MASSif thanks its Presenters: Tribute Boardshop and Nelson Brewing Company!

ONE MORE SLEEP! MASSif wouldn’t be able to say that if it weren’t for two very important businesses: Tribute Boardshop and Nelson Brewing Company. Both are integral members of the Kootenay community. Both shared our vision for an independent heavy music fest. Both were extremely generous in their support. Please go buy your next snowboard, your next kicks, your next hat, anything you can from Tribute. Please drink lots of NBC beer.


MASSif thanks El Taco!

IMG_8202With the best burritos in town, El Taco has long been Nelson’s go-to favourite Mexican restaurant. They’ve been a MASSif Friend since the beginning and they want to be yours, too! It won’t take much of an effort, either… they’re less than a block away from the Legion! Muchas gracias, El Taco!

MASSif thanks our Backers!

These incredible businesses have supported MASSif in priceless ways. We can’t explain our grateful we are to our Backers: Lokel Hair Studio, Porcupine Wood Products, Hall Printing, Kootenay Co-op Radio, the Nelson & District Credit Union, and Mountain Hound Inn. Each one, from day one, has enthusiastically supported our mission of bringing a lung-shaking, bone-reverberating urban music festival to you. MASSif hugs to all our supporters!

MASSif thanks Vienna Cafe!


Sometimes, you don’t get outta bed till 2pm and all the breakfast griddles have long since gone cold. Sometimes, you need the biggest, most savoury omelet your senses can handle. Sometimes, you want a warm, laid back atmosphere with some of the nicest folk in town. If this is you, the Vienna Cafe is your spot. Find them at 411 Kootenay Street.

MASSif Festival is presented by Nelson Brewing Company and Tribute Boardshop.
