Winnipeg Indie Music Lovers Rejoice: The Real Love Music Festival is Almost Here!

Real Love ButtonWinnipeg has always been a hotbed of musical innovation.  From the 60’s community club scene that saw The Guess Who and Neil Young dominating the Rock and Roll charts.  To smaller bands like The Jury who never quite got the big break they deserved.  Some music scholars have theorized that it’s all part of the isolation Winnipeg enjoys geographically and meteorologically.  Let’s face it although Winnipeg is in the center of the continent we’re in the middle of nowhere and our winters can be brutally extreme.

What this does to people is debatable but one thing is for sure it breeds creativity.  The Real Love Music festival, happening June 6-8th, is proof of that in spades.  Taking place at Gimli Motorsports Park in Gimli, Manitoba The Real Love Festival hopes to give people of all ages and backgrounds an affordable and memorable music experience.

In speaking with one of the festival organizers Gil Carroll I learned that a full weekend pass is only $20.00 and that a that day passes for Friday or Saturday are only $15.00 with Sunday’s abbreviated day costing only $5.00.  I can clearly see that this is a project of love and not money.  It’s impossible to go the movies for less than $20.00 so a full weekend of funky indie tunes for that price is an unbelievable bargain.  Camping is also being accommodated on sight but requires an e-mail request via to reserve a camping site.  General inquiries can be sent to Real Love Winnipeg Contact Us.
