Keep the party going, Victoria!

The second Phillips Backyard Music Festival of the season is just around the corner and will feature international headliners mixed with rising local and Canadian talent.

The Phillips Brewing’s weekend concert series kicked off back in mid-May, marking the return of backyard parties!

The first weekend of music, known as GLITTERBOMBER, included performances by Future Islands, Bryce Vine, Durand Jones and The Indications, The Zolas, Begonia, Astrocolor, Murge’s Golden Era of Hip Hop and more.

As expected, there will be a variety of cold, crisp, refreshing Phillips Beers as well as non-alcoholic options. Refillable water bottle stations will also be available for festival-goers.

There will also be several food trucks on location to keep you topped up for dancing the day away!

The next event, known as TILT!, will take place on July 9th and 10th and will feature a lineup of Half Moon Run, The Beaches, Current Swell, Snotty Nose Rez Kids, Fleece, Hotel Mira, Old Soul Rebel, Witch Prophet and more.
