Intimate Post-Park Concerts
Happening Across Downtown Vancouver
Vancouver, BC–SKOOKUM festival organizers are pleased to announce SKOOKUM After Dark, an intimate concert series that will continue where the day left off. The three-day long celebration of music, food and art is not limited to Stanley Park – SKOOKUM After Dark will feature a variety of artists performing at a number of unique Vancouver venues including the Rickshaw, The Railway Stage & Beer Café and The Imperial.
“SKOOKUM After Dark adds another component to the SKOOKUM music experience,” says Paul Runnals, SKOOKUM Festival Director. “These smaller venues provide a different showcase environment for music – one that would appeal to festival attendees looking for a unique and intimate performance from an artist.”
Tickets to SKOOKUM After Dark will be available as add-on single purchase tickets and will go on sale Thursday, August 23 at 10am through www.skookumfestival.com
Launching September 7-9 in iconic Stanley Park, SKOOKUM will feature four stages of contemporary music performances with over 50 stage performances, live and multimedia art installations; gourmet culinary experiences from some of Vancouver’s most acclaimed restaurants; pop-up and roaming entertainment throughout the weekend and tasting areas showcasing some of the best BC wines, locally brewed craft beer as well as select offerings from local area craft distilleries. SKOOKUM Festival is produced by BRANDLIVE in collaboration with Virgin Mobile.
