The Hootstock 2015 stage will see dozens of crowd-pleasing acts, including some of the best indie music in British Columbia.
The fourth annual music festival at the Old Bradley Creek School House near Forest Grove is set to rock July 24-26.
Close to 40 music, dance and spoken word artists are taking the stage throughout the three-day festival.
“It’s just got better and better,” organizer Steve Roy of the festival says, adding this year’s lineup is “pretty fresh,” while some popular acts are returning.
Roy mentions some premier artists to see this year, such as psychedelic funk bands The Party on High Street from Victoria and Saturn Alien from Montreal, as well as the Fort St. John-based roots duo, Twin Peaks.
He also mentions the return of magician Jesaja Class from Nemiah Valley, and the addition of some fire dancers.
“There will be a little bit of everything for people,” Roy adds. “I would say it’s the best of any small festival in British Columbia.”
Vegetarian food vendors are on site, which is located close to 16-kilometres past Forest Grove.
