Super-Spike, presented by Michelob Ultra, is excited to announce that over 420 teams and 3,500 participants have officially registered for this weekend’s festival. Super-Spike, which takes place this Friday July 20th & Saturday July 21st at Maple Grove Rugby Park, combines Western Canada’s largest outdoor/beach volleyball tournament with a weekend-long concert series, all set in a festival atmosphere. New this year, Ultimate Frisbee has been added as an additional sport that will run in conjunction with the volleyball tournament. 22 teams will be taking part in the inaugural Ultimate tournament at Super-Spike. Along with the tournament participants, thousands of additional attendees are also expected through the gates to watch the bands and take in the action and fun.
Super-Spike is excited to welcome Canadian rockers ‘Monster Truck’ as this year’s event headliner performing Saturday July 21st on the ‘Recycle Everywhere Main Stage’. Along with Monster Truck, Canadian indie rockers The Elwins will be headlining on Friday July 20th. Also scheduled to perform at the festival are The Pistol Whips, Vikings, Deep Dark Cave, Leanne Pearson, The Middle Coast, The Honeysliders, Ras Tamils, and the Dust Rhinos.
Although tournament/team registration is now closed, weekend long concert and festival passes for non-tournament participants are still available and can be purchased on-line at www.superspike.ca for only $35.00 in advance, $40.00 at the door.
The detailed event schedule including band times is now available and attached, along with an event FAQ. Any media outlets who wish to cover the event, are asked to contact email@example.com to have advance accreditation left for them at the front gate/will call.
The event is requesting the media’s assistance in helping promote to the public the FREE Park & Ride Shuttle system taking place at the University of Manitoba’s U-Lot across from Investors Group Field. Unless public have purchased a premium parking pass, they are not allowed to park at the Maple Grove Rugby Park festival site due to limited parking capacity. Please visit http://www.superspike.ca /venue/parking/ for detailed information on the free park and ride.
Super-Spike, now in its seventeenth year, also acts as a significant local charitable fundraiser with over $1.2 million raised to date. The event splits its proceeds between three charitable organizations including Volleyball Manitoba as a staple annual partner, and two rotating new charities each year selected through an annual application process. KidSport Manitoba, and the True North Youth Foundation have been selected as the two other Super-Spike charitable recipients for 2018.
