Also at the event will be the “Main Stage on Main Street” which will host a free concert with a Vancouver-centric lineup.

This includes longtime Vancouverite Hannah Georgas, The Belle Game, Schwey, and seasoned beatboxer and producer Shamik.

The free-for-all-ages (and fully licensed!) show will precede a major outdoor celebration concert which is set to be held at Jonathan Rogers Park.

VMF’s finale concert, new for this year, is headlined by a Tribe Called Red and Charlotte Day Wilson.
