Published May 03, 2015It's about that time of year for Vancouver bands to get wasted. Music Wasted, that is. Earlier tonight (May 2), organizers behind the city's long-running Music Waste festival revealed all of the locally minded acts that will be spreading the D.I.Y. spirit across town June 4 to 7.
An announcement party for the 21st edition of the fest was held earlier tonight at Vancouver's Toast Collective, which featured performances from Adrian Teacher and Kellarissa. The roster of Vancouver talent that will be playing Music Waste proper includes NEEDS, B-Lines, Peace, Skinny Kids, monashee, Taxa, Lesser Pissers, Inherit Vices, Shawn Mrazek Lives!, Woolworm, JP Carter, Energy Slime, Supermoon, Cave Girl, Mi'iens, Flowers & Fire, Magneticring, Sprïng and many more.
"Music Waste has a solid history of supporting and showcasing Vancouver's unique community of artists, and its great to see both familiar and new faces continue that tradition every year," fest organizer Mike Gittens said in a statement. "We're also excited to be working with some new venues this year, including the Lido and Whats Up? Hot Dog restaurant."
In addition to the official Music Waste events, there will once again be independently booked concerts run under the "Go Your Own Waste" banner. Art Waste adds various visual arts openings and exhibitions to the four-day fest.
A full-festival pass is currently on-sale at various local retailers for $15, while individual shows will cost $5 at the door.
