A Langley band is scoring some big exposure this weekend when they take the stage at the Squamish Valley Music Festival.

Little India, an indie-rock-pop band made up of members Conan Karpinski, Andrew Dixon, Dallyn Hunt and Tim Morrison, will be sharing the stage with more than 70 artists from around the globe at the popular music festival in Squamish.Last year, more than 100,000 people showed up for the event.

Originally from Langley, Little India has developed a fan base from Vancouver all the way to the United Kingdom.

Last year, the group won The Shore 104.3’s Best of B.C. and CFOX’s Seeds Competition.

Producer Michael Brauer, who has worked with Coldplay, The Rolling Stones, and Atlas Genius, mixed their debut EP Up All Night.

Frontman, Conan Karpinski, has been playing music since he could remember.

After moving from South Africa to B.C., he met band mates Dixon and Hunt while attending Walnut Grove Secondary School.

Recreational jam sessions in the basement led to the birth of Little India, and the later addition of band mate Tim Morrison.

This is the first time the band will be playing at a major music festival.

Catch them on the Garibaldi Stage at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 8.
