Squamish Festival 2014 Contest

Bruno Mars

When Live Nation and brand.Live announced the lineup for this year’s Squamish Fest, the internet went wild in anticipation of Eminem, Bruno Mars, Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys, Felix Cartal, The Roots and many, many more.

Now in its fifth year, the Squamish Valley Music Festival’s venue area is significantly larger than previous years – from 30 acres to 81 acres on Centennial Fields – and is expected to welcome over 35,000 fans per day (up from 19,000 per day in 2013) from across the continent.

Squamish Valley Music Festival has engaged Blueprint Events, western Canada’s leading Electronic Dance Music (EDM) promoter, to curate the Festival’s newly redesigned EDM arena.

The event is also expanding its use of an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) enabled wristband system. Ticketholders will receive their RFID wristband via registered mail in the weeks leading up the event and must register online to activate it. The RFID system will allow for smoother, more efficient access at gates, faster processing for all onsite transactions and will allow Festival staff to better assist guests.

Virgin Mobile Members pre-sale starts Monday, February 3 at 10 a.m. and ends Thursday, February 5 at 4 p.m. Members who purchase a Festival pass will receive a $20 credit applied to their RFID wristband, while quantities last.
