BC’s first BIPOC music festival returns to Victoria next weekend (CONTEST)


Victoria, get hyped!

After a roaring success in its inaugural year, the Function Festival is returning to Victoria’s Inner Harbour next weekend—and you’re invited.

As BC’s first-ever BIPOC music festival, the event once again promises to be a jam-packed celebration of diversity and solidarity.

The all-ages festival goes down on August 19th at Ship Point in Victoria’s Inner Harbour, and will include a barber shop, kids’ zone, BIPOC Vendor Village, a diverse and multicultural variety of food options, and a 19+ VIP section.

Tickets for the event are on sale now, and start at just $65—and kids 12 and under get in for free!

Plus, we’ve partnered with the Function Festival to give away a pair of tickets to one lucky winner—you’ll find those contest details below.

Function is coming into the live music industry as a fresh and exciting new project in hopes of curating a world class entertainment experience that attendees and fans will never forget.

This year’s Function Festival will feature performances from local and international artists, including KYLE, Zach Zoya, Khanvict, Desiree Dawson, DACEY, and Dilly Cooner.

Headlining act, KYLE, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and actor from Ventura, California. He is best known for his 2016 breakout single “iSpy” (featuring Lil Yachty), which peaked at number 4 on The Billboard Hot 100.
