Wolfe Island Music Festival 2010 – Only Two Weeks Away!
Holy smokes – can you believe it? The 2010 Wolfe Island Music Festival is less than two weeks away. August 6th & 7th will see a ton of great bands coming to the lovely town of Marysville on Wolfe Island (just a short ferry ride away from Kingston) and if you don’t have your tickets yet you better get on it.
Despite my good intentions, I have totally neglected to say anything about it so far. I know, I’ve kinda dropped the ball. But you already know about the festival, right? It is one of the best in the country with amazing music and great, laidback vibe. The food is good, the beer is good (Beau’s is a sponsor which is fantastic and the entire balldiamond area is licensed so no beer tent ghetto), and there are always cool vendors.
There are no shortage of great acts on the bill this year. I am really looking forward to seeing Think About Life and Shad as well as Memoryhouse and Flotilla, none of whom I have seen before. Weakerthans, Cuff the Duke, and Diamond Rings I have seen before multiple times and I know they are going to bring it. It should be great.
In case you hadn’t heard the line up or need a reminder here it is with links so you can check out the bands.
SATURDAY, AUG 7
And here’s a little something from last year’s WIMF featuring one of this year’s mainstage acts – Diamond Rings. John O joined PS I Love you to open for Woodhands at the General Wolfe. I was late to the show as I was at the Town Hall show, but I was able to hear them play the two songs from their (now sold out) split 7″. There is some crowd chatter but I think the songs are too rad not to share.
See you at the Festival.
