Year-after-year Starbelly Jam Music Festival has been committed to bringing great music to Crawford Bay

Year-after-year Starbelly Jam Music Festival has been committed to bringing the best of local, national and international music to Crawford Bay — and this year is no different.

From the unique folk-style of Kimya Dawson, who’s music appeared on the acclaimed Juno soundtrack to the inspiring sounds of Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, and Australian urban roots band Blue King Brown Starbelly is bringing the music of the world to the Kootenays from July 19 to 21.

With the full festival line-up announced earlier this month organizers are anticipating another great event.

“It’s always an exciting time when people see the line-up and share with us who they’re looking forward to seeing,” said artistic director Lea Belcourt. “I really think the line-ups get better every year.”

Early-bird tickets for Starbelly Jam are on sale now until May 14. The early bird rate for the adult weekend pass is $95; $55 for a youth weekend pass or an adult day pass; $65 for a seniors weekend pass; a youth day pass is $30; and a seniors day pass is $35. There is free admission for children 12 and under.

Tickets can be purchased online at starbellyjam.org/tickets2013.
