U4eeyah Music Festival 2013

Welcome to the second annual U4eeYah Music Festival!!!

We are very excited for this year. With so many new ideas, all of the new people helping and so much time to organize, this years chapter will be our finest work yet.

We are bringing you over 100 performers between the two stages. Our line-up is much more diverse and features many very respected entertainers. Nearly all genres of electronic music will be represented along with some hip-hop, beatboxers, professional dance troupes, and a few more surprises to be released along the way.

The main stage will again be a giant but greatly improved mushroom and for sound we are bumping it up to an incredible 72,000 watts rms in just subs,(not a typo bring ear plugs. Just under 110,000 watts in front of the stage!!!) The stage effects have been brought to a new level as well. The mushroom will be video mapped, projector with live feed from the dj booth, crazy rgb lasers, and a few more surprises in addition to last years epic light show.

We have teamed up with our friends from Bassik Entertainment from Kelowna and The Party Cat Project from Mabel Lake to bring you a second daytime stage featuring 16,000 watts from the Party Cat Project’s PK system.

Other festival ammenities include a massive chill tent by each stage to protect from sun or rain, atm, vendor village and artist merch booths, VIP areas, face and body painting, childrens workshops, massage and reflexology booths, yoga workshop, sanctuary and first aid tent, playgrounds, live graffiti tent, bonfires (pending fire ban) and more.

This is an all age event. Everyone is welcome however minors must be accompanied by an adult.  Unaccompanied minors detained by security at the first aid tent until claimed.

Liquor is permitted freely in your campsite however it is not permitted in the general area or at the stages. This is a public place, you must treat it as one. Security will be enforcing this. Any exessive intoxication or violence will result in your removal from the festival with no refund of any kind. Police will be contacted if necessary.

The gate will be open 24 hrs/day from start to finish. Persons and vehicles may be searched by security prior to allowing entrance to the grounds. There may be a police checkstop for people leaving. Please don’t drink and drive.

If there is enough interest we will open the gates on Thursday for people to come and get settled and run the Bassik stage Thursday night with some local talent.

Location

Once again U4eeyah Music Festival will be held at The Cedars Campground in Malakwa BC. Sept. 6 at 12pm – Sept. 9 at 12pm. This is by far finest Shuswap venue ever to host an electronic music festival.

The campground is right off of Trans-Canada Hwy 1 about 35 min west of Revelstoke or about 10 min east of Sicamous. We will have big signs on the side of the highway and you will see the balloons and lights at the gate.

The Cedars Campground has over 120 large camping sites to choose from. About half have rv hookups.

 

Excellent tasting well water is available at many locations all around the campground.

The campground is surrounded by 199 acres of beautiful nature park featuring several km of wilderness trails and about 1 km of the Eagle River and its many white sandy beaches.

It is everyone’s responsibility to see to it that the grounds are left in the same condition that they were prior. Please do not litter, there will be ample garbage cans and recycling bins provided. Please do not throw your cigarette butts on the ground. Vandalism will not be tolerated.

 

Volunteers

 

We are looking for friendly, creative people who would like to join our team to help make this festival happen.

We need people to work at the gate, help setup/tear down, first aid, hang signs and artwork, clean up, make artwork, etc. We have a lot of positions to fill. We are very open minded. Anyone who feels that they have anything to offer (in exchange for a ticket of course) should email Glen@prolifiksound.ca.

Banned Items

No dogs, weapons, illegal substances, glass, fireworks, negativity or bad vibes. Leave it behind please.

Camping

Camping is included in the price of the festival however we will be charging an additional $25 per rv and $5 per vehicle to encourage carpools and tents. There will be a $5/vehicle re-entry fee as well.

We have no choice but to restrict the flush toilets, showers, pool and spa to VIP only this year due to the overwhelming number of people. They can’t accommodate the volume that we are expecting. Porta-potties will be supplied in several locations..

Everyone will have access to the laundromat and sani-dump.

Artists

We are going to run for four nights this year and have two stages which means you get over four times the entertainers as last year. Artist info can be found at http://prolifiksound.ca/u4eeyah-artists/.
