As a paperless program, the free app is part of Interstellar Rodeo’s efforts to reduce the festival’s environmental footprint. On this front, Interstellar Rodeo announces a new eco initiative – festival crew, artists, and backstage hospitality will be provided with refillable bottles this year in an effort to dramatically reduce the use of plastic water bottles. This is a significant first step in decreasing our overall environmental impact.

Audiences are also encouraged to bring their own refillable bottles, as there will be plenty of free water stations throughout the site.

Also new this year will be AFTER INTERSTELLAR, an official festival after-party happening 10pm-2am on Saturday, August 13 in the newly renovated Food Hall at The Forks Market. There will be wine and food samplings and performances by Duotang and DJ Co-Op. After Interstellar is presented by Winnipeg Wine Cru. For tickets, visit www.interstellarrodeo.com. Tickets are available to the general public, but #iRodeoWPG weekend pass holders receive a 20% discount.
