Wailin’ Wednesday: Outdoor Party with Dan Mangan

Wailin’ Wednesday: Outdoor Party with Dan Mangan

Have you ever been to a shindig at Fort Gibraltar in the fall? It’s the place to go in February during Festival du Voyageur, but on October 2 it will be the hot ticket in town for the BreakOut West Kick-Off Party.

Bring some friends, grab a seat around the bon fire and watch the outdoor show featuring Dan Mangan, Vancouver punk duo PinkBrown, Winnipeg indie-rockers Yes We Mystic and Saskatoon’s DJ Factor. We were excited for the opportunity to curate this show and can’t wait to put on our best wool sweaters and take in the music with you! Tickets are just $20 at your friendly neighbourhood Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store as well as Music Trader and Ticketmaster

BreakOut West will be taking over Winnipeg next week with a music festival, industry conference and Western Canadian Music Awards Gala.

There are so many great shows happening Octover 3 to 4, including showcases at our own venue, The Folk Exchange (211 Bannatyne Ave). On Friday, multi-Juno Award winner Steve Dawson, Kim Beggs, Jocelynne Baribeau and Joel Fafard will take the stage. Some of our favourite folks – Zachary Lucky, Boreal Sons, Chloe Albert and Cassidy Mann – will play on Saturday. The whole festival weekend is incredibly affordable – just pick up your festival wristband, which gets you into all shows, for just $20 at the Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store or Music Trader.

Happy festivaling!
