be confused with The Lumineers of the ‘Hey Ho’ variety.) The full line up is huge so be sure to check it out.

Tickets for the event are $105 per day, $185 for the weekend or $263.50 for the 5 days. There are also tons of competitions for free tickets so make sure to be in to win.
