Get ready for rock, hip hop, reggae and electronica, Whistler folks, as the annual Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival brings you a lengthy, daily does of the good stuff from April 12 to 21. That is, music. Get your ears tuned, your shades out, and your sunblock on. Rain or shine, though, it’s all a go-ahead. The Jim Beam Outdoor Concert Series features free outdoor concerts daily from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the mainstage at the base of Whistler-Blackcomb. Some of these bands play at clubs that same evening. The Kokanee Freeride Concert Series also runs through the festival, bringing bands to 10 bars, for 10 parties, on 10 different nights.
