Evolve opens Thursday Night! (if you can make it)

We are so excited to Evolve this summer.  It’s our sweet 16th year of bringing the best artists and performers to Nova Scotia for the summer’s best festival and we could not be more thrilled about the fun and talented line-up that is being prepared for you.   Our musical line-up will be announced over the month of April, but we want to let you in on a big change coming this year. 

_Evolve-2014-by-CHR!S-SM!TH-40For the first time, Evolve 2015 will be a 4-day festival!   There’s always been an unofficial Thursday night party at Evolve –  last year over 1000 people arrived on Thursday night, but local officials were never too happy about it, citing public safety and traffic concerns.  Fair enough.  

So this year we’ve worked with the RCMP, the Fire Chief and Antigonish County Council and we’ve expanded the weekend to include some serious Thursday night fun!  A few quick notes about Thursday…

  • The Evolve grounds will be partially open Thursday night.  We will be parking cars and opening a stage in the parking lot.  Our goal is to preserve the Thursday night vibe of “The People’s Parking Lot.”
  • Entertainment will include sets by Skratch Bastid and Tommy Knuckles!  (And probably others – more info soon)
  • Thursday night is not included in the Evolve Weekend Pass.  Since not everyone can make it, we decided it should be a separate ticket.   Thursday night will be $25 AT THE GATE.  
  • And one more thing – the good people on Antigonish County Council have granted our request to be exempt from the county noise by-law!  This means that – for those who can make it – we’ll be dancing all night! 

So there you have it.  If you can make it, join us Thursday night for the first night of the best weekend of the summer.  

Now if only there was some news about tickets….  

We love you.
