solar-powered music festival
JULY 6-7, 2019



WEAYAYA is Sioux for "setting sun" that symbolizes the end
of one era, and the dawn of a new age.

The Weayaya Solar Powered Music Festival was inaugurated in
2013 to demonstrate the role of solar energy in fueling a new
reality, to promote Alberta talent, and to prove that solar
technology is a viable alternative to petroleum, coal, and
nuclear energy. "...we should spend every spare dollar on
developing ourselves as a new energy province, so that when
the time comes...we can be ready."
- Corb Lund (Alberta Views, October 2011) *.



That was almost a decade ago! The key is, indeed, for Alberta to be a NEW-energy province. For the past seventy-plus years, Alberta has been hailed as a major energy producer. Our potential does not end with oil, gas and coal - we need to change the source of our electrons. We need to change NOW: the continued decline in the oil and gas sector of our economy makes it necessary to change the focus of energy production.
Music is an integral part of the concept of Weayaya: it possesses the ability to draw souls together: it inspires, uplifts, rejuvenates, and gives us the courage to move forward. We hope to harness the power of music with the power of the sun to unite pioneering spirit with native stewardship to provide the impetus for change. As Pete Seeger said, "There is a lot of good music in this world and if used right, it may help to save the planet."
