In one week the entire Betty and Kora team will be packing up the old camper and heading on a 14 hour road trip for our first FozzyFest experience. Located outside of Fernie B.C., September 18-21, 2014, FozzyFest is celebrating their tenth year as a small but mighty electronic music festival with attendance hovering just over one thousand patrons. Word on the street is that FozzyFest is one of the best boutique festivals around and we’re looking forward to jumping in head first.
We had the chance to ask Raz Rydstrom, one of FozzyFests Coordinators a few questions about what to expect as we embark on our first trip. This is what he had to say:
The festival has grown organically every year since, simply by word-of-mouth. Everyone at FozzyFest is a friend of a friend, making it so easy to meet new people because everyone you meet there is already close to someone you know! This also results in a very safe and mellow environment, in which we have not had a single major security or health issue in nine years.
The festival evolved over the years to include more stages, a chill tent and a third night of entertainment. But one thing has remained constant – our love of great music! We strive to offer our fans access to the best local up-and-coming talent as well as featuring your favorite acts from back in the day.
(This is the first time we’ve held FozzyFest in September, or I’d be recommending sunscreen and shade structure, might be recommending people bring onesies).
Raz: Personally for me, LongWalkShortDock, Marten Horger, Joel West, JPod, 8Bit Ninja, Jenn Frost, BassPanda just to name a few 🙂
