This will be the last Denim on the Diamond music festival.
For the past 5 years, Denim has been hosted at the historical Kings Stadium baseball diamond in downtown Kelowna.
The popular music festival has sold out the past 3 years with over 4,000 attendees each day featuring a multitude of music genres; Friday night has more of an alternative dance/pop theme headlined by Bryce Vine & Reve while Saturday’s theme shifts back to country showcasing Nashville rising stars Nate Smith, MacKenzie Porter & The Cadillac Three.
Local artists performing are 538st; and Dawson Gray + Mitch Zorn.
The event has expanded over the years to include Lions Park (beside King Stadium) to allow for more space to include local retailers, food trucks and games.
When we started this event 6 years ago, we never expected in our wildest dreams we’d be hosting tens of thousands of people. Unfortunately Kings Stadium just isn’t designed for this purpose – it’s been the home to Kelowna Men’s Major Fastball Association for decades and they have graciously collaborated with us over the years, but due to the overwhelming community support, we’re bursting at the seams. If you haven’t experienced a night of music with us on the diamond, this is the last chance. You’ve knocked us out of the park, literally. – Kurt Jory, Thick as Thieves Entertainment.
Our original intention was to create a space for locals to come together at the end of summer, and we worked really hard to transform the ball diamond into a unique music festival venue. As we’ve showcased more artists and attracted more music tourists to Kelowna, the growth year over year means we have to consider the venue to provide the best experience possible.
We’re working behind the scenes to find a new home that can accommodate the type of demand for this music festival. For now we’re focused on delivering guests the best Denim yet, and contemplating the growth of AltiTunes, Beer Fest, and Island Time too. It will be bittersweet when we hang up the cleats and clean out the lockers at Kings for the last time. – Mitch Carefoot, Thick as Thieves Entertainment
The event will sell out in the next week or two.
