Atmosphere Gathering set for weekend

Atmosphere Gathering

The atmosphere in Cumberland will be perfect for a gathering this weekend.

The inaugural Atmosphere Gathering gets going Friday.

The two-stage event – with one stage being inside a 1,000-person circus big-top tent – takes place at Cumberland Village Park and features more than 55 acts, from hip-hoppers to crooners to throat singers, and more.

A Tribe Called Red, Tanya Tagaq and Gaudi are among the acts scheduled to appear.

Tickets for Atmosphere Gathering are $140 for the weekend, or $70 and $80 for day passes. They are available at Bop City, the Waverley Hotel or online at www.cumberlandvillageworks.com. Children under 12 are admitted to this family-friendly affair for free, when accompanied by an adult.

Camping passes (onsite camping is $40 for the weekend) and meal packages (Gourmet Girls are offering five hot meals for $60) for Atmosphere Gathering are also available at the same website.
