A two-day multi-band event is set to take the stage at Langford’s Starlight Stadium in early September.
All Ways Home presented by The Zone 91.3 will feature some of Victoria’s best bands, such as Current Swell, Jesse Roper, and Jon & Roy, between Saturday, September 4th and Sunday, September 5th.
Among the headliners is First Nations hip-hop duo, Snotty Nose Rez Kids.
The festival will offer 14 performances throughout the weekend with a 5,000 person capacity. Canadians bands such as Whitehorse, Carmanah, Old Soul Rebel, Fleece, Pastel Blank are also scheduled to perform.
Drummer for Old Soul Rebel, Michael Wilford, a Smithers-born Victoria-local chatted with Victoria Buzz about the triumphant return of music festivals on Vancouver Island.
“I think returning to live music, and having all the bands be somewhat local, is a great move for the people in town. The lineup is great and it’s nice to see the city support local,” said Wilford.
“The one thing that came from the pandemic was the fact that we all, out of necessity, needed to reach out to our community. I know that was one thing that I did, so playing to my community at this event is going to be special.”
Services available will be VIP access, free bike lock-up, and shuttle bus service between Victoria and the Langford festival grounds.
The Westhills ‘Starlight’ Stadium houses the Pacific FC and the venue offers washrooms for patrons, covered seating for festival patrons who wish to sit, and a comfortable artificial turf and several shade tents to stay comfy.
General admission tickets are $125 and tickets for children 12 and under are $95.
Tickets go on sale August 4th at 10 a.m.
