Tickets to the 2022 edition of the beloved Canadian boutique music festival Bass Coast are on sale now.

Emerging from a two-year hiatus, the electronic music and arts festival is scheduled to return for its 12th edition from July 8th to 11th in Merritt, B.C., on the shared traditional territories on the Nłeʔkepmx and Syilx nations.

After being postponed twice due to the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic, organizers were preparing for a return in 2022. However, just days before tickets were scheduled to go on sale, the host city of Merritt was ravaged by floods. Out of respect for everyone affected, Bass Coast organizers chose to focus their efforts on helping those in need.

In response to the devastating floods, the Bass Coast community came together to raise $21,100 for the Merritt Rotary Disaster Relief Fund and six local Indigenous bands.

The boutique festival has called the picturesque community of Merritt their home since 2013. And, in less than 24 hours, the fundraising goal of $15,000 was surpassed.  

“The Bass Coast community came together to raise funds to support the host town of the festival,” Bass Coast co-founder Liz Thomson said in a press release. "The generosity of the community was astonishing.”
