Music Fest Wants To Return To Campground
The organizers of a three-day music festival held last summer at Koocanusa, British Columbia, are seeking permission to hold the festival again this Canada Day weekend, the Cranbrook Daily Townsman reported.
Darryl Stanat and Shawn Lafleur, directors of FozzyFest, presented their plans to the Regional District of East Kootenay board of directors on Friday, March 7.
The pair gave a history of the festival, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year, and talked about how they found the Big Springs campground on Koocanusa last year as a new site for the festival.
Because it expects to have 1,000 attendees, FozzyFest requires a special event license from the regional district to proceed, even though it will be held at the campground owned and operated by the Tobacco Plains Band.
The three-day outdoor camping festival will have three stages set up throughout the campground, two in the heart of the campsite and one on the beach. Music plays from noon until 6 a.m. each day, but the beach stage closes down at 11 p.m.
