HERE WE GO AGAIN:
With the Massive Success of our last show; ‘Back to the Forest’, Hosted at a New Venue on Private Land, we have decided to once again host a Dance Filled Evening of Epic Proportions: The (First Annual) IUG Jamboree!!!
As always with IUG Events, we are trying to one-up ourselves and bring in even more Well-Reputed & Infamous Talent to perform for our guests… We hope that those who are familiar with the artists playing at this event will have their jaws drop when they see who we have booked to perform!!!
Kamloops and the Interior of BC as a whole has always had a strong Hip-Hop Presence, and for this event we wanted to show some love by including some of the most influential & dedicated local groups in the show, as well as bringing in One Notorious Headliner in the BC Hip-Hop Scene to switch things up a bit…
Hence the term ‘Jamboree’, a Celebration and Meet of both Dance & Hip-Hop Fanatics. Dance Music often incorporates elements of Hip-Hop, with remixes of well-known tracks and also original hip-hop lyrics being played over Various Genres of Bass Music. For this Event, We have booked Djs who have a flair for incorporating Lyricists into their tracks, as well, We hope that by bringing some Live Hip-Hop into the mix we will attract some new faces and even more fans to our shows… Spread the word.
At IUG: Interior UnderGround, we aim to provide Epic, Unforgettable Dance Events, but while doing so our #1 Priority is ensuring a SAFE ATMOSPHERE for every one of our guests. Please be sure to read ALL OF THE INFO listed below if you wish to attend this event, we have rules in place, and if you break them, it will be the last time you attend one of our shows.
-See you on the Dancefloor
The location is about a 30 minute or so drive from Outside the Kamloops City Limits, in the general area of PRITCHARD, between Kamloops & Chase. We will announce the exact event location 48 hours before the event takes place (Thursday, July 17th), posting specific Step-by-Step Directions as well as a Google Maps Link. You can also send me (Sean Mayo) a request for directions prior to this, if you need for planning, and I will forward to you through Private Message.
STAGE & SOUND
As in past years, we’ll have Massive Staging and Sound.
Think 40,000 watts of Bass, Think elevated stages and dance platforms, Think Big Lasers and Projected Visuals with Video Mapping, just think general awesomeness all around.
We are looking for Food, Clothing & Art Vendors! Vendors pay no ‘Vendor Fee’ to attend but are expected to be self reliant in providing and staffing their own ‘storefront’. Please contact Sean Mayo through Private Message on Facebook for more information and to apply.
SAFETY & SECURITY
***IMPORTANT MUST-READ INFO!!!***
At IUG: Interior UnderGround, the Safety of our attendees is Number 1 on our priority list.
We aim to have the event recognized as Safe, Secure, Well Patrolled, Well Maintained and Organized Properly.
We have a Large Number of Professional Staff on hand trained in both Security and First Aid for every event, both guarding the entrance and patrolling the grounds of the event itself. Pay attention to these next few crucial points as if you miss them it may affect you direly:
***ZERO TOLERANCE FOR INTOXICATED DRIVING***
Make no mistake, the local RCMP are aware of this event. They will definitley have a ROAD BLOCK at the entrance to the road that leads to this event. They are not stopping people from attending, they are simply looking for drivers already under the influence, so its simple: DONT START PARTYING UNTIL YOU’RE AT THE PARTY… Simple enough, right?
As well, you MUST plan to stay the night. The music goes from 6pm-7am, bring a tent and some sleeping gear and get yourself a good rest before heading home the following morning/afternoon. If you dont plan on staying the night and leaving before the morning has come, it is important you have a Designated Driver who can get you home safely!!!
Driving drunk not only endangers yourself, but also every passenger in your vehicle and anyone who you may cross paths with on the road. Anyone trying to leave the event while clearly intoxciated and under the influence behind the wheel will have their License Plate taken down and the RCMP called and informed. As hosts of this event, we are liable if you were to kill or injure somebody by leaving the event intoxicated, if you cant camp for the night or find yourself a DD, dont come! Its that simple.
*** NO HARRASSMENT***
If someone is Harrassing or Bothering you at all, you can brng it to the attention of any one of our Security Personnel, they will be highly visible wearing High-Vis reflective jackets. If you are the subject of a complaint about bothering someone you will be given a warning to stay away from them for the rest of the evening. if it happens again you’ll be removed from the site. You only get one warning!!!
***ZERO TOLERANCE FOR VIOLENCE***
No Warnings for Violence. If you are the kind of person who’s idea of fun is going out and picking fights, this is NOT the party for you. Leave your swaggering, aggressive ego at home, seriously. This party is all about good vibes, great music and awesome people.
Anyone being harassed or bothered can bring it to the attention of any one of our security or staff members at the stage or throughout the camp site, security and event volunteers are easily identified by their high-vis vests, any complaints will be dealt with immediately.
Our Security Team is hired from Bouncers straight out of the local clubs and bars, they know how to handle aggressive and violent people. If you start or are involved in a fight, we will not only break up the fight (forcefully if necessary) we will then drive you back into town where we will hand you over to the RCMP and have you CHARGED WITH ASSAULT. We don’t care about your personal beefs, or who offended you, or who hit on your GF, etc etc, if you cant be the bigger person and walk away or turn the other cheek or resolve it with words, if you choose to get violent with someone in ANY way for ANY reason at this show we will remove you from the event (again, by force if necessary) and hand you over to the RCMP. It’s that simple. You will also be publicly shamed on facebook and permanently banned from every future IUG event… Just don’t do it!!!
***RESPECT THE LAND – USE THE GARBAGE CANS, CLEAN UP YOUR SITE*** There will be Garbage Cans around the site at the dancefloor, please do your best to use the garbage can instead of throwing any garbage/drink cans etc onto the ground. When you pack up your camping area in the morning, please take any of your garbage with you, we will also be handing out Garbage Bags at the stage at 8am when the music stops if you need!!! There will be a team staying behind to clean all of the garbage after the show, just please do your best to use the garbage cans so we dont have to spend any longer than necessary cleaning! Thank you!
WEATHER: This event is happening 100% whether the forecast calls for rain or shine on the day of. In the event that there is rain forecast the day of the show, we will have special outdoor overhead canopies brought in and placed over the dance floor, usually used at weddings in case of rain. We will have two of these 40’x40′ Hexagonal canopies creating a massive covered dancing space and keeping you out of the rain while still having full view of the stage and effects.
Lets all cross our fingers and knock-on-wood and hope for good weather on the day of the show, the Weather Gods have always smiled on us in the past!
TEMPERATURE: Although average daytime temperatures in the Kamloops Almanac Vary from 20-30 degrees Celsius on this date, it is very important that you realize the temperature drops significantly at night, all the way down to 5-10 Degrees Celsius.
It is very important that you bring some warm clothing for the late evening and early morning hours!!! Bring an extra Sweater or Jacket and some warm pants or pyjamas, or a big blanket to wear around yourself, its important to be comfortable, the last thing you want is to end up being too cold to dance and enjoy yourself!!!
FIRE PIT: We are happy to announce that we will have a large designated firepit at this years event! It may get cooler at night so it will be a welcome and warm Chill-Out zone a little ways away from the stage, be sure to bring your camping chairs to pull up a spot next to the fire!
***Please note, this will be the ONLY fire we allow on the property, you will not be allowed to have individual camp fires near your tent, please respect this rule or you will be removed from the event.

SNAK THE RIPPER
In just 7 short years, Snak The Ripper’s life has dramatically changed. Going from homeless and completely unknown, to Underground Cult Phenomenon, to Record Label Owner and Entrepreneur . The Vancouver-based Rapper has over 5,000,000 unique views on YouTube, has headlined tours across Canada and Europe. He’s toured with well-known artists like Onyx and Swollen Members, and has played multiple dates on the Vans Warped Tour and at SXSW in Austin Texas. Snak’s stunning rise to Cult Icon coincided with a life and death struggle with substance abuse. Clinging to Music as he struggled to get himself clean, he released his debut The Ripper in 2007 and went on to sell several thousand copies online and at his live shows. His second album Sex Machine more than doubled the sales of his previous album, and has been downloaded countless times from almost every torrent website you could name. In 2012 Snak released his most successful project to date, White Dynamite, which spent over three weeks at #2 on iTunes HipHop/Rap Charts, and sold nearly 10,000 Digital Albums and over 22,000 Singles. His latest full length album Just Giver is set to be released this April 2014 on his own label, Stealth Bomb Records.
Growing up in an isolated small Canadian town, Snak The Ripper became involved in Graffiti by the age of 15. Following a freak accident with homemade explosives that nearly blinded him and severed part of his index finger, he became a social outcast. Angry and determined for the world to know his name, he pursued his passion for Graffiti, vandalizing his way across Canada. At 22, he had become a homeless drug-addled vandal. His friends were criminals, fiends and drug dealers and his depression spun out of control. “I found myself back in my home town, with no real friends, and no belief in myself at all. I weighed 140 pounds. Rock bottom is an understatement. I looked like a skeleton with skin.” Realizing he had to change his life or die, he sought out Music to save himself from himself. He not only saved his life, but also skyrocketed to popularity in the Canadian Hip Hop Industry. Snak is recognized by fans nearly everywhere he goes, and is considered to be one of the hardest working Independent Artists in Western Canada.
Search for ‘Snak the Ripper’ on YouTube or Google and check out his grimy street culture videos. Using his Graffiti cred from years in the Culture, Snak became the spokesperson for SDK (www.stompdown.ca). With over 75,000 subscribers worldwide, they are the largest Independent Canadian Channel on YouTube. The first Video/Single from White Dynamite, ”Forgotten” has generated close to 2,000,000 views on YouTube. Snak’s Facebook fan page has over 50,000 fans and counting. He has made sure to connect with his rising fan base on an individual level, interacting with them in person and all over the Internet. A Cult-like following has formed around this terrifically honest everyman Performer. That fan base has grown further as a result of Snak’s latest album receiving the support of FACTOR (the Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent On Recordings), as well as him sharing stages with Internationally recognized names including; Tech N9ne, Yelawolf, Swollen Members, Classified, Raekwon, and Macklemore. Snak’s latest album, ”Just Giver” spent over 2 weeks as #1 hip hop album in Canada on iTunes.
The Ripper is a master of cadence, tone and harmony, using his grimy vocals in all sorts of engaging ways. Backed by top-notch production, each song drips with venom. Snak sings like Bob Dylan, in a voice so ugly that we cannot help but feel it is our own. With cunning punch lines, a devious sense of humor, and the suffering soul of an everyman, Snak is a legitimate anti-hero in the making. Most hip hop these days glorifies materialism and fantasy. Snak the Ripper offers a refreshing dose of reality and truth through his music, something that everyone can relate to. With a clean mind and undeniable work ethic, Snak has made himself infamous in North America and Europe, and he’s only getting started.
