Here’s what to expect at ‘Tilt!’ the first of two Phillips Backyard festivals this summer


Phillips Backyard Festival Series has become an iconic fixture of summer in Victoria and this year’s ‘Tilt!’ edition of the multi-weekend event has raised the bar for what people can expect. 

Presented by Phillips Brewery and The Zone @ 91.3, Tilt! Will see some of the biggest names in music come to the city to share a stage with some exciting up-and-comers as well as a multitude of local legends.

Tilt! Will once again take place in the expanded Phillips Backyard over the weekend from July 5th to 7th.

The first day will see Saint Motel and Half Moon Run headlining with openers Hotel Mira, Vox Rea and OK Charlie warming up the crowd. 

Saint Motel are well known for their enthusiastic bops that make moving your hips and making your way to the dancefloor irresistible while Half Moon Run’s three-part harmonies and distinguished indie-folk sound have become a mainstay of Canadian music. 

Saturday’s lineup features Canadian superstar Jessie Reyez along with Flyana Boss. Reyez has collaborated and toured with Sam Smith and recently finished a stint opening for Billie Eilish while Flyana Boss is an American hip-hop duo who have taken the world of rap by storm since they came on the scene. BC’s own Sonreal, Liinks and Teon Gibbs will warm up the stage on Saturday. 

The finale of Tilt! Features none other than Canada’s own Orville Peck who has become one of the biggest names in country music along with his good friend and collaborator Noah Cyrus, sister of Miley Cyrus but an incredibly accomplished and irrefutable talent on her own. Before these two mega-stars take the stage, the Tilt! Audience will be treated to performances from Goldie Boutilier, Haleulya Hailu and Born Reckless.

Tickets are still available online for this unmissable weekend that will be one of the most talked about festivals Victoria has ever seen.
