Throughout both days of the festival, July 23rd and 24th, there will be so many artists and performers ranging from a variety of cultural backgrounds; it’s going to get tricky trying to decide who to watch! Come for the food, and stay for the entertainment! Here’s our list of the top 5 artists that can’t be missed!

1) Colin Bullock

You’ll be mesmerised by singer-songwriter Colin Bullock with his fresh indie-pop approach to alternative country and 70’s folk style music. A one-man band, he’s a captivating performer with his soulful voice, and beautiful medley of acoustic guitar, foot percussion, tambourine and harmonica. You can catch him on Saturday July 23rd at the Canada 150 Stage starting at 4:45pm.


2) Star Captains

Canadian pop-synth band Star Captains have perfected the blend of old and new with their use of modern sound design and 70’s soul influence. Vibe to the beat laced fusion of synthesizers, classic guitar tones, and stunning vocals on Saturday July 23rd at the Concord Pacific World Music Stage at 7:30pm.


3) Michael Fraser

The first though that pops into your mind when you hear violins is probably classical music right? That’s certainly not the case for Michael Fraser; he artfully blends a unique mix of house music and the strings of his violin. Sounds weird on paper, but it’s magic to the ears! He’ll have you moving and grooving to the beat, taking you on a musical journey! You can find him Sunday July 24th at the Canada 150 Stage at 5:00pm.


4) Desiree Dawson

You may know her from CBC’s Searchlight concert or from her numerous shows in Metro Vancouver. White Rock singer-songwriter Desiree Dawson will grace the YVR Community Stage at 6:00pm on Sunday July 24th. Along with her trusty baritone ukulele, Desiree will send shivers up your spine as her soothing voice floats through the speakers.


5) Mazacote

West Coast Latin dance band Mazacote is bringing the streets of Colombia, Cuba, and Puerto Rico to Surrey with their horn driven New York salsa dura and Latin American beats! Your hips will be moving to the rhythm of the drums in no time. You can catch them Sunday July 24th at the SFU Celebration Stage beginning at 6:30pm.
