 WHAT IS THE KOKSILAH MUSIC FESTIVAL?

The Koksilah Music Festival is organized in recognition and celebration of the sovereignty of Indigenous Nations throughout BC. The Festival is run by a volunteer collective of musicians, artists, Elders, and community organizers who aspire to belong to vibrant communities working towards social justice, Indigenous resurgence, reconciliation, decolonization, stewardship of local ecosystems, and community-driven alternatives to the status quo. We believe in the power of music and art with a purpose, and in the importance of gathering in numbers to build our strength and amplify our voices.
