Otalith Weekend Passes
Weekend Passes are $92 + service charges (where applicable). Limited day tickets will be available at the door for $45 Friday, $65 Saturday. Weekend passes can be purchased at any of the fine retail locations below.
Otalith Music Festival brings performers from the folk, indie and bluegrass genres to one stage in Ucluelet, BC. Tofino Brewing will help wet your whistle, while Black Rock Oceanfront Resort is sponsoring our artist accommodation.
Part proceeds from Otalith will go to help support some great regional causes. Pacific Wild is an organization that helps support education, research and conservation of species and the environment in the Great Bear Rainforest. The Clayoquot Biosphere Trust supports community development, education and research in the UNESCO designated Clayoquot Biosphere Reserve and Region. We’re also hosting representatives from Surfrider Vancouver Island and Ocean Gybe.
Otalith 2013 is taking place at the Ucluelet Rec Hall Field at 160 Seaplane Base Road, Ucluelet, BC – Rain or Shine. There will be five food vendors and a beer garden. In the event of rain, there will be ponchos available. There is very limited parking on site, and some street parking, so we encourage you to seek accommodation nearby. We are working on putting a carpool system into place – keep checking back for details.
Tickets are $92 + service charge (where applicable) and can be purchased from various retail locations in Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo, Courtenay, Kelowna, Tofino and Ucluelet. Tickets can be purchased with cash only. Doing things this way enables us to offer you the best price with the lowest service charge. Please note: some locations do charge a service fee for tickets.
Kids under 12 are free. Proof of age will be required upon entry.
OH WE LOVE ALL OF YOUR DOGS, I PROMISE. But no, dogs will not be permitted on the festival grounds. And no, we will not be making exceptions to this rule (save for the obvious). Apologies in advance.
We would love help! Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

What is Otalith? How do I say it? What the heck?
We get asked this A LOT. Otalith [OH-tuh-lith] means an indie, folk and bluegrass concert in Ucluelet, BC. And a really great time. Yeah, we made it up…kind of. Otalith, when spelled “O-t-o-l-i-t-h” means a fish’s inner ear bone. Look one up, they’re pretty neat. But, we weren’t big fans of the spelling…so we changed it. And, by changing it, kind of appropriated the meaning.
Will There Be An ATM On Site?
What Kinds of Things are Prohibited?
No weapons. No outside liquids (no exceptions, save for babies). We will pour out all liquids, even if sealed. But not to worry – water is free onsite (provided you have a drinking vessel). No illegal drugs. You will be searched upon entering the fairgrounds. Use your common sense, friends!
