Kokanee Crankworx Entertainment Lineup Announced (03-Aug-08)

WHISTLER, BC, August 03, 2008 – The music lineup for Kokanee Crankworx is confirmed

The music lineup for Kokanee Crankworx is confirmed and includes some of the hottest up-and-coming indie artists in Canada. The festival is known for its high action mountain biking events, but there has always been a great music presence and this year will prove even better.  

“The Kokanee Crankworx experience is pretty awe inspiring. It takes a serious band to compete with the high-energy environment that is created in competition,” says Tyl Von Toorn, Kokanee Crankworx Director of Music Programming. “We are proud to say we have been able to bring more than 20 artists to fit that bill.”

There will be two main shows a day throughout the festival, as well as the Kokanee Aftershock parties taking place at local bars and restaurants throughout the village. With the TELUS Main Stage located at the base of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park, in the middle of Skiers Plaza, spectators will have the best of both worlds; live action and live music.

The artist line up for this year’s TELUS Concert Series includes: Whistler regular K’NAAN, the Woodhands, Shout Out Out Out Out, Redeye Empire, Blue King Brown, Vince Vaccaro, Flash Lightnin, Five Alarm Funk, Mr. Something Something, Mother Mother, Plants and Animals, Small Sins, Josh Martinez, Hot Little Rockets, Dana D & the South Rakkas Crew, DJ Science and the always entertaining freestyle skills of Supernatural.

“There’s nothing like Kokanee Crankworx,” says Jeremy Roche GM of Kokanee Crankworx. “It’s a celebration of everything that’s great about Whistler, from the gravity-defying trails to the passionate people who live and play here.”

Over the past years, Kokanee Crankworx has continued its evolution to becoming one of the world’s signature mountain lifestyle festivals. Mixing mountain bike action, village expos, demos and the stellar lineup of music talent will further cement Kokanee Crankworx as the summer festival to attend.
