Southwest residents can enjoy the Long Days Night Music Festival in Swift Curret, held at the Windscape field south of the City.

Terra Lighfoot will kick off the festival with bluesy-rock this evening followed by The Commoners with The Radiant tomorrow, coming with psychedelic grooves, and soul music.

Saturday night will feature the Dirty Catfish Brass Band with Lyssa and The Try-Tones brining pop, brass, and New Orleans Style. The final show will finish off with a free to attend afterparty featuring the local band, Rib Rash.

Scott Weinbender, operations manager for Windscape Kite Festival and Long Days Night Music Festival, encourages anyone interested to take advantage of this once-a-year opportunity to get together for fun.

"It's live music, it's going to be very high energy, and it's a good environment," he said. "We've got Black Bridge Brewery sponsoring some beer for us, along with Great Western, and Lucky Bastard."

Doors open at 7 p.m. this evening with music at 8:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday with music beginning at 8:30 p.m.

He noted that admission is $30 tonight, $35 on Friday and Saturday, $80 for a three-day pass that will go up in price once the festival starts tonight. 

"We don't get a lot of opportunity in this area to listen to new, live music," added Weinbender. "These are some great bands we've got coming to give people a new, unique experience."

Interested parties can purchase tickets on-site, at Pharmasave in Swift Current, or register online.
