Music festival planned for next month in downtown Vancouver
It will be more than music.
As things start to open up, a music festival will return to downtown Vancouver in September.
The Monstercat’s Compound festival will take place on September 18th. Independent label electronica is holding the festival in two stages outside of its headquarters near Gastown.
In addition to music, the free event will include artwork, video games, and other activities.
“Taking place at Monstercat’s head office in Railtown, Compound is the only music festival currently approved on City of Vancouver property,” the label said in a press release.
Performers on stage will include The Funk Hunters from Vancouver, Tony Romero (a producer from Lyon, France) and Sabai, born in Thailand but based in Vancouver.
“We are delighted to bring Compound back for its fourth year with all new experiences and our largest lineup to date,” Monstercat spokesperson Jess Mitchell said in a press release. “After taking time off last year, we look forward to returning to our safe Vancouver community and showcasing incredible talent in music, art, technology and education. “
There will also be food trucks and a beer garden.
The festival will run from 2pm to 9pm at 380 Railway St. It’s free, but response is required. Those 19 and older can purchase a premium pass, with a few benefits.
