One of Edmonton’s biggest music festivals is coming back in 2018.
The Northern Lights Music Festival, a two-day event taking place over Easter long weekend, has just announced its 2018 lineup, and they’ve definitely outdone themselves this year.
- These were the most popular Canadian travel destinations in 2017
- The viral 'sexy Canadian Mermen' calendar raised $300,000 for mental health
- These are Canada's hottest cities for millennials in 2018
The hip hop duo Rae Sremmurd headlines the list of talented artists, along with special guest Zhu, who broke into the electronic music scene with his 2014 hit Faded.
Making up the rest of the line up is Mura Masa, Petit Biscuit, Smokepurpp, What So Not, Giraffage, Drezo, Said the Sky, Tails, and So Loki.
The festival will run from Friday, March 30 to Saturday, March 31, and tickets go on sale this Thursday.
Tickets are $129.50 for two day general admission, or you can go with the VIP package for $179.50, which provide access closer to the stage and a VIP only bar.
The event is 18+, so you’ll need valid ID to get in, and once you’re inside, there’s no in and out privileges – though there will be food, beverage, and merch services available inside.
A full list of acceptable or prohibited items can be found here.
Last year’s event sold out quick, so the sooner you grab your tickets, the better!
