Tickets are already selling for the first annual Wapiti Music Festival after the board announced the line up on Friday night.

Elliot Brood, Said the Whale, Yukon Blond, Jesse D and Jacquie B, Shred Kelly and Big Bubba Tres will be taking the stage in August.

“There are more surprises to come,” said Wapiti board member Chantel Souliere.

Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, who performed at Friday’s release party, will also be playing on the Friday night of Wapiti.

“There was a raging dance floor Friday night,” Souliere said. “People are really excited Michael Bernard Fitzgerald will be playing at the festival.”

A six-piece band accompanied Fitzgerald. Their performance included covers of Bruce Springsteen’s Dancing in the Dark and viral video favourite, Bedroom Intruder.

Souliere said Friday’s release party was a sold out event.

“Everyone is really supportive and really excited about the festival and the line up,” she said.

“It inspired people to get involved as volunteers and people are already buying tickets.”

Tickets for the festival on August 19 and 20 are available online through the Wapiti website, www.ferniemusic.com. A weekend pass is $40.
