I know we’ve been really at it with the Tall Tree stuff, but how can you not be?! With a lineup that’s to die for and an amazing location, there’s really no other option for west coast fun with all your friends. Plus, now you have the opportunity to win a ticket of your own to the festival!
One of the best things about this festival is the amazing local talent it brings out. Some of the biggest examples are Victoria powerhouses Kyle Waddington aka The Funkee Wadd, and Ceddie Nagy aka Vortoozo. Both of them got their first big breaks at Tall Tree, and currently dominate the Victoria scene together with their now infamous #SorryNotSorry Sunday nights at Yates St Taphouse.
Even individually, they have had the opportunity to open up for legends Illenium, Featurecast and many more, and throw down sets at Tall Tree, Rifflandia, and Shambhala Music Festival. Now, these two artists come together to create something new and exciting. Welcoming to the Victoria scene for their debut performance is Mystery Headliner! We’re certainly looking forward to what this duo has up their sleeve for us.
Keeping this show warm are two openers that Tall Tree, or any other northwest festival attendant, should be familiar with. DJ Smoothie made his mark on the festival circuit, supplementing his already electric funky sets with a live saxophone. He also toured with our friends The Funk Hunters as their sax-man for the live band shows. Big E has been floating around our scene for longer than most of us have been here, and is no stranger to rocking a packed crowd. Whether it’s at Shambhala Music Festival or an underground warehouse party, Big E has been there, and he continuously proves it with his eclectic mix of various styles.
Along with an amazing lineup full of local talent, we also receive fun performances from our extras! Influx Dance Crew out of Victoria, BC, will be having their debut performance! This group consists of some of the scene’s hardest working DJs, dancers and promoters. With their mixture of flow arts, pop and lock, liquid, and hip-hop, we don’t doubt their premiere will set the stage on fire.
The main draw? They’re also giving away a weekend pass to where it all began—Tall Tree Music Festival! Come hit the club and have the opportunity to party with us in the mountains for free. All you gotta do is show up, pay cover, and cross those fingers that you’ll be the lucky winner! Tall Tree is close to to selling out, so now you have the chance to possibly win your way in! For those who don’t wanna leave it to chance, tickets are available here.
Beats, babes, dancing, and a chance to win? Doesn’t get much better! The show is taking place Saturday May 20th at Victoria’s own Sugar Nightclub. Check out the Facebook event here and RSVP for a good time. Best part? It’s only 5 bucks at the door! Who will we see at at Sugar on Saturday? Let us know in the comments!
