Victoria Function Festival creates space for BIPOC performers

 

“I’ve never really felt like the events happening around the city were made for me and people who look like me. What I really want to do is to put something on for everyone to enjoy, and to highlight people who are most commonly missed or forgotten about.” — Festival organizer Charity Williams
 
 

THE FUNCTION FESTIVAL

With: Kaash Paige, Boslen, Notorious Cree, and more

Where: Ship Point, 812 Wharf St.

When: Saturday, Aug. 20, 2 p.m.

Tickets: $35 from functionfestival.com; children 12 and under are free

 

 

 

 

The idea for the Function Festival came to Williams in 2020 after she helped organize a Black Lives Matter peace rally in Victoria. She was also the lead organizer behind the controversial More Justice, More Peace mural in Bastion Square, which she hoped would further explore matters of equality in Victoria.

 

“I’ve lived in Victoria for almost 10 years and that was the first time I’d seen so many people of colour in one place,” she said of the peace walk.

 

“I was so overwhelmed with emotion, because of the great tragedy we were all there for, but also because I was seeing and meeting a community I had been longing for for such a long time. I wanted to recreate that space, but instead of coming together out of tragedy we’d come together out of joy and love.”

My friend's got a girlfriend / Man, he hates that ***** / He tells me every day / He says / Man, I really gotta lose my chick in the worst kind of way.’


Who knew Simple Plan was still around?

Welcome to 2022 where there is no mention of ticket prices … hopefully it’s not this flexible pricing where demand determines prices… not sure why we expected to sign in Friday for a surprise price

Too bad offspring fired their drummer for not getting the injection. Otherwise I would go see them. Smash was a great album.

^ Sucks for those who paid full price but very few tickets have sold so I am not surprised.

 

Next step is for one of the musicians to get sick and then just skip Victoria altogether.

Indeed. Sometimes what they do is discount groups of 4 tickets etc. This seems a bit more dire.

It's a very interesting story as to why Tom DeLonge left the band in the first place:

^ Pre-sales are doing very well today.  $1000 for floor tickets in New York.

bbno$’s latest music video filmed all over Greater Victoria

The Vancouver-born rapper has billions of streams on TikTok and Spotify

 

https://www.vicnews....eater-victoria/

 

 

Released Oct. 5, the music video is filmed at a number of locations throughout Greater Victoria.

The Vancouver-born artist released his first EP in 2017 and has had a meteoric rise since, with billions of streams on Spotify and Tiktok. But when he and his team reached out to My-Chosen Cafe, owner Shannon Madill was none the wiser.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I would say that's entertaining.   :thumbsup:

Now that the band has finally confirmed their comeback shows like the reunion tour, the "When We Were Young" festival appearance next October, and other projects, the outlet estimates the band could generate a whopping $250 million for their promoter, Live Nation.
