British Columbia’s Bass Coast music festival is taking its magical blend of experimental music and art on the road once again this spring. Visiting throughout the PNW with a stop in the Sonoran Desert, the tour will feature performances from the likes of Mat the Alien, Fort Knox Five and Bass Coast’s very own co-founder The Librarian and many more. The events will be in keeping with Bass Coast’s 2019 theme of “Duality” with sharp contrasts, brand-new and familiar sounds alike.
For some background, Bass Coast has secured itself a spot with the heavy-hitter transformational-type festivals in the PNW. This is no small accomplishment for a comparatively miniature gathering compared to the likes of Shambhala and other commercialized massives in Vancouver and Seattle etc. Its lineup, without fail, features niche and eclectic sounds from all over the world and has the favorable reputation of being a more “grown-up” music festival. In other words, if you want to well and truly tread off the beaten path, check it out!
Author’s note: I was pretty baffled by my first introduction to Righteous Rainbows of Togetherness’s music at Bass Coast 2017 myself. I dug it, but that group truly is otherworldly!
The North American tour brought its magic to Kamloops March 14th, will be stopping off in Calgary AB March 23, Portland, OR April 6 and Kelowna, BC April 19. The tour comes to a close in Tempe AZ on April 20. Tickets are available on the Bass Coast website and on the respective Facebook pages for the events.
