The inaugural Between the Peaks Mountain Music Fest on September 15th and 16th hosted right at the base of RED Mountain Resort in Rossland, BC was hailed as a major success not just for the town of Rossland but for the region as a whole, celebrating live music in the outdoors. This 2-day music festival with an attendance of close to 2,000 total festival goers, hosted 16 bands on 2 stages, and served up a variety of amazing food vendors, beers, ciders, and cocktails, all with the beautiful backdrop of RED Mountain Resort’s Red and Granite peaks. Major award-winning acts such as The Strumbellas, Yukon Blonde, and The Sadies headlined the weekend, along with a variety of countless other incredible performances such as Jesse Roper, Louise Burns, The Bankes Brothers, Mother Sun, and more.
