Arcade Fire to headline 2014 Squamish Music Festival

Squamish will be rocking to the sound of top touring acts Arcade Fire, Eminem and Bruno Mars this summer.

The fifth edition of the Squamish Valley Music Festival is going big in a bid to attract close to 35,000 music fans daily, from Aug. 8-10, with its site capacity expanded from 17,000 last year.

Other notable performers will include alternative pop duo Broken Bells, British pop-rockers Arctic Monkeys, influential rap group The Roots, pop-rocker Lykke Li and Canadian rockers Sam Roberts Band.

“We’re taking it to the next level and delivering an event that’s bigger and better than ever,” Live Nation Canada president Paul Haagenson said during a press conference Wednesday at the Commodore Ballroom, with representatives from the District — including Mayor Rob Kirkham — in attendance.
