We gather to celebrate our music, art, culture, creativity and our people.
In 2019 crowds gathered on a sunny warm August day at Gorge Park in the traditional territories of the Lək̓ʷəŋən people for the first inaugural Indigifest, a free one-day festival with two live music stages. The festival featured people from FPCC arts programs – performers, production, technical personnel and festival management.
The 2021 virtual event features 18 uniquely talented emerging, midstream and established Indigenous artists live-streaming performances on four consecutive Thursdays in August. You can access and watch the concerts starting on August 5th on the Indigifest website: www.indigifest.ca
This free event, offers an opportunity to share and celebrate diverse Indigenous music from across British Columbia with performances from the Kwadacha Nation in Fort Ware 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. In 2021, performances will be live-streamed through the FPCC developed streaming platform. This pilot project ensures the security of the performances and artist copyright.
Indigifest is a special celebration, an opportunity for us to share and celebrate Indigenous culture and music. Visit the website link below for a full list of performers and workshop hots.
FPCC plans to continue this event every two years.
