Until Wapiti 2020 begins!


Wapiti Music Festival brings the best in Canadian Indie to Fernie, BC every August.



Wapiti Music Festival has a wonderful food fair area. It is filled with everything from kombucha to cabbage. There are plenty of healthy options that are good for you – and some that are just good. We make an effort to find food vendors of variety and quality.

There are non-food vendors too, for those of you that like to shop. Clothes, music, souvenirs, and more! Check out the Merch Tent if you’re looking for Wapiti or Band merchandise.

Morning Music Mixer

We take members from a bunch of bands, get them up early in the morning, feed them tons of coffee, take them off the stage to the field and get them to play close up and personal.

Starting at approximately 10:30a on Saturday and ending before the main show at 12:45, the Morning Mixer is a new tradition at Wapiti and was already the highlight of 2018.
