V Fest Visits Vancouver and Toronto

Published: 2007-01-29
The British Virgin Festival hit Canada's biggest city in 2006 and this year it is making its way to the west coast.

The first Vancouver version of V Fest will take place on May 20-21 at the Thunderbird Stadium at the University of British Columbia. Along with dates and location a few of the bands playing in Vancouver this spring were announced. May 20 will feature My Chemical Romance, Billy Talent and Muse, while May 21 will host Hot Hot Heat, AFI and the Killers.

Ticket presales begin today (January 29) with regular tickets hitting ticketmaster on February 3, with one day tickets going for $43.18.

Just because the west coast is getting V Fest this year doesn't mean it won't be hitting Toronto too. The Toronto V Fest will be taking place from September 8-9 at Toronto Island Park. Though this year's acts haven't been announced yet, last year's show featured The Flaming Lips, Gnarls Barkley, The Raconteurs and Broken Social Scene filling in for Massive Attack that had to drop out at the last minute.
