Yes, the yoga is an integral part of the Wanderlust experience, but as co-founder Sean Hoesse has explained, the festival was founded as a mix of yoga retreat and music festival.
While the music components of Wanderlust festivals have historically been ticketed, the Resort Municipality of Whistler has contributed $100,000 of the Resort Municipality Initiative (RMI) funds to provide most of Wanderlust Whistler's musical offerings free (!) of charge.
There are other musical acts performing this year as part of certain yoga workshops and other events accessible only to "Yoga Plus" ticket holders. The artists listed below can be accessed and enjoyed by the general public. All shows are free, unless otherwise noted.Friday, 7 p.m. & Saturday, 8:30 p.m., Olympic Plaza Main Stage
The yoga-loving, humanity-embracing, dreadlock-sporting frontman for Spearhead has been a staple of previous Wanderlusts and past Whistler festivals, so it only makes sense that he'd bring his celebratory funk-rock through town this weekend.
