The 2014 Squamish Valley Music Festival is on its way, and will feature three days of fantastic music
for fans to enjoy live and in person. This year's event is scheduled to take place on August 8th, 9th and 10th, and fans from
all over are sure to flock to the Logger Sports Grounds in Vancouver, BC. This is the fifth year of the event, and the lineup
seems to be improving on an annual basis. This year's Squamish Music Festival will feature Band of Horses and Arcade Fire,
two top bands that have gotten some significant recognition over the past several years. These are just two of the fantastic
acts ready to hit the stage in Vancouver this summer, though, so make sure to get out to the event and see as many groups
as you can.

and Ryan Lewis, Childish Gambino, Young the Giant, Divine Fits, Dan Mangan, Pretty Lights, Yukon Blonde, Said the Whale, Diamond
Rings, Deap Vally, Capital Cities, A Tribe Called Red, The Matinee, Bear Mountain, The Funk Hunters, The Heavy, The Chantrelles,
Fine Times, Boatman and many more. 2014 should be the best lineup in the history of this event, as top artists like Bruno
Mars, Eminem and Arcade Fire will all hit the stage at the Logger Sports Grounds in 2014. This is a great show to see top
artists as well as up and comers that have not made a name for themselves yet. The great thing about a festival atmosphere
like this is that you can discover new bands that you might just end up loving.

comes to the festival atmosphere, there is a sense of togetherness that you probably won't find at most concerts. People coming
together is part of the festival vibe, and it draws in a lot of fun-loving people just looking to have a good time. See as
