Alongside Billboard Award winners Third Eye Blind, industry veterans Weezer will be headlining the festival. Whether attendees are longtime fans of their infamous Blue Album or their latest multi-album music project, SZNZ, fans won’t be disappointed.
Concert-goers can also expect great local retailers, live music, and impressive food and beverage options from local food trucks, craft beer, wine tastings, and more, including community activations, focused on giving back to the West Vancouver neighbourhood that has embraced the festival over the years.
Last year, over $500,000 in tickets were donated to front-line healthcare workers, and over the coming weeks, GSL Group is looking forward to sharing more details on how they intend to give back this year.
Lineup UPDATE: Los Angeles indie pop band Saint Motel will return to Vancouver for the first time since 2016 to play at Ambleside Music Festival this summer. Fresh off the latest EP 90s “American Superstar,” singer-songwriter and indie pop sensation Wallice has also been added, alongside Juno award-winning Canadian rock superstars Finger Eleven, to amp up the nostalgia.
