This weekend, Kelowna is boasting the Keloha Music Festival, downtown at Kelowna’s Waterfront Park. If you’ve missed it the last couple days, here’s what happened:
Friday, July 6, 2012:
We are the City opened Friday evening, harboring a warm local feel to the event. The Island stage also hosted the neo-nostalgic vibe of The Limousines from LA, Graffiti6’s chunky guitar beats and pleading harmonies while the night finished with the vigorous, dancing cadence of Tokyo Police Club. The crowd was left with nothing to saunter about as they made their way to various after parties at The Habitat, Sapphire, and Doc Willoughby’s.
Saturday, July 7, 2012:
Saturday started in the early afternoon with a couple DJs at the Sandbar stage, and Kytami at the Island stage. As the afternoon heated up, more birds (by birds, I mean people) flocked in to see The Boom Booms, IllScarlett, USS, and The Dirty Radio. Daniel Wesley began the evening with some arm raising “love the world” kind of sounds, singing about ganja and “ooh-oh-ing” our hearts large. We were enchanted by the facial hair of The Dudes, and forced into dance-like movements while listening to The Joy Formidable ‘rock out’. The evening at Keloha closed with a compact crowd listening to The Cold War Kids, and again moved into the streets of downtown Kelowna to infest the venues with after party fever.
