Canada’s best damn country music artists are coming to Prince George for a new festival, suitably titled: The Best Damn Music Festival! The two-day outdoor event will take place at the Exhibition Grounds at CN Centre on Friday September 10 and Saturday September 11, with tickets going on sale at TicketsNorth.ca today.
The event will feature headliners Brett Kissel on Friday night, and Dean Brody on Saturday night, and will include artists like The Reklaws, The Washboard Union, High Valley, Tyler Joe Miller, and more.
“We wanted to bring live music back to northern B.C. in a big way,” said Kyle Sampson, Festival Promoter and Event Manager. “When we received word that the Provincial Government was easing the Covid-19 restrictions in a way that would allow for us to gather again safely, we knew that waiting until next summer to hold a music festival just wouldn’t cut it! People all over the world have been extremely patient while doing their part to minimize the spread of the virus, and now that it is safe to gather again outdoors, we knew our chance was now before we get into winter, rather than waiting until next summer which would mean another whole year for Northerners to get out and party! This event has been created and designed during the pandemic, and with the pandemic in mind, we are meeting and exceeding all of the current restrictions and requirements and we are intending to put on one heck of a party that gives folks a chance to celebrate once again, but safely and within the current government restrictions.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to be joined by some of the biggest and best names in Canadian Country Music! To have the likes of Brett Kissel on Friday night, and Dean Brody on Saturday night, and will include artists like The Reklaws, The Washboard Union, High Valley, and Tyler Joe Miller on our stage, I think makes this one of, if not the biggest music festival ever to hit Northern BC and we’re really excited to be bringing the best in country music to Prince George,” said Sampson.
