Wickerpark Music Festival 2018
from Saturday, September 8, 2018 16:00 to Sunday, September 9, 2018 04:00
Pata, Batroun, Lebanon
Wickerpark is a grassroots alternative festival. Over the past 7 years it has managed to become a milestone in the independent festival experience in Lebanon. With modest beginnings and a steadfast commitment to alternative culture, each year we work towards creating a festival as remarkable as we can for our audience. The bands, artists, collaborations and program as a whole adhere to our philosophy. Thus far we have accommodated more than 18,000 attendees, 80 bands, and 150 artists and performers, not to mention a long list of NGOs, activists, promoters, and independent ventures, all committed to our vision.
The location remains the most unique feature of the festival as it takes place in a field next to the founders’ beach house in the coastal city of Batroun (55 km north of Beirut), which contributes to the family atmosphere of the festival.
Wickerpark now plays a very unique role in the dynamics of alternative culture in Lebanon. We feel a degree of responsibility in introducing new sounds (local, regional and international) within high production standards to our audience. Wickerpark is considered to be the most laidback, affordable and rewarding live-music experience in the country.
Our team is lead by Soul Arch, a collective of young entrepreneurs with experience in communication, design, multimedia engineering and event production. It is backed by a long list of volunteers/friends and the participation of the artistic, environmental and social communities.
