Be sure to get your tickets! Venue is smaller this year to make it more personal and keep energy going throughout the whole day. Which means tickets could sell out a lot faster! I’m currently working on a few retail outlets to make tickets more available, but for now tickets are available at Louis or online. Click here
Today is the day! Second announcement! And tickets are now on sale!
So much is happening all at once behind the scenes. Just trying to make sure this is executed perfectly even though time is so very thin. Next handful of bands will be released much faster. So keep an eye out! In other news…
Tickets are also now available! Finally!
MazzFest is very proud is present!
2nd announcement tomorrow! Getting pumped to release this next handful of artists. I’m learning a lot this year but one thing I’m still trying to pick up on is marketing. I’m still very much a street pusher, I poster, hand out flyers ect. But online marketing is expensive and takes quite a bit of knowledge to make it beneficial, and that I currently don’t have. Before this next announcement I’m just going to ask a small favour.. Simply share online or convince a friend to come out this year. This seriously helps more then you could ever know. But anyways, hope your all ready for a treat within the next 24 hours!
I’v been getting a lot of questions about the venue situation like getting asked if and why the festival is at Louis. The answer is YES! This is very real! And I'm stoked on it!
I feel that MazzFest is still at a personal level so when it comes to answering some of these questions I’m able to explain things a bit easier without it becoming HUGE dramatic news. The reason for switching venues is simple. The past 3 years O’brians Event Centre has been renovating and improving their establishment. Some of you may remember a few years ago we had a 3rd stage in what was called the vault. That later became a pub, so unfortunately we lost that stage. This year they put in bottle service lifts where our 2nd stage normally would go, so this year MazzFest simply no longer fits in venue. To be clear there is absolutely no hard feelings. I work very closely with O’brians Events Centre staff and support them 100%! Everything that venue has become, and is slowly becoming, is nothing short of amazing.
When talking to some staff at Louis (who I also work closely with) about the no venue situation I was in, the greatest dude of all time simply said “why not have it here?”. At first to me it was questionable, and I didn’t know how it would work due to the size of the venue. After exchanging ideas and re-discovering it’s a lot bigger than most people think. I very quickly started loving the idea of it. The best part is WE HAVE OUR 3 STAGES BACK! It's about time MazzFest changed it up and presented something new. This year is going to be insane! MazzFest has been completely re-imagined, and this year is just a stepping-stone. I’ve told many artists my long term plans and everybody has been giving nothing but positive feedback. So get pumped for the family to grow bigger and better!
If your curious on how we’re going to make 3 stages work at Louis …you’re just going to have to come and find out.
Long weekend has finally started and I’m getting more and more pumped to finally get some solid work done on this fest. Next announcement is going to have another 6 bands and will take place on Monday! After that the last few announcements will come a lot quicker. Tickets should also be posted online Monday!
Lot’s is happing behind the scenes, endless list of things to do.
So many emails to send! If you’re a person/artist waiting to hear something or anything from me either being advances, approvals, denies and answers to any questions. I just want to apologize in advanced and say that I’ll be getting back to you ASAP. I have about 3 jobs total, a band, and then this festival on top it all. I’m just one person biting more than I can chew right now and choking on whatever’s left, but that’s okay! If this is what it takes, so be it. I couldn’t be more stoked to get this all 100% within the next week and keep looking ahead to continue building this family. Some of you know the big future plans; others will just have to wait and see… until then listen to Plaguebringer and punch something.
