Wapiti Releases 2019 Lineup and Opens Ticket Sales

It may be March 1, and the snow is still flying but many of us have our eyes set on summer! A big part of summer in Fernie is Wapiti Music Festival. Voted Best Cultural Event in the 2018 Fernie Fix: Best of Fernie Survey, this event not only brings a variety of exciting Canadian music to our backyard, it creates such an energetic and positive vibe for all in attendance and most importantly, a strong sense of community.

This year's lineup is exciting to say the least, and as always includes a little something for everyone. Talented singer-songwriters, twangy roots, energetic funk, harmonic folk, hich-octane rock, souful vocals, and so much more!

We got in touch with Chantel Vincent this morning, who has been a part of Wapiti since its inception. "Every year we focus on delivering an exceptionally talented and fun lineup. This year, we went all in for a tip to toe 'wow' experience," she said. "This year, we got you! We are going to rock, dance and slay! Be prepared to have the most fun in an uniquely Fernie setting!"

Thanks, Chan! We are SO looking forward to it, as usual!
