Our old friends Kyra and Phil fell in love with Hootstock when they first showed up the second year back in 2013. They love it so much that no matter where they are, Kyra and Phil have ALWAYS COME to the festival every year since then.

Not only are they attendees, they are also super volunteers who have spent countless hours working their butts off over the years. We LOVE KYRA and PHIL!

So we were especially happy when they decided that Hootstock 2016 will be when and where they get married! The ceremony will be performed by The one and only Hobo on Saturday, July 23, 2016 during The Fifth Annual Hootstock Festval.

We hope you come out and join us in sending the happy couple off in style, it's going to be a huge celebration and you're all invited. Entry is included in the cost of your Festival Ticket.

Hootstock 2016

Hey folks, We are super excited about this years festival, for a bunch of reasons, one its our fifth year! We have a stellar line up, including some friends that have performed for us in the past and some new friends that will be here for the first time.

We have great plans for the food this year although it will be hard to top last years menu, but we are going to try. Our wood fired pizza oven will roaring all weekend (one of our funding sources), you will want to try it!

We also have some delightful surprises planned for the weekend, gotta be there to find out. We are encouraging volunteers to get a hold of us sooner than later, we had a wonderful group last year and things went great, looking forward to working with everyone this year to put on a superb, first class music festival.

We had great bunch of folks apply to perform this year, and unfortunately we couldn't have everyone, they were all exceptional in their own way and we will hope to get some of them next year. We are going to post the entire line up and schedule in the near future on this web site.

We just would like to remind everyone this festival is sponsored solely by ticket sales as we don't solicit funds nor do we take corporate or government monies. So tell all your friends to come out and support our truly grassroots you won't be disappointed

Thanks and hope to see you July 22, 23, 24

About Hootstock

The first Hootstock Festival took place in July 2012 at the site of the old Bradley Creek Schoolhouse, which is affectionately known as the Stumpranchers Hall (40 km. East of 100 Mile House B.C. on Eagle Creek Rd).

The Hootstock Festival is an offspring of the Hootenanny Cafe, a local entertainment phenomenon, (see Hootenanny Cafe on Facebook). It was just a one day outdoor festival totally jammed with great entertainment. The festival has no corporate sponsors, all the funds are raised through ticket sales, with the majority of profits going to pay the performers.

Volunteers play an important role in this festival as one can imagine. In 2012, we had more than thirty different acts ranging from old tyme music to varied rock musicians, some great poetry, bellydancers! as well as some modern dance and electronica. You can check out some video on youtube at huncityproductions.



Pretty rustic setting. Great out houses, nice fire pits and camping spots. Folks need to bring their own drinking water please. Wash water will be available on site. We are not sure at this time, but we are guessing we should have 100+ tenting spots and a few R.V. spots. Last year we had some great food vendors that kept everyone happy with some great snacks ! This year will be the same, and we are encouraging other vendors of weird and wonderful goods to Contact Us.


As with most small, cool festivals we would greatly appreciate any help we could get from folks that are like minded in wanting to promote local culture and in turn be involved in something pretty special!! Anyone wanting to help in any way and share their skills with us should Contact Us.


You may have noticed the lack of corporate sponsorship logo's on this web site. We believe that this festival should stand on it own as far as finances go. In order to do this we welcome the co-operation of individuals. We choose not to go around with our hands out looking for money from the government or any other corporations. People are what will make this festival survive, their CO-OPeration and not CORPoration is whats important, and really its all about the music and the entertainment, not money!! CHEERS!!


We will again have music, dancers, poets, story tellers, performance artists, kids performers, someone doing something with fire would be great!! For the performers we can provide much gratitude, lots of hospitality, great food, a great stage and sound show, a really great time and some pay. Aspiring performers are also warmly encouraged.
