The theme this year for the 6th annual Bass Coast music festival is “Mutiny”. Bass Coast takes place every August 1-4th at the home of the previous Merritt Mountain Music Festival in the Nicola Valley, Merritt, BC. This year will be my first time attending the festival, but over the past several months I have been gradually feeling myself becoming accepted and welcomed by the open-arms community that is the “Bass Coast Project”. I’m excited to make the journey out to Merritt soon and discover all the creative arts that this culture boldly represents.
The theme “Mutiny” runs deep within the Bass Coast community and I wanted to find out what this theme represents to people and what should I expect going into it. How does one bring their “mutiny manifesto” to Bass Coast and how exactly are we currently challenging the status quo in our everyday lives? It’s questions like these that I wanted to ask before the festival takes place, so I teamed up with Nathan Skillen at RADTV and we ventured out to the Bass Coast: Mutiny Pre-Party at Open Studios in Vancouver.
We talk to the co-founders of Bass Coast, Liz Thomson and Andrea Graham and also chop it up with several of the people who make up the eclectic mix that is the Bass Coast community outside of Open Studios. That along with killer visuals from the show itself, we present to you.. Mutiny at Bass Coast? – Spliff Breaks x RADTV.
