The lineup this year features BC’s finest in bluegrass, folk, soul, cumbia (that’s right, BC has a cumbia scene), blues, experimental, and more.

In the realm of folk, we are pleased to host the likes of Pharis and Jason Romero, Sarah Jane Scouten, Lydia Hol, Kym Gouchie, Leathan Milne, Colin Easthope, Rowan Dolighan, Malcolm Jack, Big Fancy, Saltwater Hank, M Lund, and more.

In the general direction of blues, we have Marin Patenaude, This Way North, The Cole Patenaude Band, Wooden Horsemen, and Red Monkey Black King.

For some straight up rock and roll, Vancouver’s indie cool kids Ponytails will hold it down, along with Cariboo punkers One Below.

On the jazzier side we are extremely excited to have The Ladies of Company B Jazz Band, as well as Pugs and Crows returning to Arts on the Fly.

Sitting firmly in the “other” category are acts like Wallgrin (operatic violin-vocal music for space-birds), Uschi Tala (dark and twisted electro-acoustic hip-hop), Blocktreat (groovy lo-fi shoegaze and indie-electronic), Mngwa (dancie-as-heck cumbia and hip-hop), and Torsten Muller (improvised virtuosic electric bass).

More artists are being announced weekly—keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages. Tickets are on sale now via

See you on the fly!
