More than 30 acts performing on two stages have been booked for the fifth annual Hootstock Music Festival taking place in Forest Grove July 22 to 24, says event organizers Astrid Hensey.

“This year’s lineup will include some great bands, from the heavy rockin’ music of Ninjaspy and local favourites Tax Free Liquor, to the really cool world music of Entandagos, and the funky get down band from Victoria, The Party on High Street,” Hensey says.

Hootstock takes place in the Old Bradley Creek Schoolhouse on Eagle Creek Road and will offer something for everyone’s taste, from punk to funk, from folk to EDM, dancers and poets, she adds.

She says Hootstock is known for having some great food vendors and this year will be no different with offerings of vegetarian and vegan dishes, pizza, crepes, tacos, barbecue and more.

There will be a static art display in the old schoolhouse with some exceptional art from local and visiting artists as well as some really cool band merchandise.

“For anyone that hasn’t been out to the festival check it out this year they will find a family friendly, relaxed atmosphere, with some really cool vibes,” Hensey says.

Tickets are available at The Guitar Seller in Williams Lake, Nuthatch Books in 100 mile House, and online at hootstock.com.
