The 32nd annual Vancouver Folk Music Festival returns to Jericho Beach Park July 17-19, 2009 and I’d love to send one lucky reader (and a friend) to experience it all. The Festival includes vendors, a market, and plenty of entertainment from latin ska to swing and trance blues…
… The Proclaimers (Scotland)
… The Weakerthans (BC)
… Joe Pug (US)
… Steven Page (ON)
… Reverend Peytonâ€™s Big Damn Band (US)
… Pacifika (BC)
… Iron and Wine (US)
… Great Lake Swimmers (ON)
… and dozens more.
Things kick off the evening of the 17th at 4:00pm, and concerts run Friday (5:00pm to 11:00pm), then Saturday & Sunday (10:00am to 11:00pm).
Tickets for the entire weekend, or just a single day, are available for purchase online, and also over at Highlife Records, Neptoon Records, Zulu Records, Little Sisters Bookstore, and Banyen Books.
If you would like to attend the Vancouver Folk Music Festival on behalf of Miss604.com, please leave a comment or re-tweet this post (using the link http://tr.im/604folkfest). I’ll draw a winner by Friday, July 10th who will receive a full weekend pass for themselves and a guest.
Update: The contest is now closed. I have drawn a winner and you can view this video to see who it was….
