    Hey has anyone seen this festival in Edmonton in Canada?

    It has a pretty good lineup of Canadian Artists.

    I heard about it. But it was kinda expensive. 88$ CAN! plus, I thought it was a bit nervy that the promoters were billing it as a "Burning Man in the winter" as if!! The only dj/musical act that I was interested in was major lazer. I'm not going to pay 88$ for them however. I'm sure it will be super fun. Just have way too much stuff on my plate to even consider it.

    I've always wanted to see the northern lightz. I could kill two birds with one stone if I went to this

    They had a special, buy 4 tickets at the price of 3. It was a steal at $60.

    I live in Edmonton and frankly I find it a little stupid, they're trying to take the name of Burning man, which appeals to citizens here and apply it to something completely unrelated. Also, there's no northern lights in edmonton lol. you'd have to drive at least another 8 hours north for that ;]

    The appropriation of anything related to Burning man is only surface-deep. However, that lineup is pretty stacked for Edmonton.


    As for the northern lights, I've seen them here in Edmonton tons of times. You just gotta know when to look.

    I'm not a huge fan of the lineup to be honest, was offered free tickets and said no.
    I've seen them maybe four times in 19 years here lol.
    Not saying it doesnt happen..you just can't come here expecting to see them, it's not a nightly occurance.
