Columbia Valley Arts Council is hosting the second annual Invermere Music Fest Outdoor Waterfront Music Festival at Kinsmen Beach on Sunday August 3rd from 12:30 to 11 pm
With the stage and Festival grounds set at the Kinsmen Beach Greenspace and Lake Windermere as a backdrop, the Invermere MusicFest: Waterfront Music Festival will be a memorable, entertaining and edgy musical experience for our Columbia Valley residents and visitors.
Our Fest music line-up covers a great x-section of music genres…here is a tease & taste! Our headliner, The Boom Booms, a Vancouver-based band will entice you get up and dance, connecting & identifying with all ages. Also featuring, the Harpoonist & Axe Murderer, armed with a sack of harmonicas, a mess of foot percussion instruments and decades-deep of blues, soul and funk. The River and the Road band is built on a spirited folk form of sincere storytelling, mixed with strong harmonies, heavy percussion breakdowns, and dynamic arrangements. To round out the full music experience is Kelly Lee Evans, a beautiful and talented jazz singer that focuses on soul and hip-hop, sure to get you up and grooving. The five other local & B.C. based bands, The Good Ol’ Goats, Sheberdean, Otters, Dandelions & Emaline Delapaix will complete the 2014 Fest line-up.
CV Arts mandate is to support our valley musicians with the opportunity to perform on the side stage. With this eclectic lineup of musical genres, the Invermere MusicFest is sure to attract all music lovers.
The MusicFest Food & Refreshment Village featuring Arrowhead Brewery serving their tasty, fresh & local brews, along with BC Based Tinhorn Creek Wines, sharing their fantastic flavors of summer-time Festival-time! Several Food Vendors & a mix of Artisan booths will make up the Village to satisfy your bellies and creative-side.
The seating set-up is Festival Style…bring your own seating and blankets! There will be plenty of space to spread out blankets and festival chairs with several bleachers strategically placed throughout the festival grounds. We’ve had a conversation with Mother Nature; sunshine and blue skies are confirmed! BYO Shelter areas will be set up for those festival-goers coming for the whole day.
Without our ongoing support from local businesses and organizations, these types of events would not be possible for CV Arts to support the local music scene. Sponsorship opportunities are available by calling 250.342.4423
