Delhi 2 Dublin is the latest band to be added to the Wapiti Music Festival lineup.

The inventors of the ‘Celtic-Punjabi-electronica’ genre are joining the Wapiti lineup.

Hailing from Vancouver, Delhi 2 Dublin’s sound is a result of the band’s five unique members, amongst them a fiddle player and two Bhangra percussionists. Described as the ‘United Nations of rock ‘n roll’, they have become one of Canada’s most buzzed-about bands.

The group has played top festivals in Canada, the U.K., and the U.S., and in 2011 expanded their horizons to include performances in the Pacific Rim and Europe. Following the release of their latest album, Turn Up The Stereo, the band is continuing to enhance their already solid reputation.

Delhi 2 Dublin will join fellow Canadian rockers Plants and Animals, Current Swell, Loon Choir, and more on the CBC Stage at Wapiti this summer.

The Wapiti Music Festival runs two days, Friday, August 9 and Saturday, August 10. For ticket sales and full lineup details visit www.wapitimusicfestival.com.
