Best Damn Music Festival postponed due to reinstated COVID-19 restrictions

The province’s re-instated public health restrictions, announced last week, have prompted organizers of The Best Damn Music Festival to postpone the event.

Slated for September 10-11, the event is now being planned for August 12-13, 2022. Fans can expect to see crowd favourites return for the new dates including headliners Brett Kissel and Dean Brody. The rest of the lineup will be announced soon.


The increasing and new restrictions laid out by health officials due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the Northern Health region have made running the event in a safe and successful manner impossible, say organizers.
