LIVE at Squamish rocks Howe Sound

If it’s a good ol’ fashion, hip swinging, booty bouncing, groove jiving time you are looking for, then you better pencil in next year’s Live at Squamish music festival dates. This year offered a plethora of talented musicians performing in front of Squamish’s epic backdrop, the Stawamus Chief.

Crowds assemble in front of the Stawamus Stage, which saw performances from a number of artists including The Tragically Hip, Wintersleep, Kathleen Edwards, and City and Colour.

Undoubtedly one of the highlights of the festival, at least for the group of Quest students gathered at the Garibaldi Stage, was soul man Charles Bradley. At age 64, Bradley pulled out some unruly dance moves worthy of a 1950’s inner-city Chicago dance club. Just see for yourself:

Only in its third year of existence, Live at Squamish continues to grow. Organizers estimated between 10,000 to 12,000 festival goers entered the grounds on Saturday evening, the event’s biggest night. For many Quest students, Live at Squamish is turning into a milestone event, celebrating the end of summer and the beginning of another epic school year. What better way to welcome yourself back to Squamish than to bask in the sun and soak up some tunes with your friends?
