INDIGIFEST 2021 – a virtual celebration of Indigenous music, arts and culture from across British Columbia every Thursday evening in August.
The First Peoples’ Cultural Council (FPCC) is hosting a free, live, online celebration of Indigenous music, arts and culture throughout the month of August. The 2021 virtual INDIGIFEST will feature 18 uniquely talented Indigenous artists from all corners of the province on every Thursday evening at 7 p.m. PST in August.
Following the successful inaugural INDIGIFEST in 2019, this free event offers an opportunity to share and celebrate diverse Indigenous music from across the province with performances from the Kwadacha Nation in the north to the Nuučaan̓uł (Nuu-chah-nulth) territory on Vancouver Island. INDIGIFEST represents musical genres from classic country to timeless folk and from blues to Hip Hop.
“By streaming this year’s festival for free online, First People’s Cultural Council is making Indigenous culture even more accessible, showcasing Indigenous talent to a worldwide audience,” said Sae-Hoon Stan Chung, Chair of BC Arts Council. “FPCC has also worked with artists behind the scenes, making sure they were technically well prepared to meet this opportunity. The BC Arts Council is proud to support FPCC and Indigifest and we hope that everyone will take this opportunity to enjoy and be inspired by these wonderful Indigenous artists and creators.”
We have INDIGIFEST artists, MC’s and FPCC staff who are available for interviews. If you would like more information or to book an interview, please contact Indigifest@fpcc.ca or call 604-328-7397.
