One of my favourite music festivals is Tall Tree. The annual fest take you to the end of the highway on Vancouver Island, then up a logging road to the top of a mountain.
There is noting like being in the hills, surrounded by west coast rain forest, and looking out at a fishing village with the Pacific Ocean beyond. All while rock or electronic music is blasting from one of four stages!
Mix that in with all the hippies and weirdos, no cell service, west coast food trucks, and craft beer and cider, you have one hell of a party.
Tall Tree Music Festival 2017 will be going down June 23rd to 26th on Brown’s Mountain just outside Port Renfrew. TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW at talltreemusicfestival.com.
It is a righteous time…and is probably more adventure than music festival!
