There’s not many places to see Arcade Fire and Eminem at the same place, but Canada is giving music fans one of them. The Squamish Valley Music Festival has announced its 2014 lineup for the festival taking place from August 8-10. The three day event takes place in Squamish, British Columbia, which is about 45 north of Vancouver. As one of the biggest music festivals in the northwest this summer, fans will have the ability to see artists of various genres over the three days.
Primary market Squamish Valley Music Festival tickets go on sale to the public on February 7th with a good chance of a sellout. If you miss out on the original sale, TicketIQ is your best place to find tickets on the secondary market.
Arcade Fire, Eminem, and Bruno Mars top the lineup. Eminem just released a new album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, in November, but has not gone on a full tour supporting the album. He hasn’t fully toured since 2009, only popping up occasionally at music festivals like this one. Speculation continues that he will go on a full tour, but for now this is the best, and one of the few, bets to see him perform live.
Bruno Mars will be touring North America from February to September following his halftime performance at this year’s Super Bowl. Tickets over the course of the tour have and average price of $324.85. Arcade Fire will also be touring this year with 35 dates spanning March until August. Arcade Fire tickets are slightly less expensive than Bruno Mars tickets with an average tour price of $184.53.
Other notable acts at the Squamish Valley Music Festival include Arctic Monkeys, Foster the People, Lykke Li, The Roots, Broken Bells, Danny Brown, Kevin Drew, Austra, Ryan Hemsworth, Thievery Corporation, and Atmosphere. The Head and the Heart, Sam Roberts Band, Mayer Hawthrone, Serena Ryder, Tokyo Police Club, Boys Noize, Gramatik, Lord Huron, Hollerado, Felix Cartal, Black Joe Lewis, Cyril Hahn, and Walk Off the Earth.
