The dream of the ‘90s is alive in Ambleside.

Weezer and Third Eye Blind have been named as the headliners of this year’s Ambleside Music Festival, to be held in West Van's beachside park on Aug. 19 and 20.

GSL Group, the nostalgia-tinged festival’s promoter, announced the full concert line-up on Wednesday including Weezer, Third Eye Blind, Canadian guitarist Bahamas, Vancouver indie rock darlings Said the Whale and 90s hip-hop collective Bran Van 3000. More acts will be announced in the coming weeks, according to GSL.

Beyond the rock and/or roll, the festival will have merch, food trucks, craft beer, wine tastings and other activities.

The festival has now launched sales for those wanting to buy two-day passes ($215) and VIP packages ($365). The VIP package comes with access to a private bar with premium booze and one free drink per day, early entry, private VIP washrooms, swag and a separate seating area.

The Ambleside Music Festival is now in its 10th iteration. Past headliners have included Neil Young, The Offspring, Ed Sheeran and Kenny Chesney, and Sheryl Crow.
