Southern Alberta’s largest electronic music festival is dropping beats into its ninth year
The 9th Annual Lethbridge Electronic Music Festival (LEMF), hosted by the electronic music production company and their partners Unified Vibe and London Road Marketing, will take place Saturday at Galt Gardens Park.
The free event starts at 11 a.m. and ends at 11:30 p.m.
From its beginnings on one small stage in 2012, the festival has grown into a summer event drew close to 5,000 people in 2019.
The one-day event will feature two stages and 24 acts spanning a multitude of electronic music genres.
“Our goal at LEMF is to provide a free, not-for-profit event that gives families and those who may not usually attend electronic events, an opportunity to check the scene out,” said David Fritz, current President of the LEMF organizing committee in a release. “We are very proud to be family friendly and have an age range of children up through to seniors coming together to share a love of music.”
The festival features an all Canadian lineup this year with major headliner Skratch Bastid (Toronto), The Gaff (Saskatoon), Woofax (Calgary) and Rumpus (Regina).
The lineup also includes 12 local and eight out of town acts, featuring artists who are veterans of the Western Canadian festival scene.
LEMF gives DJs an opportunity to play for family, friends and the community, rather than just in a nightclub or at 18-plus festivals.
LEMF will also feature 18 artisan vendors, four food trucks, beer gardens, a Kids Zone with air jump, free face painting, dancers and live graffiti art.
