It’s the final the Phillips Backyard Music Festival of the summer!

This weekend will feature an array of BC and Canadian acts such as Nicky Mackenzie, Carmanah, Bankes Brothers and more to create a weekend not to be missed.

In addition, the Zambian hip-hop styling’s of Sampa the Great, the soul rock revue of St Paul & the Broken Bones, the subtle modern songwriter/pop flavours of Polaris shortlist candidate Charlotte Day Wilson Canada’s Andy Shauf and the recent folk/rock hits of Zella Day will grace the stage.
