Here you will find all you need to know about one of the newest and coolest grass roots, multi-genre Music Festivals in BC! Held in the heart of the pristine and remote Robson Valley (see attached map for details), this new Festival had its inaugural presentation Aug.25th-26th, 2005. Attendance was around the 300 mark and bands from all over the region and from as far away as Smithers and Calgary were present. Our headliners included the Juno -award winner," Youssou Seck"accompanied by Latin guitar maestro: "Manuel Jara" and percussionist extraordinaire: "Brent Van dusin".
The Festival was a whopping success having been thrown together by a very small group of committed volunteers in just 5 weeks!

The Robson Valley Music Festival is held on the land of Touring and recording artists:"Mamaguroove" in particular, Seth and Shara's place. LA few years ago, with the help of a few friends and Seth's dad, Dave, these crazy cats decided to turn what was supposed to be a small gathering of family and friends into a full fledged festival! They (We) ran all details themselves on a non-existent budget, counting on ticket sales at the gate to pull them through! Everything from stage sound and lighting to security to Shara's amazing cuisine at The Performer's Hospitality Kitchen was provided by the family with help from a handful of travelers and close friends. Bands all agreed to donate their performance services in exchange for unequaled hospitality and good times! We even had a samba drumming and dancing workshop for the kids! The result, albeit exhausting to the organizers, was an intimate close gathering celebrating incredible local, regional and international talent and linking our remote, rural community to the wider world of performance art.
After all was said and done, we knew we had to keep going, there was a spirit of fellowship and excitement in the community which had been missing for a long time. This year with the creation of "The Robson Valley Music Society", we are moving full steam ahead to create a bigger and better Festival while still holding onto the intimate feel and exotic setting which so many city Festivals lack! In the spirit of other great northern Festivals such as "The Kispiox Music Festival", "The Midsummer Music Festival", and "Edge of the World" to name a few, we are striving to offer attendees from near and far one of the most incredibly powerful presentations of live entertainment, in one of the most pristine environments in the west! Don't miss your chance to become part of the birth of a legend! Explore the rest of the site and buy your tickets soon, while supplies last! Attendance is limited to 1000 people.
