      Merritt’s award-winning Bass Coast Festival is back for its 16th year in 2024, and today the first wave of artists has been revealed.

      The boutique music and arts fest, running from July 12 to 15, is promising a bevy of breakout performers and returning favourites.

      Performing a double header is Brooklyn-based rapper Leikeli47 along with Maine-based producer Of The Trees. A new host of electronic artists will make their Bass Coast debut, including Detroit soul-house phenom Ash Lauryn and UK garage/experimentalist brothers, Bakey—among many others. 

      “Spanning genres, continents, and eras, this electrifying roster of artists represents a bold leap into the future,” Bass Coast co-founder Andrea Graham says in a release. “This lineup showcases artists who are spearheading innovation and are masters of their craft.”
