Who

Amped is run by a group of passionate volunteers under Squamish Arts. If you’re keen on learning sound engineering, stage management, or just getting involved please reach out to [email protected]! We’re always accepting new volunteers.

Amped isn’t just for musicians – although we love to see local musicians! – we welcome emerging performance artists from all disciplines including theatre, poetry, comedy, busking, and more!

Amped in the Park is a program by youth for the whole community. This exciting program brings emerging artists, youth and older, to the stage to hone their craft in front of Squamish’s most enthusiastic audience! Volunteers coordinate the whole program, from sound and stage, to marketing and artist management.
