Starbelly Jam Music Festival is days away from inviting festival goers back to Crawford Bay Park for another great weekend of music.
As the event organizers prepare for their 14th festival, they are proud to call themselves the Kootenay’s #1 all-ages music festival.
If you don’t believe it, maybe the long list of musicians and performers will help. This year’s line-up includes Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, Blue King Brown, Mexico City’s Antidoping, Aesop Rock with Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz, Kimya Dawson, Buckman Coe, and more.
This year’s festival will also showcase a great selection of Kootenay talent such as Cranbrook’s The Good Ol’ Goats, Nelson’s DJ Rippel with LA’s Droop Capone, Swing Theory, Bessie and the Back Eddies and Tofu Stravinsky, Creston’s Tiizak Hamra, and the East Shore’s own Tipi Camp Tribute Ensemble and The Arcane Garden.
But what makes Starbelly Jam the ultimate all-ages festival is the activities and entertainment for the younger attendees.
Watch for the Rainbow Cirque Tent on the festival grounds where Starchild Entertainment will be gathering kids throughout the weekend for shows and parades. There will also be a crafting extravaganza in the kids’ crafts area, the Rainbow Country bubble blowing zone and misting station, and lots of workshops and fun for kids young and old all weekend.
“Planning entertainment for the kids and teens that come out to Starbelly is just as important to us as making sure there are great musical acts for the adults,” said Lea Belcourt, Starbelly’s artistic director. “That’s what makes us the Kootenay’s best all-ages festival, we are trying to create the best experience for everyone that comes through the gates. “Even though the festival is just days away it is not too late to pick up tickets.
