Albatross Music Festival hits Hastings Racecourse this September

Jun 7 2017, 12:27 am

Albatross Music Festival is the first event of its kind to take place at the city’s oldest sporting facility, Hastings Racecourse.

The diverse festival is set to feature a massive lineup of international artists on Thursday, September 14 and Friday, September 15 at the sporting facility.

It’s not your average music festival, however, as many of the acts scheduled to perform have never played in Vancouver before. Many will be coming from Korea, China, Taiwan, and the US, especially for the festival. And yes, there will be some Canadian artists taking to the stage too.

Regardless of your taste in music, you’re sure to find something you’ll be able to dance to at Albatross with indie rock, hip-hop, reggae, and folk artists on the lineup.

An audience of 20,000 is anticipated for the festival. Early bird tickets are going on sale at 10 am on June 20, ranging from $99 to $149 each.

So far, Edison Chen, Hyukoh, Matzka, A Si, Eric Chou, Queen Wei, Ma Di, and Nair Band have been confirmed. And even more artists are set to be announced in the coming weeks.

“My vision for Albatross Music Festival is to provide more live music options for Vancouverites with international backgrounds, said Sammi Wei, founder and CEO of MUBI Entertainment.

“Alb [the festival’s mascot] represents the king of the seabirds, the albatross, who migrates back and forth between the east and west coast of the Pacific. Many Vancouverites identify with Alb; and I hope they will invite their friends to share this unique experience,” added Wei.

Albatross Music Festival is led by MUBI Entertainment Management Group Inc., a team of dedicated Vancouverites working in collaboration with international entertainment group Modern Sky and Hastings Racecourse.

Make sure to snap up your general or VIP experience ticket to Albatross from June 20 to avoid missing out on this monumental festival experience at Hastings Racecourse.
