Bass Coast Festival Moves

The electronic music festival announces new location for 2013



The Bass Coast Music Festival announced Monday that it will be moving the electronic music and arts event from its Squamish location to Merritt, B.C. for 2013.

"Relax in the heat, rejuvenate in the river. Dance in the shade of tall trees 2.5 hours from Vancouver," a video on the festival website says, describing the new location.

Tickets for the event's fourth installation — running from Aug. 2 to 5 — go on sale Feb. 20. For more information, visit www.basscoast.ca.
