Don’t miss our opening night with music legends The B52s, followed by quintessential Canadian acts: Blue Rodeo, Bachman Cummings, and the Barenaked Ladies with special guest Kim Mitchell.

Hip Hop fans can groove to shows by Nelly, and TLC & Shaggy, while country fans will be entertained by Brothers Osborne. Take a trip down memory lane with R&B classics by Chaka Khan & Patti LaBelle. International Stars of Drag take to the stage for A Night of True Colours in an all-ages extravaganza hosted by Ginger Minj and featuring Vancouver’s own Kendall Gender.

You want big bands? We’ve got BIG BANDS: Chicago, Steve Miller Band, Cake, Gipsy Kings Feat. Nicolas Reyes, and The Beach Boys. And the largest group of musicians – The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra – round out this year’s exciting line-up with their tribute to the Beatles.

Reserved tickets are required for all shows. A limited number of $15-20 tickets are available for each show.

The Stars of the Peking Acrobats®

For the last thirty-two years, The Stars of the Peking Acrobats® have redefined audience perceptions of Chinese acrobatics. They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs and display their technical prowess at such arts as trick-cycling, precision tumbling, juggling, somersaulting, and gymnastics. They push the limits of human ability, defying gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility, and control, creating an exuberant entertainment event with the festive pageantry of a Chinese Carnival.
