Live at Squamish 2011: Schedule

Comments 22 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The second annual Live at Squamish music festival kicks off in about 48 hours as thousands prepare for good times in a field and a fun-filled schedule of music and activities. Whether you’re camping out, staying in Squamish or Whistler, or just heading up for a day, the festival should have something for you. From DJ’s and dancing to food truck eats and open air rock. The full schedule was recently released as well as a special treat for Friday in case any keeners want to get a preview of the grounds.

Some quick tips: Do bring a blanket, your own picnic (no bigger than a lunchbox), water (in a container no more than 1.5 litres), a camera (just not professional size if you’re not accredited media) and a smile and your dancin’ shoes. Do not bring chairs, BBQ’s frisbees, umbrellas, all the regular pointy/dangerous weaponry type stuff, laser pointers, fireworks and the like. There are in-and-out privileges and pass-holders will get wrist-bands for the weekend. The site is also smoke free.

If you haven’t secured on-site parking then you can park in downtown Squamish and take the free shuttle to the festival off Cleveland Ave. There is also a free bike valet for those who cycle in.

    Great line-up of talent again this year. It will be the concert of the summer. Forecasts say the weather will cooperate too. It just doesn’t get any better than that.
