Where the Wild Things will be…


The Bass Coast Project is back with a special Halloween party. This crew hosted an epic music festival on the banks of the Squamish River during the summer and this time around, the Bass Coast girls are back with a one-night-only spooky banger for the goblins and ghouls.

There will be two stages set up - one, a massive tee pee that will echo with funk, electro, house, fidget and bounce, courtesy of DJs like Chunky Chornz, Shamik, Just Sheila, Lon Flath and Kori K, and the other stage in the Cookhouse, which will feature crunk, dancehall, hip hop, dubstep and techno beats cooked up by Tank Girl, Shamik, The Librarian, Ronin, Michael Red, Max Ulis and Self Evident. On top of the indoor heated spaces, there will also be a bonfire and activities outside.

It all goes down at the Sea to Sky Stables, five minutes outside of Squamish, on Saturday, Oct. 31, starting at 9 p.m.

This is a 19-plus event, with a cash bar on premises (no outside alcohol permitted), and camping is available.

Contact bcp@basscoastproject.com for more information. Tickets are not being sold at the gate, so get them ahead of time!


Monster Massive, Part V

The Solar Tribe crew is gearing up to make their fifth annual epic Halloween bash better than ever, with an incredible lineup of local talent covering the spectrum of electro, breaks, drum 'n' bass and dubstep. So far, Tone, Justy Just, Jimi Ray, Aron, Fareal, Mixmaster Fab, Phroh and Bullet Bill are on-board to rock the costumed crowd all night long.

The party kicks off at Merlin's on Saturday, Oct. 31 at 10 p.m., but doesn't really wrap up until 8 a.m. the next day (ticket holders also get access to the top-secret after party, which is hosted at a separate location).

At this sold-out annual event, costumes are mandatory and prizes will be awarded throughout the night to funniest, scariest and sexiest costumes.

Tickets are $25, and are available at F as in Frank.


Arts in the dark

The funky local artists' gallery, Transition Space, is offering art lovers a special sensory experience with their upcoming exhibition, dubbed Lights Out.

While the visual arts are often only experienced with the naked eye, Andrea Mueller, curator of Transition Space, is hoping to create a new sensory experience by blacking out the windows at the gallery and turning off the lights, only allowing art lovers to use source light to illuminate the artwork.
