Views of Bass Coast Music Festival 2022

The music was pounding and the night lit up again last weekend as the 2022 Bass Coast Music Festival was celebrated in Merritt.

“It’s been an incredibly successful and very, very special weekend, so we’re beyond thrilled to be here,” said Bass Coast co-founder Andrea Graham.

“Everyone who came seemed so grateful to be together again, to be here in Merritt, on this earth again, and also to be able to experience art, music and community because we all missed it. “

6,500 festival-goers witnessed 130 musical acts, 57 stunningly designed art installations, and seven live artists creating art, from murals to crafts.

For the past two years, the annual electronic music festival has been closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. This was the 14th edition of the festival and its eighth appearance at Merritt. Graham said the organization is always looking to improve year after year.

“From a producer’s perspective, we’re constantly thinking about how we can improve things for next year,” she explained.

“The music was just amazing all weekend, the art installations were stunning. The goal for next year is to continue to grow in these areas while maintaining a capped and boutique experience.
