In the January edition of the Mainstreet, there was an error in a price for the weekend passes at the gate. It read $14 and should have read $145. Apologies for any confusion. The correct version is below.

Starbelly Jam Music Society is excited to announce the 19th Starbelly Jam Festival will take place July 20-22 in Crawford Bay Park, Crawford Bay, BC.

Starbelly Jam 2017 was a remarkable success.  Attendance was one of the best on record.  All enjoyed the diverse musical line-up from local artists to artists from Europe and Africa.

Starbelly Jam’s success in 2017 can be attributed to many and Starbelly expresses thanks to all who contributed.  We would be amiss not to give special thanks to the 2017 Artistic Director, Will Chapman, and to outgoing Chair of the Board, Galadriel Rael, who has devoted herself for many years to the festival.

We are pleased to announce our new Chair is Lee Reidl, and the new co-Artistic Directors are Amanda Hulland and Ben Johnson. We are also pleased that long time team member Farley Cursons has accepted the position of Executive Director.

Ticket prices for 2018 have increased slightly for day passes, weekend passes, youth and senior passes. This makes it an even better deal to take advantage of our Early Bird and Advance ticket specials. What better Valentine’s Day gift than a Starbelly pass for your sweetie?
