Nov 18 2019, 1:35 pm

Hot on the heels of its inaugural fest this past summer, organizers of the Squamish Constellation Festival have announced the event will officially be returning Hendrickson Field for the summer of 2020.

“Our first year was a dream come true – for the fans, the artists, and all levels of production – we exceeded everyone’s expectations and we can’t wait to do it all again next summer,” said festival co-founder and CEO Tamara Stanners. “Excitement has been building for the 2020 festival since before the first one even wrapped.”

The festival is slated to take place from July 24 to 26, 2020, and early-bird passes are available for $159 (plus service charges and fees) beginning this Thursday, November 21, at 10 am.

Layaway options are available, and there are five tiers of weekend pass price points, starting with the ones on sale this Thursday. Once those are gone, fans can buy weekend passes for $179 until December 31. Beyond that date, the final early-bird price goes up to $199. The sale ends February 28, 2020.

“For all those who enjoyed our ‘local’s presale’ last year, we want to let you know how much we appreciate your early support,” said Stanners. “You showed us that we were on the right track – that Squamish really does love its festivals and we were right to believe you’d be there to support a new one.”

With the creation of the Squamish Constellation Festival, Stanners furthered, “we’ve evened the playing field for all music and art lovers this year because – as you’ve proven – this truly is a Squamish festival for locals by locals.”

Stanners said this year’s lineup will be announced following the conclusion of early-bird tickets, once general admission tickets go on sale – starting at $239. A three-day pass at the gate will cost $279.

Organizers said plans for this year’s festival include approximately 40 bands, mural painting, a songwriting workshop with elite artists, and much, much more.
