Cumberland Village Park, B.C.
The first ever Atmosphere gathering is fast approaching.
We are bringing a big vision to a small village: Creating a festival that features not just a stellar lineup but also a complete display of local food, art, visuals, and culture.
Situated in the quaint and funky village of Cumberland, Atmosphere goers can enjoy the close proximity to the waterpark (right beside us) and Comox Lake, which has additional camping and will be running shuttles. There are also all of the sweet offerings that the downtown Cumberland shops, eateries and pubs have to offer.
We’ve strived to infuse this festival with that village vibe. The Gourmet Girls have put together a tantalizing community meal plan featuring local food. We’re inviting people to bring their own plates and utensils to minimize the footprint of this event.
Also, Harmonic Arts will be serving up a wide array of elixirs and tonics to quench your thirst and get you in the dancing mood, which you’ll need to do because as we mentioned, the lineup is off the hook!
We’ve got Chali 2na and Blackalicious to tickle your hip-hop bone. We have Gaudi, A Tribe Called Red and Desert Dwellers for music from around the world that will send you into orbit… and then there’s the raw and primal blues from Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer, the sweet crooning of Erica Dee, and the dynamic throat singing of Tanya Tagaq. Accompanying the musical forces will be the visual mastery of Wax Candy, who will transform spaces into other worlds with their light magic.
We will also have other-realm painter Autumn Skye creating live paintings, and more that will make you wonder if the main gate wasn’t a rabbit hole after all.
If you’ve been following the #ProjectIntent story online, you’ll know about our special guest arriving from overseas to make her debut at this gathering. She’s larger than life and a bit over the top. The Big Top, that is. She is our community’s new circus tent and she has travelled across the Atlantic to show you a really good time.
It’s time to dust off your tutus, wake up your inner circus child, get your souls shined and your feet primed, because your date with the dance floor is almost here!
