CiTR 101.9FM, Discorder Magazine, Music Waste Festival, and CJSF 90.1FM present the Victory Square Block Party! It’s a full day of free music programming at Victory Square Park this Labour Day Weekend.
Celebrating 18 years, this annual event highlights local, independent music in a free end-of-summer celebration that also supports local non-profit and independent media organizations.
Victory Square Block Party
- When: Sunday, September 4, 2022 from 2:00pm to 9:00pm
- Where: Victory Square Park (Cambie and W Hastings, Vancouver)
- Admission: Free!
This year’s lineup features the psychedelic industrial stylings of x/o, art-rock darlings Kamikaze Nurse, jagged, raucous, and a little gooey post-punk from Pudding, the earnest buoyancy of Haleluya Hailu, flighty electropop from Cherry Blu, the 90s meets 3008 in Big City, Felisha & the Jazz Rejects’ decidedly not jazzy rock, and the forever cheeky Megamall.
There will also be a raffle with prizes from local organizations and businesses. The Yarrow Society, Vancouver Black Library, and Vancouver Tenants Union will have tables at the event. Partial sponsorship and raffle proceeds will be donated to Megaphone Magazine, a street publication sold by homeless and low-income vendors in Vancouver and Victoria.
After the main event, head to the after party at Red Gate Arts Society (1965 Main St, Vancouver) for DJs and karaoke from 9:00pm until late.
Can’t make it in person? Tune in to CiTR 101.9FM or watch a live stream.
