Edmonton is getting a brand new reside music venue this summer time
As recommended by health officials, if you choose to attend events outside of your home, please adhere to COVID-19 health and safety precautions, including reasonable physical distancing, wearing masks, and frequent hand washing. If you are sick, please stay home.
Live music is making a comeback in Edmonton this summer with a fun new twist.
Trixstar starts Canada first committed, socially distant concert venue in YEG this year. The company will bring a series of concerts to town in August, with a setup similar to Alberta’s current restaurant health guidelines.
“Think of it as a huge restaurant terrace with some of your favorite bands playing live on stage,” says the Together Again Outdoor Concert Series website.
The venue offers a full food and beverage service, with participants ordering using their smartphones and having refreshments delivered directly to their seats.
The event management company says security measures include limited capacity to ensure physical distancing, reservable tables for up to six people, contact tracing, and mandatory masking.
The Together Again Outdoor series of concerts is scheduled to take place in August, featuring a number of notable artists including Blue Rodeo, Dean Brody, Our Lady Peace, Alan Doyle, Bif Naked, Jess Moskaluke and more. According to Trixstar, “more artists, more dates and more events” will be announced in the coming weeks.
“Music is an important part of bringing people together, and connections are fundamental to our mental health,” says the President of Trixstar Mike Anderson.
“We’re making it safer and more intimate, while creating more space and maintaining the same excitement that you would expect when your favorite bands perform live on stage. It’s time to step off our screens and get back to the experience. “
The concert series is set to take place at the historic Racetrack Infield in the Edmonton Exhibition Lands, and the cast in August looks like this.
August 6: Five Alarm Funk, The Jerry Cans, DJ Shub, Shawnee Kish, Halcyon Gray
Aug 7: Serena Ryder, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Nuela Charles, Carter & The Capitals, Shaela Miller
August 8: The Trews, 54-40, Bif Naked, Kane Incognito, Stephanie Harpe Experience
