The second annual Koksilah Music Festival will be back on Sept 7 – 9 at Tuwe’nu (Providence Farm) in Tl’upalus (Cowichan Bay). The goal of this family-friendly event is to amplify the voices of Indigenous artists and to raise support for grassroots, Indigenous-led cultural resurgence initiatives in BC. The festival also seeks to foster solidarity between Indigenous and settler communities through musical celebration.
Proceeds from the festival will be directed to the Sul’wheen Elders Program which supports the health of Quw’utsun Elders, Unist’ot’en Camp who are opposing frack gas pipelines in their territory, and the Awinakola Warriors and Cleansing Our Waters campaigns to oppose open-net fish farms.
Indigenous hip-hop acts Snotty Nose Rez Kids and Mob Bounce will headline the festival along with Toronto duo Phoenix Pagliacci and Lex Leosis of The Sorority. The line up will feature over 30 bands and artists including Indigenous singer/songwriter Ta’kaiya Blaney, spoken word artist Valeen Jules, and audio-visual/DJ production duo the See Monsters.
