Former member of A Tribe Called Red
DJ Shub, formerly of A Tribe Called Red, is a title earning DJ and award winning music producer. He lives in For Erie, Ontario and counts two DMC Canada DJ Championship titles (2007 and 2008), a DMC Canadian Battle for Supremacy title (2008), a Canadian Red Bull Thre3style title (2012), and a King of the Dot Canada vs. USA DJ battle win along with trophies from the JUNO Awards and the Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards as some of his most notable accomplishments.
Vancouver’s So Loki is comprised of rapper Sam Lucia and producer Geoff Millar. Their avant-garde sound refines itself with modern hip-hop, driven by their raw lyrical intensity. Their rise continues to be documented by Noisey and Complex as they set up to release their upcoming EP early 2018. So Loki has performed at major EDM and Hip Hop festivals in Western Canada including FVDED In The Park, Northern Lights Music Festival, and Snowbombing, among others.
Since their inception in 2013 Lovecoast has been delivering a new sound that won’t go unnoticed. By bringing “together modern day indie pop and blue-eyed ’70s R&B” (Ride the Tempo), the band has created something bouncy and infectious. Lovecoast finds inspiration in modern acts like the Cat Empire and Lake Street Dive, and classic legends such as Billie Holiday and Bruce Springsteen. Uniquely fresh and nostalgic all at once, Lovecoast is an up-and-coming act from the West Coast with origins in Squamish and will be a festival favourite.
JennaMae & The Groove Section
JennaMae was born in Winnipeg, raised in Calgary and cultivated her love for music in Whistler. She has become a local favorite in the sea to sky region after performing in countless venues in the area.
JennaMae is an honest artist with a raunchy edge who loves to defile and hide profanity with a sultry voice within her soulful music.
Howe Sound Secondary Jazz Band
Students from HSS will bring their local flare to the stage as the kick-off act to the musical festival portion of the event. These students represent the best of Squamish’s budding musical talent and are sure to bring the party with them.
