Music Programming

Keep your eyes and ears open for local music this summer!

Build Back Victoria Music Programming

As part of the Build Back Victoria initiative to support local businesses and our local music community to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, musicians and bands will perform downtown and in some City parks from June to September. From Friday to Sunday you can catch one-hour pop-up performances on Government Street between 12:30 pm to 7:00 pm, and one featured performance on Broad Street from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

Musicians are selected through a single-stage jury process in the spring and are paid by the City of Victoria.

The Eventide Music Series will again be live streamed on Twitch beginning in July 2021. We anticipate this eight week concert series returning to Centennial Square summer 2022. Artists and bands will livestream from various locations in Victoria and Vancouver weekly for at least eight shows throughout the summer. Live streams will be any day from Wednesday to Sunday, and for more information and updates on each week’s show, visit the Eventide Facebook page, facebook.com/eventidemusicseries.
