Vancouver Folk Music Festival Free Online


With the Festival being cancelled this year, we are all grieving not being able to gather with you – our community of artists, audience, vendors, volunteers and sponsors – in person the weekend of the Festival. To help fill that gap, we will be presenting a “Digital Festival Experience” with a variety of offerings (big announcement coming soon!) AND starting today, for the next 8 days leading up to the digital experience, we will be showcasing some of the many amazing artists who would have performed at the 2020 Festival. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for our daily announcements. Scroll to the bottom of this newsletter to read about and listen to the first featured artist, William Prince.
Immerse yourself in the VFMF 2020 “Digital Festival Experience”, July 18th and 19th!


We have been working hard to present to you, the 2020 VFMF “Digital Festival Experience”, July 18th and 19th.

The Digital Festival Experience will feature a series of free 30 minute live concerts, filmed at the historic Cultch Theatre and featuring Geoff Berner,  Lache Cercel’s Roma Jazz, Oh Susanna, M’Girl, Katari Taiko, and the Wild Blue Herons.

The performances will be available to view on our website, (no social media accounts needed).

As well, on Sunday starting at 4 pm, What The Folk on Coop Radio, will present 90 minutes of dedicated Vancouver Folk Music Festival music (

But that’s not all! We have also got a number of fun and exciting opportunities for you to create your own “at home festival” experience including, Festival t-shirts (which will be available to purchase soon!), a digital Festival BINGO card – with the chance to win prizes and more!

All offerings will be free, and available to enjoy at your leisure.

MORE DETAILS coming next week – STAY TUNED!


VFMF 2020 Artist Spotlight: William Prince


William Prince, from the Pegus First Nation in Manitoba, (now living in Winnipeg) was one of the performers planning to come to play at VFMF this summer.  His hauntingly beautiful voice and lyrics have made William a modern Canadian Folk icon. Enjoy this timely video from his latest release Reliever.  Reliever explores themes of what, who and how, peace is found.
