Put on your energy dome headgear - DEVO is coming to Squamish.
The band, of the 1980 New Wave classic Whip It, will play the Live at Squamish festival over the Labour Day weekend (Sept. 4-5). The festival lineup was announced Monday.
The lineup also includes: The Decemberists, Matthew Good, We Are The City, Z-Trip, The Dudes, Tokyo Police Club, Dirty Vegas (LIVE), Civil Twilight, Tom Middleton, Bad Religion, Kevin Shiu, Hollerado, Dirty Heads, Rich Hope, Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, Jon and Roy. More artists will be revealed over the coming weeks.
Early bird tickets for the festival are $125 until July 9. Regular tickets are $145 or $79 for a day-pass. VIP tickets are $249 and include access to the main stage VIP area (for those 19+ only), early access to the site through a VIP entrance and one on-site reserved parking space per two VIP tickets. Kids under 12 get in free when accompanied by an adult.
All tickets go on sale Friday, June 25, 10 a.m.
Paul Reynolds, Co-owner and senior vice president of brand.LIVE, the Vancouver-based production company throwing the event, told Pique last week that they're showcasing a collective of slightly underground artists for this year's festival, rather than boast a series of headliners similar to the Pemberton Festival.
The festival will take place at the Loggers Sports Grounds and Hendrickson Fields in Squamish. The site will feature three stages and has a capacity of 13,000 but Reynolds said he expects between 8,000 and 10,000 people per day.
