Big Time Out 2011 – Win Weekend Passes!
Some things go hand-in-hand with summertime in the Comox Valley: swimming at Barber’s Hole, slurping ice cream cones on the dock at Comox Harbour and grilling up a storm on the backyard BBQ. You can add “rocking out at the Big Time Out” to that list. For the fifth year, Cumberland Village Works is cooking up a tour de force line-up for their annual music festival.
Quickly becoming known for its eclectic mix of body-moving, soulful and diverse acts, the BTO can certainly be described as legendary. Far more than just music, BTO promises a smörgåsbord of tasty local eats, sideshow performers, roaming dance troupes and a lot of heart-filling fun for everyone.
With each passing year, BTO keeps getting bigger with acts that are hard to beat. Among this year’s scheduled performers you’ll find Juno Award-winning Bedouin Soundclash, Beats Antique, The Boom Booms, Dub FX, Australia’s Kim Churchill, Current Swell out of Victoria, Kuba Oms & the Velvet Revolution, Brasstronaut and a few more surprises. Big Time Out 2011 will not disappoint.

Where am I gonna park my car? Parking in Cumberland is extremely limited. Carpooling with friends is your best bet or grab a ride with Comox Valley Transit. If you decide to drive, don’t block residents’ driveways and be sure to park in designated areas only.
