Batroun's Wickerpark festival keeps summer alive


Think September means the summer is over? Think again. This Sunday the laidback northern town of Batroun is hosting the fourth edition of Wickerpark, a music festival set by the sea with good vibes, local bands and an eco-conscious spirit.

Organized by Soul Arch, a group of young social entrepreneurs, the event will host big names such as indie bands Mashrou’ Leila and Scrambled Eggs, and singer-songwriter Charlie Rayne, alongside lesser-known talents including the melodic Youmna Saba, electro-soul gurus Z The People & Al Jihaz, Montreal-based How Sad and experimental band the Flum Project.

Set in a field adjoining the home of two of the organizers - Junior and Michelle Daou - the 3,000 square meter green space is transformed into a mini festival site featuring art on environmental issues and stalls run by local NGOs and activists to raise awareness for ongoing projects.

Best of all, the site is right by the sea, so festival-goers can watch the sun go down over the Mediterranean as they sip a beer and enjoy the music.

For those wanting to make it a super authentic festival experience and camp, the nearby Colonel Brewery is available for pitching tents. Tickets are $20 and are available on the door or online. For more information call 76-477-047.
