All the info is over here. Take a peek!
It’s about as downtown as you can get, right on the Inner Harbour. It’s just down the stairs from Tourism Victoria and Milestones restaurant, across the harbor from the Legislature. Here’s a map.
Yes… and no. But mainly yes. All of our afternoon and evening shows at the Ship Point venue, Dance Victoria Ballroom on July 14th and our Rocksteady Collective venue (725 View Street) are all ages (with beverage garden for those with ID), but all of our night shows at bars and nightclubs are 19+. Most of the festival’s headliners are all ages shows.
Definitely! Lots of people bring their kids to our Ship Point shows… and those people are awesome people.
Yup, kids 5 and under ride for free!
Yup… there are lots of awesome hand-picked food vendors on site, and a beverage garden for those of you with two pieces of government issued ID.
Very much so! We will have full-stream recycling, composting, and a small army of Green Team volunteers roaming the grounds. Read our full Green Plan here.
No outside liquids are allowed onsite, and any found by security will be dumped at the front gate. Water and other beverages are available at the venues-- and there will be a free water refill station available at Ship Point.
Also no alcohol, drugs, drug paraphernalia, weapons, laser pointers, audio/video recording devices, camping equipment, chairs, musical instruments, or over-sized umbrellas.
Empty plastic and metal water bottles are allowed.
Sunscreen, an empty water bottle, ear plugs, a jacket if the night gets cold, and some good vibes -- actually lots of 'em!
No… we are located in the heart of downtown, and so to pitch your tent nearby will mean going rogue in the park. There are camp sites on the outskirts of town, but that's a bit of a commute to the festival each day.
As a matter of fact, we do have a couple suggestions! Paul’s Motor Inn is a really cool retro joint, with affordable rates, great service and just a short stroll from the festival. For something a little more stylish, and with great views overlooking the harbour, there’s the Executive House Hotel.
Both are sponsors of the festival, big supporters of community arts, and run by genuinely awesome people!
