Koksilah Music Festival

Sep 8 - Sep 10 · Duncan, Vancouver Island

We are thrilled to announce the performance lineup of the Koksilah Music Festival taking place Sept 8-10 in Quw’utsun Territory at Tl’ulpalus (Cowichan Bay, BC). Our lineup is full of amazing Indigenous musicians, artists, and speakers from the resurgence movement as well as supportive performers from around the Pacific Northwest. Come hear what they have to say when they make their way onstage with a mic and some really big speakers. Camp out, dance, and help raise some money for the Resurgence.

The Koksilah Music Festival is organized in recognition and celebration of the sovereignty and resiliency of Indigenous Nations throughout BC. While 2017 marks the Canada’s 150th year, it also marks more than 500 years of Indigenous resistance to colonial exploitation and assimilation in this region. Our intention is to highlight the perspectives of Indigenous musicians, artists, activists and knowledge keepers. We are partnered with Quw’utsun elders and traditional leaders to ensure that this gathering reflects proper protocols and is accessible to the local Indigenous community.

All festival proceeds will be donated to grassroots initiatives led by Indigenous people asserting sovereignty over their ancestral territories. Funds will be split between the Xwaaqw’um cultural resurgence project, Unist’ot’en Camp, and Lax U’u’la Camp (Lelu Island). These groups are working tirelessly to re-occupy and protect their traditional lands and waters, revitalize their cultural practices, and reconnect people with the land.
