Kulth fest this weekend

It’ll be a music-lover’s feast this weekend, as the new Kulth Music Festival fills the Coombs Rodeo grounds with over 35 artists, both international and local.

The festival’s headliners include Ron Sexsmith, Stars, Current Swell and Aidan Knight, with festival organizers determined to offer something “interesting” with each and every act.

Kulth (pronounced coolth) takes its name from the Coast Salish peoples who called Mount Arrowsmith “Kulth-Ka-Choolth” meaning “jagged face.”

Besides reggae, world music, folk, electronic and blues there will be an array of children’s entertainers, including a Bobs and Lolo Disco Party and Will Stroet and the Backyard Band.

The Kulth Music Festival takes place July 16 and 17.

A weekend pass is $135 for adults, $100 for youth, $65 for seniors and kids 12 and under are free. Single day tickets are also available. For more information on the festival visit www.thekulth.ca.
