With past lineups including Blackalicious, Ron Sexsmith, Harry Manx, The Coup and The Cave Singers, it was difficult to imagine how Starbelly Jam Music Festival organizers would out-do themselves — but with the full lineup announced and advance tickets selling quickly, Starbelly Jam 2013 could be the best yet.

This year’s lineup includes musical acts from across Canada and around the world, including the Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, Kimya Dawson, Australia’s Blue King Brown, Aesop Rock with Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz, Locarno, Shane Philip, Buckman Coe Band and Portland’s Shook Twins.

Though Starbelly Jam is focused on bringing outstanding international talent to Crawford Bay, the lineup also showcases some of the best Kootenay talent like Cranbrook’s the Good Ol’ Goats, Nelson’s Bessie and the Back Eddies, and Tofu Stravinsky.

“We’ve really got a great mix of everything this year,” said artistic director Lea Belcourt. “From hip hop to blue grass and folk, I really think there is something for everyone at this year’s festival.”

Advance tickets are on sale now until July 18 and are available online at starbellyjam.org.

Starbelly Jam goes July 19 to 21 in Crawford Bay Park.
