Harrison – 40 is a significant number, at least when it refers to someone’s age. Turning 40 is considered by many as the start of “middle age”, a term that evokes some contradictions. On the one hand, there is the potential turmoil (and fun) of the midlife passage. On the other, there is the comfort of settling down and getting a little more secure in one’s skin (hopefully).
The Harrison Festival is 40 years old this year. They don’t plan to settle down, in fact, they’re just ramping up.
The 2018 Festival is July 7 through to the 15th.
Artistic Director Andy Hillhouse outlines this years 40th Anniversary celebrations in the video below. There’s plenty of the usual great music and other features on the beach and in the Concert hall. This year, featuring Shari Ulrich, Chilliwack and Buffy St. Marie. Buffy’s show will be sold separately from the regular packages that you can purchase.
