LUNA is a weekend-long celebration of art and energy that takes place in downtown Revelstoke each fall. This year the festival kicks off on Friday, Sept. 27 with LUNA SOUND, a ticketed event featuring a sonic mash-up of eclectic styles.

The award-winning LUNA NOCTURNAL ART & WONDER follows on Saturday night, showcasing over 30 contemporary art installations in a free and inclusive atmosphere.

Sunday, September 29 features LUNA STUDIO; a focus on the artistic process that includes artist talks and workshops.

LUNA SOUND re imagines the century-old historic Regent Hotel with three live musical stages, an immersive and artistic chillout room, bar, and LUNA themed appies.

LUNA prides itself on experiencing the unexpected, and LUNA SOUND is no exception.

Seven bands are featured from a variety of genres including blues, soul, hip hop, electro, and indie rock. This ticketed, 19+ event features musicians that push the boundaries of their respective genres against the backdrop of LUNA’s magical artistry.

“We searched for the most original sounds and exciting new talent to bring to our LUNA audience for LUNA SOUND. A $25 ticket offers an unparalleled experience from seven phenomenal bands. It is without a doubt, the hottest ticket in town…” said Miriam Manley, Revelstoke Arts Council Executive Director.
