Your summer soundtrack just got a whole lot sweeter, because the official lineup for the 2023 Khatsahlano Street Party has been revealed.

Vancouver’s largest free music and arts festival is presented by the Merchants of West 4th Avenue and takes place on Saturday, July 8 between Burrard Street and Macdonald Street.

This year’s Khatsahlano Street Party theme is #EarnYourStripes, with all festival goers invited to experience a series of must-see and do highlights. And the huge roster of musical acts curated by Zulu Records is sure to have something for everyone.

“For all of us involved in presenting Khatsahlano, we are grateful for the opportunity to present such a diverse selection of some of the finest music this region has to offer,” said Grant McDonagh of Zulu Records in a release. “Khatsahlano again showcases so many great local musicians, worthy of seeing year round, wherever they might perform.

“Such a selection of talent, encompassing 10 blocks on West 4th on July 8th, It’s truly a treat to the ears of anyone attending.”
