The City of Squamish announced yesterday that it will be hosting a two-day summer music festival.

Live at Squamish will take place over the Labour Day Weekend at the Logger Sports Grounds and Hendrickson Fields. It will feature more than 20 local and international recording artists appearing on three stages.

Some of the acts scheduled to appear include Devo, Tokyo Police Club, the Tennessee Three, Bad Religion and Mother Mother.

Squamish Mayor Greg Gardner said he’s hoping the festival grows.

“Absolutely and that is the intention, that we would build upon this first year and the event would get larger each and every year.”

There will also be an artisans’ and First Nations’ Village with art installations and live performances. All tickets are general admission and go on sale June 25. There is a $125 early-bird weekend price in effect until July 9. Single-day tickets are $79 and kids under 12 are free when accompanied by an adult.
