Over the last 9 years, the Boonstock Music & Arts Festival has developed into an annual outdoor event with a demographic catering to young adults predominantly between the ages of 19 to 35. With the change in music line-up, we anticipate the audience shift to include a wider range from 19 to 45. Boonstock has developed into a recognizable brand attractive to the Millennial demographic – an age group that represents the culture of the 20 and 30 year olds in todays market. Born between 1980 and 1995, there are over 80,000 million millennials moving into the work force. Their unique attributes include their advanced technology skill sets, substantial multi-tasking abilities and higher levels of education across the demographic. Creating a music festival for this group must focus its energy on an evolving line-up appealing to all the senses. New for 2014 New location in Penticton, BC Music format slightly changed to a more indie-rock, eclectic, and EDM sound Boonstock now on the August long weekend.

Located at the south end of the City of Penticton, the Boonstock Music and Arts Festival is a 114 acre parcel of land owned by locattee families of the Penticton Indian Band. In close proximity to services, it is a rural environment that will be developed to accommodate the festival. Permanent perimeter fencing with predetermined access will surround the site maintaining controlled access.

Security Contractors Concert Bowl Main Stage Second Stage EDM Stage Vendor Village Bowl Licensed Gardens Beach Licensed Gardens Campground Beach Security Categories Boonstock Music & Arts Festival will engage a professional security organization to execute the Safety and Security Plan including Crowd Management and First Aid Services for the 2014 event. In January 2014, Boonstock Music & Arts Festival entered into a Service Agreement arrangement with International Crowd Management Inc. (ICM). We are extremely confident that ICM understands the security and safety challenges involved in successfully executing this type of major public event and know they have a successful track record of delivering reliable and effective Security and First Aid Services on numerous similar sporting and concert events—including the 2010 Olympics, Keloha, Centre of Gravity and the City of Vancouver’s 125 th Birthday Celebration of Stanley Park…to list a few. Boonstock Music & Arts Festival is contracting Dave Fraser and his security team to implement the PIB Community Safety Plan. He has a long standing history with the PIB and has an extensive working relationship with community members and the PIB. Since he is very familiar with the PIB and its community members, Dave and his team will know who to provide access to band lands. ICM will manage the festival site, Dave Fraser will manage the PIB community plan and the Traffic Management Plan will oversee all the Ministry of Highway’s roads and vehicle traffic with a professional flagging team.
Security Posts ICM will organize sufficient coverage for each of the security posts identified in the plan. Some posts will be manned 24 hours per day with others only during hours of operation.
