Edmonton Folk Music Fest Sells Out Weekend Passes



EDMONTON, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Weekend passes to this year's Edmonton Folk Music Festival were snapped up like hotcakes, selling out within two hours of going onsale.

The four-day festival is set to take place from August 4th-7th with a list of headliners that includes: k.d. lang, Angelique Kidjo, the Gipsy Kings, K.T. Tunstall John Mayall and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros

Day passes to Sunday's show, with k.d. lang also sold out in short order.

"We are extremely grateful for the tremendous support of our patrons," Producer Terry Wickham said.

"We apologize to patrons who were unable to get through either on our phone lines or our website."

"The demand was so great that it crashed our phone lines for 90 minutes. There was also overwhelming demand for our online tickets. We directed patrons to go through Ticketmaster when they opened at 10 a.m. This resulted in Ticketmaster’s allotment also selling out quickly." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
