Vancouver park board adds SKOOKUM festival to annual calendar of major special events – Straight.com

June 11th, 2019

The SKOOKUM Music Festival is one step closer to making a comeback in 2020.

Last night, the Vancouver park board voted to add it to the annual calendar of major special events.

When it was held in September 2018 at Brockton Fields in Stanley Park, it attracted more than 50,000 attendees over three days.

The headliners were Florence + The Machine and the Killers.

The park board won’t allow BRANDLIVE to put on the event without the approval of the Squamish Nation, Tsleil-Waututh Nation, and Musqueam Indian Band. (The Musqueam have chosen not to call themselves a “nation” until they’re freed from the shackles of the Indian Act.)
