the Roots

Elvis Costello and the Imposters, the Roots and Broken Social Scene have been tapped for this year's inaugural Whistler Music Festival, set for July 19-20 at Tube Park at Base II on the side of Blackcomb Mountain in Whistler, British Columbia.

Other artists performing at the festival include Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Medeski Martin & Wood, Bedouin Soundclash and Serena Ryder. Additional acts will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets for the event go on sale Thursday via WhistlerMusicFestival.com. Single-day tickets are priced at about $67.50, and two-day passes cost $120.

"We'll be in an unbelievable setting in the middle of the mountains," Festival Network CEO Tom Shepard said.

The Whistler Music Festival is produced by Festival Network in collaboration with Tourism Whistler, Whistler-Blackcomb and Resort Municipality of Whistler. Festival Network also overseas such jazz/folk-themed festivals as JVC Jazz Festival Miami, Los Angeles' Playboy Jazz Festival and JVC Jazz Festival New York.

The event brings another major concert to the Whistler area; the inaugural Pemberton Festival will be held just north of the town the weekend after Whistler and will feature performances by Coldplay, Jay-Z and Nine Inch Nails, among others.
