Presented by Decolonial Clothing and ALIVE Society (Aboriginal Life in Vancouver Enhancement Society), the groundbreaking event made history with 4,000 attendees in its first year, and Circles Festival is now the largest Indigenous music and arts festival across Turtle Island.

“Often, Indigenous people don’t have safe spaces for our creative expression. We are building those safe spaces, we are grassroots, and doing the groundwork needed to bring healing to our community,” says award-winning hip-hop artist, activist and entrepreneur, Dakota Bear. “Music is a vehicle to drive our messages and amplify our voices, music is a universal language that brings people together. We will continue to build off the strength of our ancestors, and bring our truths to light and use our platforms to fight for justice.”
