Because Beer Announces 2017 Music Lineup

Summer weekends go better with awesome craft beer — and great music only makes things better. It’s in that spirit that Because Beer, Hamilton’s premier craft beer festival, unveils the music stage lineup, appearing at scenic Pier 4 Park over the weekend of July 14-15, 2017.

Because Beer’s live music lineup has always been a hit with festival-goers, and organizers have expanded the slate of talent for Because Beer 2017, including stellar headliners Sloan and Said the Whale.

On Friday, July 14, Because Beer’s music stage includes dancefloor-filling powerhouse Diamond DJ Collective (7:00pm), sensational retro cover band Born in the Eighties (8:45pm) performing an all-Weezer set, and legendary Canadian power-pop quartet Sloan (10:30pm).

On Saturday, July 15, Because Beer’s music stage will host introspective indie pop outfit Basement Revolver (7:00pm),  exuberant Toronto indie pop ensemble Fast Romantics (8:45pm), and buoyant Vancouver indie rockers Said the Whale (10:30pm).  

Because Beer will take place Friday, July 14 and Saturday, July 15, 2017 at Pier 4 Park in Hamilton, Ontario. Festival gates will be open on Friday from 3pm-12am and Saturday from 2pm-12am.
